Perfect. However, it would be nice if the company would allow guests to stay longer...even 30 minutes more would be perfect. We felt a bit rushed and were not able to see all the park. If you take time to see at least 1-2 of the shows at the park which I highly recommend, then you will have to give up seeing other things at the park.

The Tour was amazing!!! The River Cruise is a great way to see Brisbane and lear about the city and see where you want to go explore. Perfect tour if you don't know what to do in Brisbane you will leave the tour knowing where you can explore. The boat was very comfortable and had food and drinks available for purchase on board. The Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary was one of the coolest zoo's I have been too. You can see all the wild animals native to Australia up close and personal. You can hold a Koala and you can hand feed Kangaroos!! Make sure you bring your camera because there will be a lot of photo oops with the Kangaroos and other Animals at the Sanctuary.

We had a wonderful day trip to the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary. Our children ages 9 and 11 had so much fun feeding the kangaroos, seeing and holding the Koalas, watching the bird show and the dog show.
The boat ride back and forth was very enjoyable.

The river ride was relaxing and provided excellent views of the city and many of its riverfront neighborhoods. The Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary was rather small but was very nice. The animals appeared to be well tended and happy.

Great Boat Tour with very friendly and accommodating captain and restaurant staff. Very interesting and entertaining information during the trip.
Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary is worth a trip. Most fascinating is the sheep show with a fantastic presenter. All the animals are well kept and presented.
Overall, a trip that can be truly recommended.

Boat Tour was lovely, Koala Cuddles were fun and the Petting and Feeding of Kangaroos were certainly the highlight. While in this beautiful city, carve out some time for a unique and lively time at the Sanctuary.

This is a locally owned and run boat tour. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The commentary is interesting and sets Brisbane out for the visitor to enjoy.
The tour drops off and collects at the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary. my only suggestion for improvement is to have slightly longer to visit the sanctuary - especially with children who really do love seeing the animals.
Great trip would highly recommend and do again should we have the pleasure of coming to Oz in the future!

Our first day in Australia and what a great trip. Sailing up the river was relaxing and loved the koala sanctuary we petted kangaroos and had our picture taken holding a koala. The time we had there was perfect and the boat crew were very informative.

This was the best thing we did whilst in Australia. Loved the whole place from the koalas, wombats and fruitbats to the kangaroos. It was a really interesting place and if we can ever get back to Brisbane we will return. The river cruise was also good with friendly people.

This tour is great, but too short a period at the actual venue. Of the 5hrs, about 3 are spent on the boat. On the day we went, the outbound was delayed by a technical issue, and then we were delayed by speed restrictions on the river, but the return departure time remained the same. We would have liked a lot longer to see everything, and to browse in the shop. But we loved getting close up and personal with the animals, and the staff were knowledgeable. The site was clean and well maintained, and the animals looked well. Holding a koala was a highlight, and we really enjoyed the day. One caution: we went in the off season, so no children and no crowds and the queue for the koala photos wasn't too bad. This wouldn't be the case in high season and school holidays, when I imagine the paths and large pens would get very crowded and it could be difficult to get near the small pens. We were pleased to be able to buy food and drink on the return journey, which we hadn't planned to do, since there had been insufficient time to get anything at the venue, the commentary, sparse on the way out, was non-existent on the way back. But the captain did invite passengers who were interested a turn at steering the boat, which might amuse some. In short, it was a memorable day, but not long enough.

Pleasant boat trip and wonderful introduction to the wonders of the Australian animal kingdom. Loved being able to hold a koala, feed the kangaroos, and watch a platypus under water. Also saw a fun dog herding demonstration.

We found the cruise was so interesting as we had not been to Brisbane before. The staff were so professional and even called a taxi for us at the end of the tour so we could go back to our cruise ship. The sanctuary was so fascinating, we would have liked to stay longer, but we needed to get back to our ship. Well done would recommend it to future visitors.

Well worth the price. Easy to board and the boat was very nice. The history of Brisbane was fascinating on the way to the sanctuary and the animals were amazing! The cultural centre pontoon was centrally located and convenient. The staff went out of their way to be friendly and helpful.
