Lone pine was so good, with all the local wildlife you want to see when you go to oz. You can cuddle a koala which was amazing (they are really heavy) ... they have a field where Kangaroos are roaming free where you can feed them -if its hot they tend to stick to the sleeping area but you will...

In the sanctuary not only you'll have the opportunity to shoot yourself with one, but also shoot many, Very close. Also most of the australians animals, including kangaroos which can be fed on their... More

If you are a visitor to Australia, you must come here to get your photo taken with a koala. It's one of the only places in the world you can do so. But Lone Pine is so much more - it's an amazing little zoo with all of the cool Aussie animals, and huge lizards that run around at your... More

Very nice & easy to get around. For the size of the park they have a lot of animals. Only downside is having to cue in the shop to pay for photos with the koalas & then having to cue again to have your picture taken. One be nice just to cue once.
