The trip was excellent. I enjoyed the boat ride to lone pine and enjoyed the displays at lone pine. The staff were all friendly and helpful. The only down point was a notice that said maximum number of persons on this deck 28 and I counted 45. The boat felt safe as the water was calm.
It was a very good experience. The animals are in very good codition . The cruise to the sanctuary is relaxing.
Out of the four different wildlife parks that I visited, the Lone Pine Koala Sancturary was the best. The boat ride to and from the park is nice with good views of Brisbane.
Yes, I really got to hold a Koala at this zoo. It is important to note that holding or even touching a Koala is not legal throughout the country so take advantage of the opportunity when visiting this sanctuary. I love my photo holding the Koala, for me this was a once in a lifetime event! Also note, that there is a large area where one can walk around amongst the Kangaroo, though wild they are not aggressive and are not afraid or agitated by the tourists. Also, before you enter this area stop by the gift shop and by some food to hand feed them, you cannot by food inside the area it is simply not available - they ate right out of our hands and where okay with allowing you to touch them or scratch their heads. For me this was a once in a lifetime event and am happy I went there.
We enjoyed the commentary during the trip up the river and back. The Koala Sanctuary was very interesting and we saw lots of animals. The only drawback was that most of the koalas were fast asleep . . . but that's what koalas do, isn't it?
Absolutely wonderful trip. Even though it rained the cruise and the Sanctuary were just brilliant.
