I thought we were going here so my wife could hold a koala bear, but it was so much more. From the variety of animals and the ability to interact with them so closely... especially the kangaroos. I highly recommend a visit!

Went on a river trip with MIramar Tours spent 5 hrs cruising the river and in the koala sanctuary. A lovely way to spend the day. The koalas are very cuddly and well cared for. There are also lots of other animals to see, kangaroos, platypus and many more. Definitely enough to keep the kids amused.

Visit Brisbane, VISIT LONE PINE! Since Queensland is the only Aussie state you can legally cuddle a koala, Lone Pine is the great place to it. Very affordable. You don't need to allocate a full day - just a few hours.

I visited Lone Pine on my 2nd day in Brisbane. It was about a 30 min bus ride from where I was staying (Auchenflower). We got there soon after it opened so that we could avoid the heat of the day, unfortunately it was a bit too chilly that morning. I have always avoided zoos, but the sanctuary was lovely.... More

While living in the Gold Coast, we went on a day trip to Brisbane. After a few hrs, we'd decided that we'd seen all we wanted to see in the CBD, so we went tothe visitor info centre and saw a leaflet for Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary. It was a bit of a way out of Brisbane (about 45\50 mins)... More

Wether you are a solo traveller, couple or a family, Lone Pine is a must do when near Brisbane. There are loads of things to do and lots of animals for photo opportunities! My son loved holding a Barn Owl and a Koala (you can also hold Eagles, snakes, and even a baby croc) and have photos of each. There... More

we went during winter school holidays and it was great. I have an 11 year old, 4 year old and 1 year old and all had a great time. It is cheaper to buy tickets online. Best thing is you can have a koala photo taken at any time of the day. Also if you purchase a photo you can... More

The Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary was the highlight of my trip to Australia. You get to be up close with kangaroos and koalas. A total dream of mine! My bf and I did purchase the koala experience. I was slightly disappointed because I didn't get to spend anymore time holding them than the normal koala cuddle. The only difference was... More

A fun if touristy day out. Cuddle a koala, stroke and feed the kangaroos and wallabies up close, watch a sheep shearing demo and even see a platypus. Pleasant environment and reasonable value if booked in advance

This is our first visit to Lone Pine and we love it. It is not to far from the Brisbane city ( about 20 min drive, you may also take the bus). You can have the Shepherd Dog and Sheep Shearing show, Bird shows, Educational sessions on dingo, python and crocodile. You may come in close contact with kangaroos, emus... More
