Traveljunkieindonesia.com – We went to visit the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary in Brisbane and spent 3.5 hours hanging out with koalas, kangaroos and friends and having a FANTASTIC day!
Officially recognised by the Guinnes World Records, Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary is the world’s first and largest koala sanctuary, with over 75 years experience and 130 koalas.
It was absolutely fantastic. Famous for opportunities to get close to Australian wildlife, complete the experience by meeting an assortment of farm animals in the outback farmyard. It is definitely a MUST-VISIT attraction if you are traveling to Queensland with or without children.
I voted it to be the best experience ever! The most popular animal encounter is still the irresistible koala hug. Cuddle one of these cute creatures anytime and ever have your souvenir photo taken.
Oooh you can feed kangaroos and wild lorikeets, encounter birds of prey and hold a snake. You’ll meet a large variety of wildlife including wombats, birds, dingos, emus, Tasmanian devil and more, in beautiful, natural settings.
We arrived at 11.30am and we left at 14.00pm. Yo! we had a lovely lunch and thank you to our super friendly host Cheryl. It was an epic day!
Some tips on how to have a great day:
1) Bring sunglasses, hats and sunscreen.
2) Wear good walking shoes.
3) Buy kangaroo food. You can ‘connect’ with kangaroos here.
4) Bring your own water bottles. There are water fountains everywhere and you can refill your bottles very easily.
Overall, yes, It is a place I will surely revisit. We had so so much fun!
