We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Was surprised to see so many Koalas. Some very informative talks about the animals. Very disappointed that we could not hold the koalas as we arrived just after lunch. Unfortunately we had just arrived off the plane and that is...More

Very nice park, not too big, lots of Kangaroos in open meadow and Koalas to see and to cuddle, 20 $ extra for digital photo, or wait for a free photo for donations. You see Tasmanian devil, Platybus and others

Stayed 4 hours in front of koala, just gazing at them. Witnessed koala crying("wofu, wofu, wofu"), flying like pteromys, babies clinging to elder's back. This place is heaven for koala freak. You can cuddle a koala and get a photo at AUD20. They also have...More

Well, a part from seeing koalas and kangaroos you have nothing very interesting in this Sanctuary. They are using koalas as a major attraction. If you haven't seen them yet then why not paying 36$ for it otherwise is definitely not worth it. I will...More

My mother and I had a boat trip leaving from South Bank with a Lone Pine visit included. It was a great, relaxing journey down the Brisbane river, and the koala sanctuary was a lovely little bonus. You can hand feed the kangaroos there. Would...More

I'm very wary about animals in tourist attractions but this place is lovely. The emphasis is definitely on animal welfare and the koalas are looked after very well. The koalas used for photos are rotated/rested often and the keepers do a great job at looking...More

It’s quiet hard to push a pram in it as there are many hills. It’s quiet little and not much to see. Needs more maintaining. But definitely good for tourists who want to touch a koala or kangarooMore

This was a perfect introduction to Australian wildlife, so easy to get to from Brisbane airport. It was the perfect way to stretch our our legs, hold a koala and learn more about all the amazing animals located at this sanctuary.

We took a boat cruise to the sanctuary- which made it even better. The place is clean, well thought out - welcoming and AMAZING. It's one of the only places in Australia where you can actually hold a koala. Plan on spending a full day...More

2 Hours is heaps. It’s not very big and you probably won’t need even that long plus it’s getting really hot out there as it’s outside and you probably want to go home anyway. When you buy a ticket online it’s cheaper :-)

Just turn up and Q. Best to avoid the times the boat has just arrived (the boat trip is excellent) Get to as many of the animal talks as possible, the Raptor show was very good, as was the Snake and Koala keepers talks.

Under will pick you up anywhere I think it was around $25 it depends on your pick up and demand at the time of your pick up but a great alternative to getting a taxi.
