Koala Sanctuary and Brisbane River Cruise Express

Your tour begins with a scenic river cruise on the Koala Express, which is a memorable journey on the Brisbane River through the city's most historic landscapes as you view iconic attractions and historical homes as you make your way to the world renowned Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary. This popular excursion is always on everyone's "must do" list while in Brisbane.

You will travel in a fast boat that has capacity for only 20 guests, allowing you to arrive at Lone Pine in approximately a quick 40 minutes.

Upon arrival enjoy 2 hours in the park exploring the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, the world's first and largest koala sanctuary. You will have the opportunity to meet over 130 koalas, listen to a snake keeper talk, experience an Australian sheep dog show, spy on a shy platypus swimming and see the amazing free flight raptor show. You can even cuddle a koala (for an additional cost) and have your picture taken!

Once the time has come to make your return to Brisbane, re-board your express boat at 2:00PM and be delivered back in the city at 2:40PM, leaving you enough time to catch the shuttle buses back to the cruise ship pier area.

Don't miss out on this amazing opportunity to experience the wonderful and exciting Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, book today and be confident your seat is reserved as space is limited and will sell out fast!

Great experience
January 21, 2020
This was a fun day. We took an express boat ride to the Koala Sanctuary. The views from the river were stunning. there were a lot of nice homes and properties that we passed along the way. At the sanctuary we got to see many animals. We got to see up close and cuddle a koala. We feed the kangaroos. A great tip from the captain of the boat told us to pour water into our hands as a cup and let the kangaroos drink from our hands. They get so many people to feed them but they get thirsty because the food is dry. We were a hit with all of the kangaroos. They loved it. We also got some great action photos of them drinking from our hands. We got to see a falcon show also. The time allotted was perfect. It was quite a hot day so we had time to rest in the shade. Please allow time for you to get to the pickup point. our cruise docked at 8am and we had an 11am start it was tight but we made it. It took time for the Australian gov't to process us into the country. I highly recommend this tour.
