Great experience, highly recommend. Only criticism the experience was meant to be pram friendly and when we arrived at the park there is a large hill with lots of steps we had to carry our pram / toddler up.

We had perfect weather for our cruise upriver. What an amazing feeling to be able to hold a beautiful koala and purchase a photo for an everlasting memory. The free flight raptor show was spectacular with magnificent birds zooming over the top of our heads.

Brisbane City Highlights with Lone Pine!
We thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Tania. We had a private tour since the van that held l12 had no other passengers. Much more economical than booking with Oceania for the same trip. Would highly recommend.

We did the River/Lone Pine tour which is a must. The staff on the boat are amazing and the commentary is hilarious.. The park itself is well done and clean, would highly recommend paying the $25 to hold the koala but they do offer a photo op for free which we did both😃 Such an awesome day

Fantastic time viewing the animals etc. Very good interaction with crew who work there. Staff very informative to questions. Bit of a downside unfortunately is maybe a few more rubbish collection points and letting the public know when and if the food place is open. All in all if possible would return

When to Get There

The Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary is open daily, year-round. Given its busy daily schedule of talks and events, it’s best to plan your day in advance. High temperatures and large crowds mean you may need to allow more time when visiting in summer, but that’s when seasonal events and demonstrations are more frequent.
