In an Australian eucalyptus forest, a baby koala sleeps inside her mother's pouch. At first she isn't curious about her surroundings and never leaves the warmth and safety of the furry pouch. When she is six months old, she finally crawls out for the first time. Later the little one rides on her mother's back when they search the forest for tender leaves to eat. The young koala has lots to learn before she faces the outside world alone, including the greatest danger of all - a forest fire.
