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.

After entering the door, the first thing I saw was not Koala, but several birds and parrots, one of which was snow-white and lovely. Then, turning a corner of grass full of lizards along the road sign (and even a few climbing directly to the road to hatch the sun), you can see Koala. The zoo has many compartments for koalas, in which they move freely. Of course, there are only two kinds of activities: eating eucalyptus leaves and sleeping. A few more steps are the zoo's highlight: the place to hold koalas. According to Australian law, only Queensland now allows tourists to carry koalas, so tourists from all over the world flock to embrace this Australian national treasure, super germ. The tickets can be booked online or bought on the spot. After purchasing the tickets, we queue up according to the regulations. The tickets discounted by the tickets are about 120 yuan, including a photo. Before holding a koala, you need to check your luggage, stand in the designated position under the guidance of the staff, make the designated hand type, and wait for the staff to put the koala in your hand. It should be noted that each step must be obeyed by the staff. In short, the koala should not feel a little uncomfortable. The koala must change one every 20 minutes and feed it eucalyptus leaves anytime and anywhere. Compared with the previous incident of holding a tiger cub in a zoo in China, the contrast is striking. To be honest, the koala is a little heavy. Haha, it doesn't take long to hold it for 10 seconds, but it's enough to take a few pictures. There is no need to be afraid or timid about the process of holding koalas. These koalas are fairly docile. They claw on their chest and rest on their palms in obedience. After playing with koala enough, you can walk to a fenced lawn with two other Australian national treasure animals, EMUs and kangaroo. After entering, pay attention to the foot, don't step on Kangaroo flying. As soon as I entered the door, I was attracted by one EMU and chased it all the way. Finally, I took a picture with the other one. Kangaroos, on the other hand, gather in large groups. They are too lazy to move anyway unless they are fed, so they are free to "concave shape" in the kangaroo group. Leave this area and remember to wash your hands outside. In addition, there are Australian hyenas, pythons, ostriches but birds with colored jaws and various birds. In addition, there is a room in the corner of the zoo with mysterious platypuses, but they swim too fast in the water to see anything and photograph nothing. In addition, unfortunately, the crocodile's position was adjusted and no crocodile was seen. After a morning tour of the zoo, you can go to the tourist service center to buy some food. There is a large dining area with enough chairs on the side. You can also take your own pictures of koalas here. The French fries sold here are very delicious. The large portion of 7.5 Australian fries can also be dipped in more than a dozen sauces. The golden appearance of the pot is fresh, crisp and tender. At last, the fragrance near the end of the meal attracts several big birds, throws a handful of French fries to disperse them, and then leaves in a hurry. As a result, they disturb a table of Koreans behind me and toss them up sufficiently. All in all, it's worth coming here to hold a koala, isn't it?
Queensland can hold a koala. This reserve is located in Brisbane. I studied at the University of Queensland and wanted to hold a koala very early. So I chose Lone Pine for a weekend. It's more convenient to go there by bus at city or indoor pilly. I can get there by 430, that is, the number of buses is relatively small. If you are a friend who comes to Australia for the first time, you must pay attention to the departure time. Change tickets at the door, and then enter the reserve. There are many koalas and kangaroos in the reserve, which is really a paradise for animal enthusiasts. Come here and hold koalas. The boys are honest but heavy. Lunch can be either self-help or fast food. Photos taken will be taken in the restaurant, which is filled with pictures of celebrities holding koalas in the reserve. There are many other animals in it. Personally, it feels much better than the paradise farm that the tour group likes.
There are buses available, and I arrive at 11:30 a.m. and close at 5:00 p.m. E-tickets can be sent to register Koala@gmail.com at the entrance of Longbokola Zoo. The staff will print them out for you and sign them in. Field 38 knives, online 22 knives saved 16 knives, super cost-effective. As soon as I got in, I went straight to the line holding Koalas. You can see it in two minutes on the right side of the door. It was a little late at 11:30 and queued for 40 minutes. Today is Australia's National Day. There are two prices for holding koalas: 25 and 30 knives. 25 is a photo, 30 = 1 photo + 1 A4 paper calendar + 3 postcards. I saved my lunch money and chose 30. You can take it after about 10 minutes. Koala's budding thoughts finally fulfilled my dream. The reserve also sells Australian flowers and lets you take them home for planting.
When Brisbane Airport arrived, it rented a car and went straight to the zoo! It is said that Queensland is the most suitable place to see and hold koalas, and Brisbane has few attractions, so this is a necessary place to punch in at the beginning will not be used to driving here, familiar with the discovery for a while is not so difficult, it is already 1 p.m. by the time of the attractions. There are plenty of free parking spaces at the entrance, which is suitable for self-driving. I bought tickets in advance online, so I am very happy to see the price list on the spot. Some ticket offices will save a tour guide map for sale of A$1. In order to change money, I bought a guide map. Then I found the contents on the Internet. It's not too expensive [laughing and crying] Entrance will have today's performance arrangement, basically the same every day. Koalas are really many, although smelly but crying! When I saw it, I couldn't help crying out [spitting out] and going inside, there were Koala babies everywhere. It would be more lovely if they were still young babies! When the time is right, it's free to take a picture with a koala (on your mobile phone), but the koala is held by staff, you can touch it a little and feel it sleeping every minute [laughing and crying] If it's for the official photo group, it's a fee. Other animals are also interesting. Kangaroos, Tasmanian demons, platypuses, wombats, shepherds, green parrots and so on are all very surprising to meet for the first time, especially kangaroos. They always thought that they would be punched [laughed and cried] when they were close to them, but they were super meek. There are toilets, restaurants and souvenir shops in the casual photo park. Generally speaking, it's a worthwhile place to visit, because it's really the most concentrated animal gathering place in my later journey. It's also the most refreshing place to see Koala. The zoo is not big. We walk very slowly and it's about three hours. It's suitable for all ages and children. We recommend leisure and free travel to punch in.
Come to Longbo and see the unique animals in Australia. Take 430 from Queen Street to Longbo for about half an hour. Tickets are 36 yuan, students and elderly people above 65 yuan, 24 yuan (for certificates). There are pearl chickens roaming in the garden. Kangaroos and EMUs are also in close contact with visitors. They can buy special food for feeding. Koalas are the most sought-after animals, lazily climbing eucalyptus trees to sleep. Sometimes open your eyes to see, the image is dull and funny. There is an additional fee for holding koala photographs. There are performances of raptor, shepherd dog, sheep shearing and wool shearing regularly.
Before going there, I thought it was like a domestic zoo, looking at animals through the window, taking pictures and walking away. Only when we get here can we find out what is harmonious coexistence between man and nature and what is enjoying teaching! Outside the park, a river runs through, and as soon as we enter the gate of the park, we find that the underground lizards are enjoying themselves, completely ignoring us. Kangaroos are jumping and koalas are sleeping. Interesting performances one after another, shearing wool, flying birds, and taking pictures with koalas. Playing is not the only way to make children and adults more knowledgeable.
Longbokoala Zoo, since 1927, koala kangaroos are sprouting, unfortunately missed the wool shearing performance in Australia, only Queensland can really hold koala photography, so Longbokoala Zoo must not miss, as a born to sleep and eat is really too happy! And the super calm kangaroo gentleman, let you flirt and touch, infinite intimate contact
There were many koalas, from big to small, and they could take pictures with koalas, 18 Australian dollars at a time, and return the pictures. You can also buy kangaroo food and feed kangaroos in person. It looks like 2 Australian dollars a bag. Basically, it's for koala kangaroos. Look at other animals. They can finish it in about two hours.
