Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary
For that signature Aussie photo of loved ones cuddling furry koalas, head to the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary.
Hundreds of koalas live at Lone Pine, along with wombats, emus, kangaroos and other weird and wonderful Australian animals. Another highlight is the new platypus habitat, along with wallaby and lorikeet feeding sessions.
The koala sanctuary is 11 km (7 miles) south-west of central Brisbane.
You can catch a bus or taxi here, but perhaps the most interesting way to visit is by boat from central Brisbane. The 80-minute cruise follows the meandering Brisbane River.
