Loved the cruise, great crew, and beautiful to see the city and houses along the river. The sanctuary was great, not too big and thought the time there was just right. Highly recommended!
This was a great tour and we enjoyed seeing all the wildlife that Lone Pine has to offer.
Very nice boat trip with commentary along the river serving very nice snacks/lunch.
Highly recommend this tour!!
Had a great time. The crew were very nice and helped my wife with her mobility scooter we needed to bring to get around the Koala Sanctuary.
Excellent river trip to the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, with the Sanctuary well run and fully accessible.
Well worth the time and money, and easily booked on line.
This tour was the highlight of our three day visit to Melbourne. Lone Pine is a very special place and a great introduction to Australia's indigenous animals. My wife did get to cuddle a Koala and we got to pet Kangaroos, Wallabies, and a Dingo. This is a must do for first timers Down Under.
This tour was great. The trip down the river was smooth and the commentary on the way was informative. The sanctuary was great. Lots to see and the staff were excellent. I'd recommend this trip to anyone who wants a close encounter with a Koala or a Kangaroo.. Brilliant!
This was SO much fun, even though I screwed up the departure time my own fault and missed the boat by ten minutes! No matter we caught a cab and arrived at the Koala Sanctuary before the boat, anyway. We connected with them there, and thoroughly enjoyed both the sanctuary and the return boat trip back to the dock downtown. I had a friend visiting from Bombay, and she said this was one of the highlights of her trip to Australia, as well!
Very nice but needed 3 hours at Lone Pine as did not get to see everything in 2.5hrs
Great tour. The boat trip was relaxing and informative. We loved Lone Pine and have already recommended to our relatives who were also traveling in Australia. They loved it too. Great opportunity to hold a Koala and hand feed lots of Roos! Photos are an addtional cost but worth it. After they take a picture, they will also use your camera and snap a couple more Highly recomnended.

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.
A very pleasant trip to Lone Pine. The crew were very helpful and a respectful of all of their passengers. At Lone Pine the staff were good and helpful in so many ways
Nice boat ride. I will highly recommend Lone Pine Koala Santuary.
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.
We rode a ferry boat to Lone Pine Koala sanctuary. It was a great tour! The raptor show was amazing.
Nice leisurely sail excellent friendly crew, loved the Koala sanctuary and the staff are so friendly. Well worth doing.
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.
