  • Loved this small zoo! So awesome to be able to be up close to the animals, holding a koala and feeding and petting the kangaroos, wallabies and emus!

  • Great place to visit, this is my first stop from the Brisbane airport.
    Nice place where they have lots of Koala and other animals.
    Taking pictures with the Koala need to pay, which is reasonable.
    And the staffs are nice and friendly, the koala are cube and nice with a unique smell, not smelly lol.
    Worth to visit for sure, go for it early in the morning which your might catch some parrots feeding themselves near the flowery plants near the cafe.

    A must go and carry the Koala.... Enjoy the place....ciao...

  • Lovely sanctuary, animals appear happy and well cared for. Great to be able to cuddle a koala and hand feed kangaroos and wallabies. Highly recommended.

  • Bucket list experience to hold a koala! Lone Pine was a wonderful place, highly recommend. Very enjoyable. The kangaroos were a lot of fun, too!

  • The sanctuary gave me the opportunity to not only hold a koala but also pet a kangaroo! I was able to view native wildlife of Australia.

  • SO glad we decided to stand in line to hold a koala! We found out later that this sanctuary is the only one that lets you physically hold one. It's a great experience!

  • Amazing, don't miss out and GO!!! Spend the extra money to hold a Koala, totally worth it!

  • I spent a lovely half a day at the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary. I'd recommend to take a picture with a koala extra cost. There are koalas everywhere! The kangaroos were sort of lazy when I was there and didn't feel like eating was there shortly after lunch time. I'd suggest to go there first thing in the morning. I was very happy about seeing a platypus. I gave four out of five stars because I feel as some of the animals don't have enough space to move around especially the birds.
