Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary - Attraction

Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary is the world’s first and largest koala sanctuary, home to over 100 koalas and 70 species of other Australian native animals.

Established in 1927, the sanctuary offers guests the opportunity to get up close and personal with the wildlife in a natural, intimate setting. From koala holds to kangaroo feeding, free-flight raptor shows and sheepdog demonstrations, there is something for everyone.

Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary is accredited by the Zoo and Aquarium Association for positive animal welfare. The health and wellbeing of the sanctuary’s animals are at the forefront of everything they do, along with their extensive research and conservation efforts.

Lone Pine is open every day from 9 am-5 pm and just 12 kilometres from Brisbane CBD. The sanctuary can be accessed by car, bus, or Mirimar River Cruise.
