Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary

Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary

Have you ever wished to snuggle a koala? You may cross this longtime goal off your bucket list at Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary.

You may also get up up and personal with more than 70 different types of adorable Australian animals. Feed kangaroos by hand, laugh with kookaburras, and witness swarms of rainbow lorikeets descend during a feeding. This little refuge on the Brisbane River is home to wallabies, wombats, dingoes, snakes, and even crocodiles.


Keeper speeches and demonstrations keep visitors interested in the animals. Bird of prey displays, platypus feeding, sheep dog and shearing exhibitions, Tasmanian devil keeper talks, and barn animal interactions are among the daily encounters and experiences. Visiting this well-known Brisbane site is, unsurprisingly, one among the best things to do in Brisbane with the family.


You may even take home a souvenir photograph of yourself with a dingo or snake, in addition to the ultimate hugging a koala photo.


Insider tip: The Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary Admission with Brisbane River Cruise is a popular way to visit. The cruise leaves from the Cultural Centre Pontoon in Brisbane.
