Another great tour. Shame about the weather. Very wet on the day but luckily we had enough time to get round the sanctuary before the real heavy rain hit. The sanctuary not only has koalas, but emus and kangaroos too which you can walk amongst and feed if you wish. They are very used to people. Also lots of other native animals and a small reptile collection to view. Very interesting place. Stop offs for views at Mt. coot-tha on the way back. Our bus driver, Bob, was a real character which makes a real difference.
Excellent tour, good informative guide and interesting selection of sights.
driver was great, animal sanctuary was great even in rainy/muddy weather
A sanctuary is always a great way to see the animals as you can interact with them so much more. You go into the kangaroo pen and can hold a koala and have your photo taken. I love animals so that will probably affect my score.
Very efficient tour guide. One of the more special moments of the trip was holding the koala bear at Lone Pine.
A great afternoon! The driver/guide was highly knowledgeable and entertaining. The Koala Sanctuary is not to be missed!
We had a great time on the tour and especially enjoyed the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and made the koala sanctuary time run very efficiently by telling us what the highlights were and making sure we caught all the shows worth seeing. "Cuddling a koala" was definitely a highlight of an entire Australian vacation.
The bus driver was great, and the whole time was very informative. I couldn't fault anything.
The Lone Pine was a very fun experience. We got to hold the koalas and they had a nice size kangaroo area. Mt. Coot-tha lookout had great views of the area. It was a nice afternoon tour of the area.
It was a very simple tour. The highlight was holding a Koala and it was cheaper than I thought it would cost to hold one.
Loved the view of the city from "One Tree Hill" and the Koala sanctuary was fantastic, I only wish there was a little more to the city portion of the tour.
This tour is worth taking. The driver was very informative. The Koala Sanctuary was excellent.
We were worried about calling the day before our tour to confirm, as we were in Sydney and did have phone service, but luckily there was a pay phone and your toll-free number at the airport! Our tour guide/driver was great as was the entire tour. Thank you! Mr and Mrs Curtis, California USA
It was my second time on this tour and I note the emphasis is on the Lone Pine visit. I would have preferred more descriptives on the city buildings etc. Apart from that I would certainly recommend as a "must do" in Brisbane.
I only had a few hours to spare whilst in Brisbane so this tour was ideal. I got to hold a Koala for a small fee and have a photograph to prove it! I also had the opportunity to see and hand feed Kangaroos and other Australian wildlife. The views from the mountain were wonderful! A great little trip with a friendly and helpful guide. One for all ages.
This was a great way to see Brisbane and see the animals. It was a great tour. Our driver told us lots of neat facts about Brisbane.
The Sanctuary has more Koalas than I have every seen in my entire life. There are a few other animals at the sanitary, including a kangaroo and emu walk in habitat. I wouldn't spend more than 2 hours at the sanctuary. Mt Coot-tha has a great lookout point but you spend only 5 to 10 minutes there. If you have the time, I suggest taking a train and spending an entire day at the Australia Zoo, home of the Crocodile Hunter, that has a huge variety of animal habitats, walk-in habitats, animal shows and the opportunity to hold a dozen different animals.
The Lone Pine Sanctuary really is the best place to cuddle with a Koala. But you can still go to the sanctuary without this tour. It may be best to do a full day tour so that you can stop in other places in Brisbane along with the Sanctuary.
We had an excellent time. The Koala Sanctuary was a must see! You were able to see Koalas up close and unlike most zoos, the Koalas were actually awake and moving about. We also fed Kangaroos and Emus. Our driver was very friendly. The only con was the trip was a bit pricey for not having included the picture holding the Koala. If I were to do it again, I would have just found transportation to the Koala Sanctuary. We only spent 10mins at Mt Coot-tha, so it really wasn't worth spending the extra money for.
