Tour Details

Your tour begins with a river cruise that is a memorable journey on the Brisbane River as you head to the world renowned Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary. 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 will cruise through Brisbane's most historic landscapes, iconic attractions, historical home sites, and interesting wildlife habitats as you listen to an entertaining and informative commentary.

Then enjoy 2 hours and 30 minutes exploring the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, the world's first and largest koala sanctuary. You will have the opportunity to meet over 130 koalas, hand feed kangaroos, experience an Australian sheep dog and sheep shearing show, spy on a shy platypus swimming and see the amazing birds of prey show. You can even cuddle a koala (for an additional cost) and have your picture taken!

5 StarsEnjoyed but timing issuesJuly 22, 2017

Reviewer: pamela d hammer
island it was magnificent no issues loved the animals beautiful problem is Excursion time ending at 3:30 with last shuttle to ship 3:45-missed it took taxi. the taxi took us to wrong port even though we gave them the correct pier address and location he said this is where all the ships go I said that's not our ship we dont have a water slide on our ship ours was the sun princess oh well then you must be across the bridge reminded him the dock address i had given we got to our ship $75 later I think we need to make sure when we have these types of excursions we have the time to get back to the shulttle. took 45 minutes for the shuttle to get us to town with15 - 20 min walk it was going down the street as we climbed the steps to the stop. At the ship they were still unloading the shuttle when we arrived and we were detoured because of the last because of the driver of the taxi so timing is an issue with making sure to get back to the ship timely so we're not left behind

We were very happy with this excursion. It was well organized and managed. It was equal to the cruise excursion for over half the price. A good value for the price. I highly recommend this trip. We had plenty of time to return to the ship and saw more on the river cruise then you would see on the bus.

Ok-I knew I would "enjoy" the sanctuary, but once I held my first Koala and he looked at me..well,I was in LOVE with a Koala. This place is the best-they save animals and give them so much love-Please put this place as your number ONE visit spot!
