Cuddle a Koala at Lone Pine Sanctuary

Many tourists recognise Australia through its incredible wildlife. It’s the uniqueness of our native animals like the koala and kangaroo that Australia to the minds of many. Brisbane is lucky to host one of the world’s largest koala sanctuary’s in the suburb of Fig Tree Pocket, with over 130 koalas.

Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary has been recognised by the Guinness Book of World Records and was awarded the Trip Advisor Hall of Fame for five consecutive years of excellence.

You can interact with 100 species of Australian animals, with hands-on experiences and presentations. Lone Pine also allows visitors to hand-feed kangaroos and wild lorikeets, or get cuddly with their beautiful koalas. If you are looking for something a little different, why not visit their two platypus residents that dwell in a plush exhibit (worth 1 million Australian dollars)? Now that’s living.

Located on the banks of the Brisbane River, you can relax and take in the beautiful surroundings. Free Wifi is accessible all throughout the park. To accommodate for all the photos you will be taking, Lone Pine has installed free wireless phone charging stations for your use and also thoughtfully provided guests with comfortable seating areas to use social media.

To get the most out of your day at Lone Pine, you can also catch the Bird of Prey Free Flight Show or the daily Sheepdog show to excite your senses. Finish your day with an organic coffee in the “Koala Forest” and laze around with the 40 other like-minded koalas.
