Enjoyed getting close up with the indigenous animals of Australia - particularly cuddling a koala and feeding and stroking kangaroos. Visited as part of the Koala cruise package from Miramar Cruises. An hours informative journey up the river, two and a half hours visit to the sanctuary - long enough for a good look round and a snack lunch -... More

I began visiting the LKS when I arrived in Aus 10 years ago and quickly became enamoured with it. My children loved going there when they were little and, no matter how often we went, there was always some small detail that changed - and sometimes some big details - each time we went. My children have grown out of... More

I live locally to Lone Pine and have never been disappointed. There are a number of shows on throughout the day that you can watch that will keep your day entertaining and busy- there are bird shows, koala shows, sheep shearing shows and more. The kangaroos are extremely tame so you are able to touch them and feed them without... More

I have had the luck to visit Lone Pine several times over the years when I visit Brisbane. The location is small, but well laid out and family friendly. If it is your first visit to Australia, it is a great way to get hands-on with Koalas and kangaroos (for me, the first time was awesome....actually, every time has been... More

Feeding Kangaroos and holding a Koala, what more can I say other than it was a once in a lifetime experience for me.

Do not go here expecting a full sized zoo. The place is fairly small but offers great close encounters with native animals of Australia. Great place for kids and for a full day with the family!

In my opinion the best zoo in Brisbane. Plenty to look at and they have daily shows with various animals.cuddle a koala snake or sea eagle. Great for kiddies. Good pricing as in admission. A must see if visiting Brisbane if you enjoy animals.

Very good pet zoo in Brisbane. The best part being able to pet kangaroos and koalas. Must do is taking a picture with Koala (the fee collected is used (funding) towards their preservation) Nice presentation about Koala after lunch

Great family day out. Easy to get to location. Great interaction with the animals. Plenty on the entertainment agenda. Staff approachable and friendly. Can take own food for picnic or cafes available if preferred.
