This was a great place to visit with lots of animals to see and feed especially the kangaroos and plenty of koalas - so cute and cuddly. Great place for family and children.

Lots of fun free shows, cheap kangaroo feeds, koalas and other animals look well-cared for (ethical practice). Definitely a must-take day trip from Brisbane!

We have made many visits to Lone Pine Sanctuary over the past 5 Years. Our experience has always been positive and Children always are enthusiastic to visit and keen to see the animals. A highlight is patting the kangaroos and the platypus enclosure. Worth a visit for families with small kids!

Perfect sized sanctuary for walking around, Heaps of koalas and other animals to see and pet! Located in a quiet neighbourhood with lots of parking and only 20 min drive from the city centre. Staff was very friendly and helpful, the animals seemed to be well taken care of. The photos you get with the koalas cost $16 dollars extra... More

The park offers a unique opportunity to see Australian wildlife at close range, with focus on the koala bear! Definitely worth a visit!

What a lovely place to visit. Friendly staff hands on with the animals but only if they want. Kangaroos have a place to go away from people if they want great area to sit and relax. Great for children
