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.
Very enjoyable and included a truly up close view of the koalas and kangaroos.
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.
Had a great day. Enjoyed holding a koala and feeding the kangaroos.
This is an excellent tour ! The boat trip to the sanctuary shows some of Brisbane's history. The Miramar is a lovely boat. The crew is very helpful, and provides home cooked food for anyone who wants it. The Sanctuary is well,organized, offers a variety of animal shows, and is an excellent place to cuddle a koala !
Highly recommend. Good price and great day out and the Koala's are just the cutest thing ever!!
Our second time at Lone Pine, this time showing it off to our son and partner. Had a great time especially hand feeding the Kangeroos. Great variety of wildlife with keepers that obviously have a passion for their work. We took the boat from the city, good fun too.
Highly recommended to all
Great day, haven't felt so relaxed for some time... Just good to spend quality time with the family. Oh, the boat trip enjoyed a lot, kids even got to steer the ship!!
The river cruise to the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary was very scenic. In the Koala Sanctuary, we were able to be near the Kangaroo and Koala.
Highly recommended. Brilliant boat trip to the sanctuary with great on-board commentary. Plenty of time to see everything at the sanctuary before the relaxing trip back into the city. The sanctuary has many koalas and for an additional fee you can be photographed holding one. Food is available to feed the kangaroos
The trip was great: crew on the boat very friendly. Cruising down (or up?) the river. seeing Brisbane from all sides, going under all the bridges and listening to the very informative playback with hilarious one-liners were all interesting and funny. The Sanctuary itself was amazing: just a note - you have to climb about 3 very steep stair sections to get from the boat to the Sanctuary - not for disabled people. Being from South Africa, I don't like to see animals in cages especially birds and animals that were born to hunt like he dingoes BUT the people at the Sanctuary does a great job in trying to rescue the injured animals, heal them and set them back into the wild - that I like! It is nice walking around with dingoes on leashes next to you, getting up close with the koala's, the emu's and feeding the kangaroos. The wombats and Tasmanian Devils were sleeping but I saw them, the echidna was hiding but the platypus was swimming his heart out. The Sanctuary is clean but you still have that 'jungle' feeling as the natural habitat wasn't touched. I would have liked another hour at the Sanctuary - didn't get to the crocodiles! But the boat left at 13:45. The personnel at the Sanctuary are very friendly, helpful and informative. And leaving the Sanctuary there is a sign that sums it up: the Earth is not only for humans. Amen! Trip back on the boat was great, listening to Australian and Irish music. A very enjoyable day! And Viator's prices are really worth the booking. I saw what 2 people paid without a Viator voucher!
Worthwhile experience. Very nice cruise on the Brisbane River and a pleasant facility to see the animals.
Even though it rained part of the day, the river boat ride was wonderful and Lone Pine was spectacular, better than the other two wildlife areas we visited in Australia. We got to be in an open field with dozens of roaming kangaroos and emus. There were a lot of koalas and you could get right up close to them for some great photos. We even got to pet a dingo! The grounds were lush and beautiful and staff were super friendly!
So so worth it! This was one of the highlights of my Australia trip. The river cruise was breathtaking and interacting with the animals at Lone Pine was so much fun. Highly recommend.
This tour was amazing - combining a boat trip along the beautiful Brisbane river with the opportunity to obtain a deeper understanding of the lives of the koalas as well as feeding kangaroos and more. First time I actually got to see koalas eating, take care of their children and chilling in the retirement home :)
