Yvette***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.
7racymoonThe lookout is very close to the mount coot-tha Botanical Garden. You can take the bus from downtown Brisbane to the botanical garden. You can take the shuttle bus from the botanical garden to the lookout, you can look over the city and you can have a coffee there.
