So many Koalas! Lots of native Australian animals. Had to feed the kangaroos of course. The boat ride there was pleasent and informational. The staff was nice enough to answer our questions.

Took the All-Star tour today at Lone Pine Koala sanctuary and it was exceptional! Our guide and Zookeeper Nick was both knowledgeable and friendly and made this tour one of a kind! We were able to handle owls like a falconer, see hundreds of Koalas and pet them and later get our picture holding them. We also were able to hold a few of the reptiles and feed kangaroos out of our hands. We topped the tour off by feeding the two platypus at the sanctuary. What a morning!! Highly recommended!
A fantastic place to visit, the boat trip there was fascinating, a history tour of the river. Lone pines was a revelation, I did not know initially if 3 hours would be too long, it was not, there was loads to see and learn. The exhibitions and shows were great, all very well done. Loved to see the animals and to feed the kangaroos was a highlight. Do it, you will not regret it.
Magnificent visit with our 7 month old. We interacted with dozens of kangaroos, just bathing in the sunshine. Definitely worth reserving the koala picture so that you can pet one! The gift shop is reasonably priced and all staff are genuinely interested in your experience. You can even watch dozens of koalas sleep while you eat!!
Absolutely brilliant day out, all the animals are really well looked after. I enjoyed the variety of animals that the sanctuary has to offer and there are loads of koalas. The only disappointment was the Koala experience. We got to hold the koalas for less than 1 minute each when it says 15 minutes on the website. This was extremely frustrating and not good value for money. Apart from this I really enjoyed the sanctuary. There are also 2 cafes, 1 inside and 1 outside which is really convenient.
I spent a fun morning at Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, watching the antics of the animals. The Raptor show was especially thrilling! The rainbow lorikeet feeding was also a colourful spectacle, and the koalas look so cute and cuddly. I didn’t end up getting around to seeing all the exhibits and shows, so I’m glad I bought an annual pass. Great value as I can go back as many times as I like!
