The koala, with gum leaves in his paws, appeared to have his arms and legs wrapped around the wooden post.
The photo was posted on Facebook by Koala Rescue Queensland, calling on anyone with information to contact Queensland Police.
The death of a koala found screwed to a post in Australia has sparked an outcry from animal rights groups and prompted a police investigation.
Koala Recue Queensland Inc released the shocking image with the warning: "All is not as it seems in this photo".
"I simply can not believe this".
"They have evil minds and need to be dealt with accordingly". It's heartbreaking to imagine the suffering of this poor dear koala! The incident happened at a lookout at Brooloo Park, a town 85 miles (140km) north of Brisbane, Queensland.
If someone has subjected the koala to such extreme cruelty while it was still alive they could face up to seven years' jail and a fine of more than £150,000.
"Police are now investigating the matter", Senior Sergeant Pierre Senekal, at nearby Kenilworth, told Reuters on Thursday.
"We've had koalas shot a few times".
"If it was proved that somebody did inflict injuries that caused the koala to die they will be charged with animal cruelty and possibly even worse under the criminal code", he said. Aan is to undergo an operation that could restore her sight.
RSPCA spokesman Michael Beatty said an inspector had been assigned to the case and would try to organise an autopsy.
Koalas are one of Australia's major tourist attractions and are often inaccurately described as bears, but are in fact marsupials, a mammal whose young are suckled in a pouch. Koalas are also prone to chlamydia, leaving them blind and infertile.
The koala was listed as a "vulnerable" species under an Australian conservation law in 2012.
