  • Visited Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary today with family. Booking online was straightforward and staff were friendly and informative. My son held a Koala and had his photo taken which was a memorable experience. It’s a fabulous place with lots of interesting species to see and learn about. Being from the UK, we don’t get to see and appreciate these beautiful creatures where we live so it was a real privilege to spend time with them. We walked amongst the kangaroos and wallabies and were able to feed them. The animals are obviously very well looked after and the sanctuary is nicely landscaped. If you’re in the area then definitely worth a visit. A wonderful day out had by all thanks!
  • Took the All-Star tour today at Lone Pine Koala sanctuary and it was exceptional! Our guide and Zookeeper Nick was both knowledgeable and friendly and made this tour one of a kind! We were able to handle owls like a falconer, see hundreds of Koalas and pet them and later get our picture holding them. We also were able to hold a few of the reptiles and feed kangaroos out of our hands. We topped the tour off by feeding the two platypus at the sanctuary. What a morning!! Highly recommended!
