Koala Sanctuary & Brisbane River Cruise

Your tour begins with a river cruise that is a memorable journey on the Brisbane River as you head to the world renowned Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary. This popular cruise has been taking locals and visitors to the park for over 60 years and is a "must do" experience during your stay in Brisbane.

You will cruise through Brisbane's most historic landscapes, iconic attractions, historical home sites, and interesting wildlife habitats as you listen to an entertaining and informative commentary.

Then enjoy around 3 hours exploring the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, the world's first and largest koala sanctuary. You will have the opportunity to meet over 130 koalas, listen to a snake keeper talk, experience an Australian sheep dog show, spy on a shy platypus swimming and see the amazing free flight raptor show. You can even cuddle a koala (for an additional cost) and have your picture taken!
