We booked a 2 hour river trip on the Miramar 2 up from Brisbane to Lone Pine. What a beautiful trip that is, well worth the money by itself. The sanctuary was such a fabulous surprise, it's big, the animals are freely ranging around, there's lots to see and the staff are first class. As soon as we got there... More

Fantastic interaction with fauna in Australia. Make sure you have enough time. Best times are feeding time. Offers plenty for the amount. If you are new in Brissy you could take a tour of the river with the Koala visit. Worth the mobey

Beautiful and friendly native animals with a range of shows during the day that is both fun and educational for all ages. I have never seen so many koalas concentrated in one sanctuary. Staff are very friendly as well.

This attraction is a must visit for those who visit Brisbane. Here you could experience cuddling a koala, feeding the kangaroo, and observing other animals specifically belong to the Australian continent such as platypus and dingos.

(Visited in 2015, so apologies for late review) If you are looking for a zoo near Brisbane where you can see a lot of different kinds of animals, go to Australia Zoo. BUT, if you are interested in Koalas and Kangaroos, I do not think there is a better place on earth than Lone Pine. At Lone Pine, you can... More

Visited here with relatives from interstate having been a Brisbane resident for a few years. This was my first time to visit the sanctuary having heard a lot of positive feedback about it previously. The park itself is well appointed and relatively easy to get around. The animal enclosures are very accessible which was great as we had our little... More

I have never seen so many koalas in one place!! Every time I turned around there was another tree with another adorable koala in it. I also paid $18 and got to hold a koala, got to take personal pictures with it, and got a professional picture with a digital download! I was very impressed with how much was included... More

It is a Sanctuary, not only for Koalas. They have some birds, a Tasmanian Devil, Kangaroos, snakes and most impressively, a platypus. The animals looked happy there. Note that the surroundings are set in a very natural manner and they have the wild eastern water dragons running all over the place. I even saw a few giant huntsman spiders around.... More

Although worth going, to support the good work the sanctuary does, and if you want to have a photo taken holding a koala. However this is far more commercialised than it was in the past. Expansion isn't always a good thing especially if it becomes tacky. Cafe inside is very poor and best avoided. There is one just outside but... More
