Get out and amongst some Australian Native Wildlife this weekend and pay the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary a visit. You will find the sanctuary at 708 Jesmond Road, Fig Tree Pocket, Queensland, only a short drive from the Brisbane CBD in your hire car from Five Star Car Rentals. Opening hours are 9am – 5pm and it is wheelchair friendly.
There are stacks of shows throughout the day to keep you entertained like Wild Lorikeet Feeding, Bird of Prey Free Flight Show, Snake & Crocodile Photographs, Koala Presentation and many more. For an extra fee you can take part in one of the tours that are also offered- you might like to be a keeper for a day or take a look behind the scenes.
There are so many animals that call Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary home. You will see a wide variety of birds and reptiles, wombats, dingoes, echidnas, Tasmanian devils, platypus, koalas and many more. You can even cuddle a koala and have your picture taken with it. Refuel at one of the cafes or pack yourself a picnic lunch to enjoy- just remember no BYO alcohol as this can be purchased from the cafes.
