Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary

Zoos, Sanctuaries, Aquariums and Wildlife Parks

Recognised by the Guinness Book of World Records, Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary is the world’s first and largest koala sanctuary, with over 90 years of experience and 130 koalas. In both 2015 and 2018, Lone Pine was inducted into the Trip Advisor Hall of Fame, for consistent ‘excellent’ guest reviews. In 2018, the sanctuary opened the ‘Brisbane Koala Science Institute’; a world-class koala research facility opened in partnership with the Brisbane City Council.

Interact with 100 species of Australian animals, with hands-on experiences and presentations. Hand-feed kangaroos and wild lorikeets, or hold a koala. Lone Pine is also home to two platypus, residing in a AUD1 million exhibit, who will entertain you with their playful antics.

Unwind with a coffee in the ‘Koala Forest’, surrounded by 30 koalas, or catch the action in the Free Flight Raptor Show. You can also enjoy an Australian outback farm experience at the daily Sheepdog Show, performed by experienced and award-winning sheepdog handlers and their loyal dogs.

Free wi-fi is available all throughout the sanctuary, along with three bloggers areas, providing guests with comfortable seating, USB power stations and great sanctuary views.
