I have been next to a koala before but never held one. I know it is illegal in some states to do this now and maybe people think its cruel but I think lone pine have it right. If the koala doesn't want to do it, they don't make them. The ones we saw seemed happy enough to get some attention and even tried to make an appearance during the presentation! Lots of other things to see and as part of the Mirimar cruise it was a lovely day out. $16 to cuddle a koala and get a photo...well worth it I thought.
