Australia’s iconic animals can be seen. Koala 🐨, Kangaroo 🦘, Australian wild boar 🐗 Wombat, dingo Dingo etc. I have been there twice, once with my brother, and once with my parents. It is suitable for the first time to go to Australia Zoo to check in attractions. Kangaroos and parrots can be in close contact and feeding on the open grass. Koalas can take pictures when they hug and touch koalas. There are basically no giant wild animals. They are very kids-friendly and suitable for taking children. However, some lizards are free-range, and they may rest under the table while sitting there. There are also parrot performances and shepherd dogs and sheep performances. The venue is not too big, plan to play in half a day enough. The fly in the ointment is that there is only one restaurant. The experience is very good, interesting and fun, it is recommended, and there are fewer types.

Queensland is the only state in Australia that allows tourists to hug a koala, woo hoo! As such, Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary is the MUST go place for all animal lovers. Thanks to trip.com, we managed to get a discounted entrance ticket at $20+ (Tips: buy in advance, usual price is $40). There are two koala photo session each day, it is totally free (ranger will hug the koala for u), however if you want to hug a koala by yourself, you are required to pay for another $25, still worth it since you can’t hug it anywhere else. There is a very big compound reserves for kangaroos, kangaroos and wallabies are roam freely in the area, I somehow managed to catch a selfie w a kangaroo! But, beware of your steps, their shits are everywhere on the floor. Some other activities to highlight are sheep dog herding show, falcon and owl feeding.Overall is a very good experience, easily accessible by bus (direct to CBD area), people normally spend 3-4 hours there.
Average experience. You can see Koalas and take pictures with them when you pay extra. except that, a small place, not many attractions.
LOVED this place! Quickly figured out I don't like koalas. Lol they smell..they're abnormaly heavy and their fur is bristly. They also have a chance kf carrying STDs. That aside this sanctuary also had a beautiful selection of birds and reptiles and my favorite..kangaroos and wallabys! So soft and you can feed them!
Ever wanted to hold a Koala or feed a kangaroo? This is the place you can do both. Lone Pine is the oldest and largest koala sanctuary, and they have many adorable koalas. You can also buy extra tickets to hold a koala and get your picture taken. If this is of interest make sure you get your tickets early and get in line, as the lines can get pretty long. If holding a koala isn't your thing, there are plenty of other Australian animals, and some very good presentations by the sanctuary keepers, like the raptor show.
