While on an early morning bushwalk, Bindi and her best friend, Rosie, notice smoke on the horizon. It’s a bushfire! As the girls watch, hot winds fan the flames, spreading the fire across the national park. The girls rush to volunteer at the Australian Wildlife Hospital caring for victims of the fire. Can they save a mama koala and her baby joey?
