Home to koalas, kangaroos, possums, wombats, dingoes, assorted birds, reptiles, amphibians and other unique wildlife, Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary is set in a natural landscape on the edge of the Brisbane River. Officially recognised by the Guinness Book of World Records, it is the world’s first and largest koala sanctuary, boasting 80 years of experience and more than 130 koalas. Famous for opportunities to get close to Australian wildlife, Lone Pine now also offers a slice of Aussie outback farm life with Brisbane’s only sheep dog show. Watch the experienced, award-winning sheep dog handlers and their clever canine companions, and then take a photo with the animal stars after the show! You can also take photos with crocodiles, snakes and birds of prey, and the famous koala cuddle photos are available at any time. Located only 11km from the centre of Brisbane, the sanctuary is easily accessible by bus, car and boat. The Mirimar cruise departs daily from the Cultural Centre and arrives at the entrance to Lone Pine. You will be able to see some of Brisbane’s most beautiful historic buildings as well as Indooroopilly Island, one of Australia’s largest bat colonies.
