Lone Pine is well set out & even on a public holiday didn't seem too crowded. You can feed & pat the kangaroo & have photos taken with koalas. The big fans in the eating area were excellent & kept us cool while we had lunch. I wouldn't recommend getting there by the river cruise on Miramir on a hot... More

Lone Pine is famous with wildlife lovers and for good reason. They have the largest population of resident koalas of any Sanctuary in Australia (and therefor the world). Holding a Kolala is free you pay for the photo, the shearing show is great as is the Birds of Prey with eagles and owls and Hawks etc, in fact all of... More

Great day out. Not many zoo's have a platypus exhibit and they are well worth seeing! Recommend to get there before lunch and have a chance to see a few things and do the shows and the keepers talk in the afternoon. Bird of Prey one was great!

The boat trip to the sanctuary was very good and the sanctuary itself was a one off opportunity to hold a Koala but overall it was a bit of an expensive experience.

Lone pine was so good, with all the local wildlife you want to see when you go to oz. You can cuddle a koala which was amazing (they are really heavy) ... they have a field where Kangaroos are roaming free where you can feed them -if its hot they tend to stick to the sleeping area but you will...

Don't try to stop in any Australia's route, Risking yourself, when you see a koala hanging on a tree and trying to shoot your best shot. In the sanctuary not only you'll have the opportunity to shoot yourself with one, but also shoot many, Very close. Also most of the australians animals, including kangaroos which can be fed on their... More

Great place to go anytime - school holidays - weekends. Plenty of rest areas. Bought yearly pass and great just to take the kids for a few hours. Nice seating area to relax and enjoy a coffee

If you are a visitor to Australia, you must come here to get your photo taken with a koala. It's one of the only places in the world you can do so. But Lone Pine is so much more - it's an amazing little zoo with all of the cool Aussie animals, and huge lizards that run around at your... More
