We had a wonderful day at the Lone Pine Sanctuary and the river cruise was very good with the running commentary. The facilities onboard were great. Tasty food and reasonably priced. Good to book in advance as it worked out cheaper. The sanctuary was excellent and the koalas were a delight. We were so thrilled to see the platypus, it made our day.
LOVED IT! Cruise commentary was very helpful in getting an idea of history of the river area. Seeing koalas and getting to hold one was a lifelong dream for me - though it's a very short time to hold them, it was still fantastic!!! Couldn't believe you could just walk in and wander around to feed kangaroos! Definitely recommend it.
It was very relaxing on the boat and hearing about the history of the Brisbane river was informatif.The Koala park was was good. Overall it was n very good experiance.

I learned some history on the cruise, and there was plenty of time at the sanctuary. The staff were helpful and the food on board was decent. Just the right number of people on board.
nice boat ride around Brisbane...the tour guide explains a lot about Brisbane which is nice....the Sanctuary was excellent...
The parking for the boat is hard to find. We had a van that was to big for the underground parking. Recommend putting parking on the information sheet. The Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary was outstanding.
This was a great way to get to and see the sanctuary. Fun to hear about the history of the area and the sanctuary was everything it was promised to be.
We loved the river cruise - Rob was fantastic. Koala sanctuary was brilliant too.
Absolute must-see if you're going to visit Brisbane. Do not miss out!
Thoroughly enjoyed our boat cruise with interesting commentary and things to see. The sanctuary was excellent too, well organized, maintained, and with a good program of information about the animals.
Really lovely day - awesome crew and awesome experience for all our family from 1 year old to 58 year old!
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.
