Loved this trip! A great combination of the river cruise and visit to the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, we were given an informative talk on way on the boat pointing out things of interest etc. There was enough time to see everything at the Sanctuary and feeding the kangaroos was a highlight as well as getting up close to the koalas, we didn't have a photo with the koalas and would suggest if you do want a pic to join the queue as soon as you get of the boat as this is very popular. We would recommend this trip 100.
Excellent tour to Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary - there was plenty of space on board and we enjoyed the cruise up the Brisbane river to the sanctuary on a hot day.
The sanctuary was excellent with the opportunity to see Koalas, Kangaroos, Platypus and Dingos up close. A lovely relaxing trip!
A great way to see more of Brisbane from the water and get close to australian animals! Friendly staff, digital tourguide for the cruise and you can buy drinks as the boatride can get very hot. Really recommend to book this tour online to skip the line to climb aboard the boat. Deckchairs and some stairs to climb on the boat. It was also possible to sit indoors at tables. When you arrive at the sanctuary there is a climb/stairs so if you have trouble walking it will be tough. The only thing is that did not work out for us during our trip was tickets for holding a koala. There was no chance at all to get tickets by the time you get to the sanctuary. What we understood was that you had to buy tickets really early in the morning on site. The park itself was nice and you get really close to koalas and kangaroos.
EXCELLENT!!!!! If you're thinking this will be something you'd like... just book!!! you won't be disappointed. Plus taking the cruise means you don't have to queue for a ticket at the other end you are taken straight to the entrance by the captain of the boat as well as having a lovely informative cruise along the river and if you're really lucky you may spot a dolphin!!! we were very lucky to have spotted THREE on our way back. A totally amazing day out. BEST DAY OF MY YEAR SO FAR. I'd never seen a Koala before in my life and I got to see so many and up close too, as well as lots of other incredible animals. JUST DO IT! you can pay on the day but I found booking online the most convenient and also guaranteed me a place on the boat. WONDERFUL! :
Great views of Brisbane from the boat and good commentary. Wildlife park was excellent.
Getting to hold a Koala and feed Kangaroos was the highlight of our trip! This was an awesome tour!
Both the cruise up river to the sanctuary and the sanctuary are excellent and you can even get to hold a Koala this trip is well worth the price paid.
Thouroughly enjoyed the river cruise and very interesting commentary. Lone Pine was even better than last time we visited 8 years ago. Could do with more time at the park as we had to rush around to see everything before the boat left to return to the city, but we did manage to see everything.
Id recommend this as it combines two great activities to do in Brisbane. You catch the boat from the Southbank which is very close to the main centre of Brisbane where most of the hotels are, so it is within walking distance. The cruise is done at a nice slow pace with narrated commentary for the whole journey, picking up on Brisbanes landmarks along the river and local history all which is done in an interesting and funny manner. The boat ride is about an hour to get to the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, I had thought that we might not get enough time at the sanctuary but it was just about right as the place isnt that big and you can see all the attractions in a few hours. As well as Koalas there is a large Kangaroo reserve, reptiles, Dingoes, birds, Tasmanian devils, bats and a Platypus! The Koalas are the main attraction and there are loads of them, its worth paying the extra money to get a photograph of you holding one. The cruise back was nice and relaxing and a good opportunity to take try some of the food and drinks on the boats, both are reasonable priced and they have a good range of drinks that are cheaper than at the Sanctuary.
A great way to combine the Brisbane River and Koala Sanctuary.
