  • A lovely place! Quiet, well maintained and a pleasure to visit. Mixing with the Kangaroos was a great experience and seeing the Koalas too. Great for all ages.  more »
  • Definitely worth a visit. but given the publicity I expected a lot more, especially because we are in Australia! Very nice space for Kangaroos. with the chance to touch them and feeding them without paying duties ... also nice the area reserved for koala ... that for you can take a picture of embracing them. But beyond this nothing that ... I imagined to find crocodiles (there were only 2 tiny alligators), reptilian space almost nonexistent, few birds, you know it can be improved a lot ... especially reminding us that we are in Australia!! We say that with 1 and a half hours it runs everything.

  • We enjoyed our adventure to Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary. The boat ride there was very interesting and included great commentary by the boat captain. The Sanctuary itself is all about Koala and other Aus...  more »

  • If you've got visitors from overseas, Lone Pine is worth a visit. The facilities are in great condition and there's plenty of parking. Check the website for the presentation times as these are well worth going to. If you don't make it to any of the presentations there's still plenty to see. A great selection of birds and animals and you can even feed and pat kangaroos and emus! The park has good free wireless coverage and plenty of spots with power and USB chargers available if your phone is getting a little low on the juice too. Thumbs up to whoever made that happen.
  • definetly worth a visit if you're in brisbane. the Animals are so cute and well taken care of. the keepers are well informed and there's so much to learn from them. to keep a look out for the feeding and show timings.
  • Had a very good experience here. Military discount, free Wi-Fi, friendly staff and you get to hug koala's n kangaroo's.
  • Way better than I expected. Arrived by Ferry and left by bus. Both good services. There is a very steep path from the the wharf to the park. Not sure how the ferry people let people know if they can't make it. The park runs reasonably. Like all such places the admission costs are steep. Maybe zoo keeprs are all millionaires! Decent value though. Lone Pine has been a classic for years, but this was my first visit. I am not unhappy with the experience, but it will probably be a one-off for me.
  • Best place in Brisbane to cuddle koalas and kangaroos and learn lots of other Australian wildlife. Sheep dogs show is one of the best, try to not miss it, when there! It is worth to support this place and spent money there.
