The Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary is the world’s first and largest Koala sanctuary (founded 1927). Located only 20 minutes from Brisbane, it is a short drive, or you can easily take one of the buses which stops right in front. There are many other animals here but the focus is on the Koalas. You can even have your picture taken with one of the cuddly animals.
Note some of the celebrity photos on display with the animals. Another highlight is the Kangaroo field – you can walk among and take close-up photos of the Kangaroos. Some are so lazy they may be lying on their back and won’t even move if you walk up to them. For more information visit: www.koala.net
