The Bilby was once found across 70% of mainland Australia. Now the Bilby is extinct in NSW, VIC and SA.
In QLD they are most threatened and a small wild population of approximately 600 animals remains.

This year’s Easter Bilby Colouring Competition Entry Form includes a map to show where Bilbies live today (coloured orange),
and where they used to live before European settlement.
