Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary

by Sally Foster (follow)
If you have a little animal lover in your family Lone Pine will be the perfect place to take them

Nestled in the lush riverside suburb of Fig Tree Pocket, Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary is filled with incredible native Australian wildlife and sure to delight the whole family with its treasures.

Although smaller in scale than Australia Zoo, Lone Pine is well worth a visit. It is not just the picturesque surroundings either, with its bush like setting, there are so many wonderful animals to see, and even feed and hold.

Do you want to learn how to knit? Or have recently started and would like to meet some new friends to share your creativity with, all while having a good chat? The Brisbane Knitting Club has classes for you!
You and your family are invited to a Photography for Parents Workshop on Sunday 28th April at New Farm Park.
As the name suggests, there are lots of sleepy koalas to see up close, as well as all the typical Aussie animals you would expect to see, like wombats, kangaroos, platypus, dingos, echidnas, cassowaries and lots of beautiful native birds.

There are plenty of animal encounters and demonstrations as well, if you feel like getting really up close. You can cuddle a koala, hand feed a kangaroo in the open paddock or feed wild lorikeets.

The kangaroos and wallabies are very friendly and happy to have a gentle pat while they are hand fed. See here for further details on the animal encounters including times. The encounters are all free, you just pay extra for photos if you would like them.

My favourite part about Lone Pine is actually the little animal farm they have. My one year old was absolutely delighted to see pigs, chickens, goats, sheep and ducks in the flesh and had a marvellous time patting them and making all the animal noises I spend so much time teaching him.

Once you have seen your fill of animals, there is also some food on offer with two cafes and a general store. One cafe is out the front before you enter, the other is inside the gates and you can pick something up and then eat in the open air tables surrounded by trees with koalas.

I opted to take my own lunch when I went, and was able to have it sitting alongside the river just outside the entrance on some picnic tables provided. In this same spot, there are free outdoor movie screenings held every 1st and 3rd Friday of the month.

For more information on Lone Pine, including a detailed map, daily schedule of events, directions and facilities see here. If you are looking for some budget friendly options, the annual pass is phenomenal value and I have now used it 15 times the past year!

Opening Hours: Open Daily from 9am to 5pm

Location: 708 Jesmond Road, Fig Tree Pocket

Price: Adult Daily is $36 and Child daily is $22 for over three years old. There are plenty of other ticketing options including an annual adult pass for $70 if you plan on visiting more than once.
