Great to see all the animals and to hold a koala and have our photo with it. Don't go on a rainy day as not alot of shelter. Gift shop very small which was a shame. You could go and feed kangaroos..... more

Visited Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary today with family. Booking online was straightforward and staff were friendly and informative. My son held a Koala and had his photo taken which was a memorable experience. It’s a fabulous place with lots of interesting species to see and learn about. Being from the UK, we don’t get to see and appreciate these beautiful creatures where we live so it was a real privilege to spend time with them. We walked amongst the kangaroos and wallabies and were able to feed them. The animals are obviously very well looked after and the sanctuary is nicely landscaped. If you’re in the area then definitely worth a visit. A wonderful day out had by all thanks!
Took the All-Star tour today at Lone Pine Koala sanctuary and it was exceptional! Our guide and Zookeeper Nick was both knowledgeable and friendly and made this tour one of a kind! We were able to handle owls like a falconer, see hundreds of Koalas and pet them and later get our picture holding them. We also were able to hold a few of the reptiles and feed kangaroos out of our hands. We topped the tour off by feeding the two platypus at the sanctuary. What a morning!! Highly recommended!
Annual membership makes visits to Lone Pine a regular occurrence when babysitting youngest grandchild. We often pop in for a 'quick ' visit to the dingoes, a wander past the crocodiles, a quiet time with the platypus and snakes and a cheery wave to other animals including the famous koalas. We turn up at anytime during opening hours and have never been disappointed. Staff are always friendly and encouraging to our little naturalist.❤️🙂
Magic! We can touch 🐨 it was a dream thank you !!
Great place to checkout a lot of wildlife! They've got a good a lot of different animals here, like koalas, kangaroos, dingos, wombats and more. They had a few free shows like the sheepdog show, some bird shows and others, which were quite interesting. There is also a koala hold photo session for some extra bucks, but make sure to book it before hand cause they could get sold out fast. All in all definitely a must visit while at Brisbane! Highly recommended!! Very friendly staff as well!
