  • 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.

  • We had so much fun at the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary. We paid extra to cuddle a koala and get a picture, but they also allow you to take a picture with your own camera after they take the official picture. We bought kangaroo food at the general store and had so much fun feeding the kangaroos. We took lots of pictures with them eating out of hands and took our obligatory kangaroo selfies! There are a lot of shows and keeper talks to attend. We loved the sheep dog show! Free wifi everywhere, and uber was an easy way to get to and from the city. It was about 30 each way, but beat riding a bus for an hour. We forgot to bring our printed vouchers but they let us email them to the sanctuary, and they printed them off for us to sign. I would highly recommend the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary for the kangaroo feeding and koala cuddles!

  • Holding a koala was neat, but feeding the kangaroos -- just hopping around as they please in an open space -- was even better. This is the only thing we did in our 1 day in Brisbane, and I would do it all again.

  • We had a wonderful time at the Sanctuary. It's a great place to see koalas up close and get a photo taken with a koala or python, if you like snakes. You do have to pay an additional fee for the photo, but it's fairly small. You can also feed kangaroos and wallabys. In addition, the sanctuary houses a few different types of birds, a platypus, wombat, a few times of lizards.
