If you love animals, especially Aussie ones like kangaroos and koalas, then this is a must see destination. Here you get to be literally hands on with the animals and walk among them which is really cool especially for the kids. Whereas other zoos don't give you an up close experience with animals, this attraction on the other hand wants... More

We didn't expect a great deal from the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary - from the information we had before our visit, it seemed like it was a small animal park that would take up a couple of hours, and we would be comfortably able to get the same boat back that we came on. As it was, we spent around... More

We just loved this place. We could have spent two or three days there. My husband and I were there with our son and his wife and all of us did the koala experience. It was wonderful. The park is very protective and when one of them gets restless with being held so much, they put him back and get... More

This is not a zoo, but a sanctuary where you can get close with koalas and kangaroos, and a few other animals. It's 20 Australian dollars extra to hold a koala and well worth it! You get a photo with that, and time for your family to photograph you as well. They are sooo cute!! The kangaroos are tame, so... More

This is the perfect spot if you want to see koalas and kangaroos. Nice drive and close to city and not too expensive

Lone pine is a beautiful sanctuary filled with kangaroos and birds. it's easy to get there by train from Brisbane. But I'd say if you have time, go instead to the Australian Zoo it is far better

I took my grandchildren to Lone Pine Sanctuary. It was great for the children to be able to interact with the kangaroos and get up close to them. The shows were also great to watch. Good value for money.

Much better than your average tourist attraction. It cost $70 for two people for entrance but if you do want to hold a koala then it's an extra $20 per person (worth it). You get up close to the Kangaroos and the koalas and can see duckbill platypus, dingoes, Tasmanian devils and possums. We went to see a sheep dog... More

Great place to spend a few hours with the kids. Tame kangaroos and wallabies. I sat for hours petting them. Koalas everywhere.

Visited Lone Pine with 11yr old 2 year old and 1 year old. Lots of fun and a lit to keep the kids entertained. Animal exhibits were great and no disappointments. Fun for the kids to feed kangaroos and emus. A great little wildlife centre close to Brisbane and ticket prices are reasonable. Make sure you bring mozzie repellant as... More
