Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary

Visit the largest koala sanctuary in the world to hug a koala, feed the kangaroos or watch a bird of prey show at this beautiful natural wildlife park.

Lone Pine houses over 130 koalas along with other indigenous Australian animals such as kangaroos, Tasmanian devils, wombats, reptiles, dingoes and even a platypus.

Not only is Lone Pine the world's first koala sanctuary, it is one of the very few parks where, for a small fee, you can get up close and cuddle a koala. This is a truly rare experience and one you should definitely try to fit into your Brisbane schedule. The sanctuary is highly regulated – each individual koala must not be held for more than 30 minutes a day. However, with over 130 of the cute little creatures, there are plenty of hugs to go around. Pre-order a professional photograph in the gift shop and take the memory of this unique experience home with you, or simply observe these fluffy docile animals in their natural habitat as they graze on eucalyptus leaves, laze around on branches or tumble about with each other in play.

Lone Pine ensures a fun-filled, relaxing day for all the family. Pick up some animal feed in the gift shop and feed the kangaroos and wallabies, or catch one of the unmissable birds of prey shows in which several species of raptor demonstrate their speed, agility, and hunting prowess. Bring a picnic and make a day of it.

Head over to the purpose-built swimming pond where the platypus lives, visit the Tasmanian devils, or hold a python if you're brave enough! Then catch the impressive sheep dog demonstration over at the Nature Kingdom show area, where friendly and knowledgeable staff are on stand-by to answer any of your questions or queries.

Approximately 13 kilometres from Brisbane city centre, the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary can be found in the suburb of Fig Tree Pocket. Access to the wildlife park is simple with free car parking and plentiful public transport available. Another option is to hop on the ferry, which takes you down the Brisbane River directly to the sanctuary. There is a café and gift shop on site and Lone Pine is open every day apart from major public holidays.
