Make your own way to Brisbane’s Southbank district to board your boat. View the city’s skyscrapers, leafy suburbs and waterside mansions pass by as your captain provides informative commentary about the sights.
After approximately one hour, arrive at Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary and enjoy about 3 hours to explore on your own.
More than 130 koala bears reside at Lone Pine — the world’s largest koala sanctuary. Plus, you'll have the chance to visit the Platypus House to observe the elusive platypus.
The Birds of Prey show features owls, kites and sea eagles, and colorful wild lorikeets fly in for feedings. Keep an eye out for Eastern Water Dragons — a lizard that grows up to 3 feet (90cm) long. Admire the working dogs at the sheepdog show as they round up sheep while responding to their master’s whistles, calls and hand signals.
Meals are available for purchase on the river cruise and at the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary's cafe (own expense). After discovering Lone Pine, return to your boat for the cruise back to Southbank where your tour ends.
