We were excited to take this cruise to see those cute koalas! The cruise took about an hour and a half to get to the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary. There was an entertaining and informative taped audio presentation on the history of Brisbane and the sights along the way. The seating was plastic lawn chairs. There were blankets in a... More

Fabulous day on the water and at Lone Pine Sanctuary. There is nothing quite as adorable as having your picture taken with a Koala or feeding a joey in her mother's pouch. Just the right amount of time on the boat and with the animals. A must when visiting Brisbane.

The Miramar Day Cruise to Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary is enjoyable, relaxing, and informative. The river cruise is interesting and there was good narrative during the cruise to the the sanctuary. The captain and staff were friendly and helpful and provided additional information to the narrative. The Lone Pine Sanctuary provided a great way to see the "roos" and koalas... More

Excellent cruise with very interesting commentary on the sights along the river. Staff is really nice, which makes the trip even more special! Totally worth it.

Wonderful cruise down the river. My wife wanted to go and I did not, BUT, after boarding the boat and seeing Brisbane from the boat (with commentary), I enjoyed it very much. The animal sanctuary was a great outing.

I have read many of the reviews accredited to the Mirimar II and it would be very hard to add anything more then what has been said about this fantastic day on the Brisbane River and our visit to the Lone Pine Sanctuary. I am doing this review to help other passengers like ourselves who arrived in Brisbane by Cruise... More

The Mirimar Koala Cruise was the highlight of our trip to Brisbane and I could not recommend it more highly. The staff on the boat were all incredibly friendly. The commentary as we made our way from the CBD to the Koala sanctuary was witty and relevant - it kept you listening because you didn't know what funny quip was... More

The crew were amazing and that started from boarding to when we left the cruise on our return to Brisbane. The added bonus was just turn up and get your ticket on board without having to waste time booking in advance. The cruise to Lone Pine and it is certainly the way to do it, with a nice relaxing cruise... More

We bought a 3-choice Brisbane iVenture flex card from the Visitor Center for $70 AUD and thought it was a great deal by using it for this Lone Pine Mirimar Cruise, the Lone Pine Sanctuary Entrance, and the hop-on/ hop-off bus. For use with our card, you don't make a reservation and just show-up. The boat arrived on time and... More
