  • Great day at Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary! There were so many koalas and lots of other Australian animals - the staff were all really friendly and there's lots of free talks and events throughout the day too. Highlights were meeting the koalas and feeding friendly kangaroos and wallabies. Only (very small) downside was the café - the food was fine but there wasn't a lot of choice. Would definitely recommend as a must do in Brisbane!
  • Really cute little park. Big cues on weekends but lovely, animals look happy. Displays are good! Recommend. Not a full day out but its easily done in a few few hours
  • Really good value for money. The koalas seem well loved and taken care of. The birds of prey show was awesome! The sheepdogs are brilliant. What a great park!
  • A great place to take the kids. My children love the kangaroo feeding and farm animals - they let you hold a baby chick and feed the sheep and goats. We bought annual passes which is great vale
  • Great place. Lots of Australian animals. There is a bird show, you can feed and cuddle kangaroos. You can watch other animals get fed. Such as the Tasmanian devil or the platypus. You can also cuddle a koala and get at photo.
