The setting is a bit all over the place but still really nice in general good amount of shade...prices are decent as well for entry and love that there is an outdoor aircon next to... More

This is a nice animal sanctuary with many koalas and kangaroos. It is not quite as nice as the Ferndale sanctuary near Sydney, which has a better selection of Australian fauna. Still, it is enjoyable. We had fun taking photos of us with the kangaroos and emus. There also are shows and we saw a raptor show. The line can... More

After a week in Australia we hadn't seen a Koala yet! So we decided to visit a Koala sanctuary. It was great. They not only have Koala's but lots of other animals. Also a fenced area where kangaroo's and emoes running around freely. Lots of lizards and also quite a lot of birds.

if you want to see bulk koalas then this is the place. holding a koala isn't included in the admission so it's an extra $18 but that includes a photo you get to take home. it's not as open for the animals as I'd hope it to be. for instance I've been to other wildlife sanctuarys where it's a big...

A perfect place to visit no matter what your demographic to experience meeting and being up close and personal with iconic Australian animals. Located within Brisbane services by ferry and bus, it is easy to access or to drive to. There is plenty for Families inside and outside the Sanctuary. Special events throughout the year - eg Halloween and Christmas.... More

An interactive day feeding Australia's favourite animals. Feeding the Roos was special. Recommend the Koala Cruise with Mirimar cruises to get you there

Joined the KoalaTransfers private tour to Lone Pine. Well escorted for a full 2 hours inside the sanctuary to see the lovely koalas and all the unique animals of Australia. Holding a Koala in the arm was the sweetest moment for me. Feeding the kangaroos was another great experience. The sheep dog show and falcon performance were also amazing. A... More

This is a great place to see the animals of Australia. Very hands on, you can hold a koala, pet and feed kangaroos. We loved it.
