Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, Brisbane Reviews
I visited the Koala Sanctuary in Dec. 1968 when I was on R&R from Vietnam. I was very impressed how clean the sanctuary was. I got to hold a koala bear which snuggled up in my arms. I even had a chance to feed "lollies" to the kangaroos. I took 2 reels of movie film which included 2 kangaroos "dooking it out". I also took movies of beautiful birds at feeding time at 4:00 p.m. Before feeding time, they looked like beautiful flowers in the trees. If I ever had the chance to visit there again, I'd grab the first plane to Brisbane. It is worth seeing.
I definitely want to come back. It’s a great place for kids and animal lovers. The animals appeared very happy, well cared for, and loved. The staff in particular were knowledgeable and helpful with any questions my group or I had.any of the animals walked around the park freely like wild birds and lizards. It’s a short drive or bus ride from the center of town. While the price of a photo with a koala was steep, I did feel it was fair and there were plenty of free opportunities to take photos with various animals all from Australia. I will 100% be coming back in future trips.
Beautiful park... Enjoy nature and outdoors. Great you can see some animals. Here you can see many kinds of native Australian animals. There are koalas, Fox bats, possums, many especies of birds. There is a section where you can feed kangaroos or emus and they are so calm and beautiful. The most impressive animal, so far, is the cassowary. They are such magnificent gigantic birds. The look very impressive. There are also presentations about sheep dogs, koalas and birds. Staff is nice and friendly. The best season to go is in winter.
Great place to see LOTS of koalas. This rescue sanctuary has about 100 koalas in multiple locations - more than I was expecting. You can book in to cuddle a koala (sign up early) or just take a photo petting one. You can feed and pet kangaroos in an open area. It's a great photo op! Perfect place to take visitors! There are assorted other animals on display, most are native to Australia and NZ. We really enjoyed seeing the animals, but found the keep talks very brief (5-8min) and short on info.
Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary is a great place to see some Australian native animals. It's close to the middle of Brisbane - only a 20 minute drive or so. While the place does have a lot of koalas, there's also a free-range kangaroo area where you can feed them. There's also a good range of native lizards and birds as well. While Australia Zoo might be bigger and have a lot more to see, it's also a full day trip to properly appreciate it. Lone Pine can be done in a morning or afternoon - easier for families with little kids.
