Thinking of visiting Koala bear santuary in Brisbane? The No.1 name would be The Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary. I had visited twice with my family and kids love this place.
Driving out the Brisbane city heading to Lone Pine itself would be an interesting journey....scenic and you are able to appreciate the Australian forest reserve along the way up the hill.
There are many koala bear in the sanctuary, mostly sleeping on the trees, and you can pay for the photo taking with koala bear.
Surprises and the most interesting part of the visit:
you can buy kangaroo food, feeding and playing with many kangaroos in the gated area. These kangaroos are all very friendly, you can touch, play with them and of course....taking photos with these kangaroos just next to you.
On top of these, there are many other animals kept in the sanctuary, and there are many animal shows daily.
Recommended Trip: 2-4 hours visit would be good.

Thank you for your 5-star review. It is wonderful hearing from returning visitors and we are thrilled that you and your family had a great day. With around 130 koalas we agree that Lone Pine is a great place to observe and interact with these beautiful marsupials. Our 5-hectare free-range reserve is another great spot to relax and get up close and personal with our roos, wallabies and emus. We look forward to your next visit.

We loved our afternoon at this lovely little zoo. The number of koalas was awesome especially the "nursery". I had never seen koalas jump between trees before. Well worth the short drive out there from the CBD.

Thank you for your wonderful 5-star review, we are thrilled to hear that you enjoyed you visit and were able to observe our adorable joey koalas. It is amazing to see koalas jump from tree to tree, not many people are aware of their jumping abilities.

It has been a number of years since I visited Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, as my last visit was very sad and disappointing. The animal enclosures were in need of work. Dirt only in enclosures nothing to stimulate, little more than a large cage.
Revisited last week and surprised to see many improvements in the conditions for the animals and didn't feel like fleeing with sadness.

For the family I was really delighted to see the food on offer was not your usual pie and chips, but fruit salad cups freshly made sandwiches and even Bar B Q sausages partnered with onions.......and surprise surprise the prices were reasonable. Well done Lone Pine!

The family can be entertained for a full day watching the sheep dogs or learning about birds of prey and to top it off a live demonstration of sheering which kept the 2 to 9 years enthralled. Small kangaroos were in a separate enclosure and not interested in the kangaroo food that could be purchased but delighted the young ones by hopping all over the paddock to escape the food continually being offered. The next paddock housed the large kangaroos which can be a little dangerous if you are small but perfect for the adult to get an up close look.

If u have visitors from overseas, this is the perfect opportunity to showcase the amazing and wonderfully unique animals that we have in Australia! If you are a local, you will want to buy a season pass!! Lone Pine offers a range of shows from Koalas, birds of prey and my favourite - the sheepdog and sheep shearing display.

Lone Pine is set in a way that you can see everything as fast or slow paced as u want. The grounds are clean and well presented. You can even feed the kangaroos in an open area! The staff are very friendly, helpful and informative. You can go to enjoy but you will also learn.

The parking is free and the food, drinks and souvenirs are quite reasonably priced for a tourist attraction. Go to Lone Pine, you won't be disappointed!

This beautiful koala sanctuary is always a favourite for locals and tourists alike. It's closer than Australia Zoo and focuses more on the approachable Australian animals. It's a great place to come and get photos with koalas, kangaroos and emus. The yearly pass isn't too much more expensive so if you have a small family, it may be worthwhile investing the money in an annual pass. That way you can always have fun trips for the kids when the weekends seem boring
