Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary was established in 1927 with only 2 koalas; now with over 130 of these cuddly creatures as well as a variety of Aussie wildlife, it holds the Guinness World Record for the first and largest koala sanctuary in the World.
It is perfect for animal encounters. Affordable and only a 10 minute drive from Essence Suites Taringa
Cuddle a koala, pet a dingo and feed kangaroos. It’s a great day out for everyone and improves every time we go!
This is a really great nature experience. You can catch a bus there or its about a 15 minute drive away. Hold a koala for a photo opportunity, hand feed lorikeets, watch the birds of prey show (where eagles swoop in and land on the handler), watch a working sheep dog round up sheep, and see a sheeps…
Home to 130 koalas and many other native animals, a visit to Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary is not to be missed. You will have the opportunity to cuddle a koala and feed the kangaroos by hand!
Great day out, especially if you enjoy meeting some new furry friends and some of Australia’s native animals. Pack some water and your own food if you are not a big fan of deep fried fish&chips or sandwiches~

Rich in cultural history, South Bank’s Parklands saw their first glimpse of promise in its post-industrial-period when World Expo 88 opened the area up for public visitation. Enjoyed by so many and seen as a valuable public space to Brisbane after Expo, South Bank’s Parklands were redeveloped for public enjoyment, and that lush inner-city oasis is still enjoyed by the public today.”
