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.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

More like a petting zoo...ok for families with little kids- a bit boring after being there an hour, just waited around until it was time to leave- Not one of my favorites.
