Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, Brisbane Reviews
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.
Came here as an inclusion as part of a city tour of Brisbane. Had two hours here which was time to go around the whole place twice and sample the food in the cafe. Absolutely amazing! Very happy with the enclosures - animal welfare seems to be at the forefront of the staff's ethos here. Lots of places for animals to hide which meant a few weren't visible or you had to look really hard for them but this means they can be as close to life in the wild as possible. Plenty of opportunities for getting a bit closer to the animals with numerous talk and feed times and you could easily spend longer here. The staff we spoke to were very friendly and knowledgeable. Highlight was seeing both duck billed platypus swimming around their enclosures. LOADS of koalas! Quite a few were very active when we were there - between 1.30pm and 3.30pm. Would definitely go again if back over here (on holiday from England!) Would be there all the time if lived closer.
So many lovely koalas! Lots of animals. Great food, toilet facilities and souvenirs for sale. Get your photo taken with the koalas at certain times throughout the day. Can be a long queue for the photos.
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!
This was fun. Lots of koalas if that is what you love, but also other native species. Felt like a true sanctuary with attention to the animals very top notch. Worth the visit.
