This popular cruise has been taking locals and visitors to the park for over 60 years and is a "must do" experience during your stay in Brisbane.  You’ll board your boat in Brisbane’s Southbank district and leave the city behind on a relaxing cruise to Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary.  Enjoy an informative commentary from your captain as you glide along Brisbane’s waterfront, passing from the bustle of the city’s skyscrapers to leafy suburbs with waterside mansions.  Explore the world’s largest koala sanctuary, with more than 130 Koalas on site.  Cuddle a koala, take photos with the adorable marsupials (own expense), and perhaps catch a talk by the koala’s keepers.  Discover the Platypus House where you may get a chance to see the shy platypus  Check out owls, kites and sea eagles soar above you at the popular Birds of Prey show.  Relax on our ultra-modern cruise boat and indulge in homemade meals and snacks or enjoy a glass of our Australian wine or beer from our on-board cafe.

“River and Koalas - Great day trip in Brisbane”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 May 2012

The whole family had a great time when we took a trip to the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary. We loved the Mirimar cruise up the river, especially the views including both the nature scenery as well as all of the great houses you get to see.

“You get to cuddle a koala!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 May 2012

This trip along the Brisbane River is interesting and gives some great views of the city and its surrounds. The visit to Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary was well worth the visit and the rangers are very well informed and helpful. You must succumb and ahve your photo taken cuddling or being cuddled by a koala! I enjoyed the return trip in the afternoon and found it very relaxing. This is a great day out for all ages.

“An excellent trip.”

It's not Sydney a harbour, however this is a great way to kill some time in Brisbane. Lone Pine is fun and just take in the view.

“A great way to see the river”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 April 2012

The cruise takes you to Lone Pine Sanctuary along the Brisbane river. There is an excellent commentary that gives you some interesting facts on Brisbane and it's history. It takes just over an hour. The boat is comfortable with restrooms and a small kiosk selling food. A great way to see the river and get to the koala park. Two hours at the park is plenty of time to see everything.
