Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary located in Brisbane, is officially recognised by the Guinness Book of Records as the world’s first and largest koala sanctuary, boasting over 80 years of experience and over 130 koalas in the Sanctuary.
Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary is devoted to the conservation of Australian Wildlife through education of our unique Australian wildlife. In order to do this, the best way to learn is to get up close and personal with the Australian Wildlife.
As the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary is conveniently located alongside the Brisbane River and only a short distance from the city, access to the sanctuary is easy. Make use of the free car park and drive there in one of our many quality hire cars from our Brisbane car rental range.
Why not cuddle a koala, handfeed some kangaroos and discover a huge range of Australian animals, all set in beautiful, natural looking habitat enclosures.
Kangaroos and wallabies feel very much at home in the Sanctuary, with 50 acres of open land to wander and they enjoy all the attention and hand-feeding from visitors.
There are also many stunning Australian Parrots and Cockatoos to be found, as well as many other Australian birds, including Kookaburras, Emus, Cassowaries and many more. Free flying Lorikeets come to the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary on a daily basis for the specially prepared nectar meals.
See the majestic eagles fly and soar high in the sky at the birds of prey flight show. The experienced wildlife handlers hold the show twice ever day and also allow you to get a photo taken holding one of the incredible birds at the end of the show.
The Sanctuary has a natural and unspoilt bushland feel about it, but make sure you wear suitable footwear as you will find yourself dodging kangaroo and emu poop on occasions.
Daily presentations include the sheep dog and birds of prey shows, as well as informative snake, wombat and lorikeet feedings, all of which are informative and entertaining friendly.
Before you leave for the day, why not indulge in a tasty snack at the Koala Forest Café or even take along a picnic and have BBQ by the scenic Brisbane River.
Forget the costly, over-commercialized, overrun theme parks. Take a trip to the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary for an unforgettable up-close and personal look at the Australian wildlife.
