Had a great day at Lone Pine seeing the koalas and many more animals. The Koala Cafe was a great place to eat our lunch right alongside the koalas hanging out in their trees. They are adorable! We spent the money to get photos holding...More

Took my three young nephews and they had a ball patting and feeding the kangaroos, and were able to have their photo taken with a koala. It was my second visit and I will be back again, I just love it, especially the talking cockatoos.

Excellent place to be if you have kids. That's because they will practically spent the whole day feeding and touching the kangaroos in a big open field. You don't have to do much running around or supervision. Brisbane is also very cool in winter (June...More

We took the 430 bus and it took us into and picked us up at Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary. It was a great time at the Sanctuary. It's worth the time and cost. I didn't realize how close I would be to the Koala's and...More

Lovely activity, if you want to safe on the entrance, book at the Tourist Center and go with public transportation, the bus stops right in front. Very well done, interesting presentations from the animals keeper during the day. Well worth going there.

I visited Brisbane in October 2016 - this was my third visit to Lone Pine in my lifetime & I still enjoyed it after all these years. It doesn't have a zoo vibe which I prefer. I was lucky enough to get my photo with...More

Don't expect a zoo full of animals but if you want to see lots of native Australian animals in a very relaxed environment, this is the place. Not cheap (typical zoo costs) but there is not a lot like this in Brisbane.

We absolutely loved the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary. I was amazed at how close you can get to the emus and the koalas, truly incredible. Worth every cent and I would highly recommend anyone visiting Brisbane to stop by and check it out!

Is it difficult to get to your Sanctuary from a hotel near the airport? What is the best way to do that? How long will it take? I would be there Wednesday, Oct. 11th.

Not sure what the best or less expensive options may be directly from the airport area, however, we just hired an Uber driver from South Bank/Gallery of Modern Art area and it was only about AU$25 each way for 4 of us - fast... More
Do you need to book in advance to hold a koala bear or just arrive on the day as I don't want to be disappointed if it's to busy and don't get to hold one
