Great location to experience Australian wild life as close as it can get. Especially the Kangaroo enclosure is a must with the chance to get very close to the animals and even to feed them. Dingos, Tasmanian devils, crocodiles etc. are there, however in pretty small and narrow compartments. The koala cuddle area can get very busy and commercial but... More

Lovely day out despite the rain and os ncie to get up and close to the animals. Went there via boat which was lovely up seeing all the fabulous houses en route. There up the steps to the front door of the sanctuary was a warm welcome from the staff. Close contact with the kangaroos and Koala,just a wonderful experience... More

You will not regret visiting Lone Pine Sanctuary. You have the chance of getting near Kangaroos with their babies inside their pouch. You can feed the Kangaroos but you buy food from the Gift Shop.You will see and watch Koalas sleeping or eating Eucalyptus leaves. Do not miss having a photo holding a Koala. Be careful with their claws. One... More

If you have a chance take the river boat cruise and lone pine package it was a great way to fit in a river cruise along with the Koala sanctuary. The river cruise is guided so you get a good commentary on the city as well as amazing little cafe on the vessel with very reasonable prices and good selection.... More

A 25 minute cab ride from downtown Brisbane. A unique place where you can hold a koala, feed a kangaroo, admire a fast swimming platypus and many more. Just awesome!!! I did not realize how laid back koalas are and how friendly kangaroos can be. I stayed away from an emu, but snapped some cool photos. My kids' favorite one... More

This is a fantastic place very close to the city to see and even cuddle some of our native wildlife, particularly koalas and kangaroos. Good for Australian visitors and great for international tourists. Food was okay, and not as expensive as I expected. Buying feed for the kangaroos was a waste of time and money. Was very expensive and kangaroos... More

Great place for overseas visitors and families to discover up close a wide range of Australian fauna. Well set up within a rainforest environment as well as a walk through area to get close to kangaroos and wallabies. The koalas themselves are worth visiting, and the opportunity for a phot cuddling one is a good option.

Great place to take young family to see animals. Get there early so the animals have not been fed too much. Have taken my children there on many occasions and they have always loved it. They have the chance to feed the Kangaroos in a large enlosure that you walk through. It has the typical farmyard area with sheep etc... More
