    There is/are...inverted sentence

    There are many birds and some koalas in K-land Zoo.

    Q:
    Can we say: In K-land Zoo, there are many birds and some koalas.

    Someone told me that it is an inverted sentence. The sentence has to be like this: In K-land Zoo are many birds and some koalas.
    Or In K-land Zoo has many birds and some koalas.

    I do not know which is right and why.

    Thank you

    All are OK.
    ''In K-land Zoo" is emphasized.
    an opinion.

    Remove the preposition 'in'.
