Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary Reviews
We went to cuddle a koala, and got that so much more. This place is only 15 minutes drive outside the Brisbane CBD and is so worth the visit. Get up close and personal with koalas, kangaroos and all o... more »
For those who never had a chance to feed a Kangaroo, you will here! Make sure to plan your trip in a non rainy day as it is all open, pack your hat and sunscreen more »
Gotta love koalas. I got to hold one for the first time! And boy, what an experience! Too bad my photo did not turn out as I expected it to be. The staff were in a hurry to shoot and take the koala off of my grip! But overall I enjoyed every minute of my visit. Very laid-back atmosphere indeed. Not the usual crowded, too-much-to-see and things to do places.
By far the best sanctuary and wildlife place I have been too. They look after their animals and the dog show is great. The lorikeet feeding event at 4pm is a must. I would go here over Australia zoo any day. Please visit these guys and support their efforts. You wont regret it!
