The Koala and River Cruise is a memorable journey on the Brisbane River to the 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 board your boat in Brisbane’s Southbank district and leave the city behind on a relaxing cruise to Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary. Enjoy an informative commentary as you glide along Brisbane’s waterfront, passing from the bustle of the city’s skyscrapers to leafy suburbs with waterside mansions. Relax on the ultra-modern cruise boat and indulge in homemade meals and snacks from the on-board cafe. You will have 3 hours to explore the world’s largest koala sanctuary, with more than 130 Koalas on site. Hold a koala, take photos with the adorable marsupials (additional expense), and perhaps catch a talk by the koala keepers. Discover the Platypus House or check out owls and sea eagles soaring above you at the popular Birds of Prey show. You can also feed the kangaroos and wallabies or watch a sheepdog show where you see the hardworking dogs round up a herd of sheep, responding to their master’s whistles, calls and hand signals. A fantastic and memorable day out for all the family!
There is minimum fitness level required to walk around the park, as well as 28 stairs to walk up from the river to the Koala Sanctuary.
The boat can hold up to 100 passengers, however there is no minimum number of people required for the tour to go ahead.
A jacket is recommended in the cooler months.
Koala holding experience must be booked separately AND prior to the day of attendance.
This experience departs from the Brisbane CBD.

That’s 10% of the Australian population! When we started ‘doing’ experiences in 2001, Facebook didn’t exist; the iPod had just been invented; John Howard was Prime Minister; and Destiny's Child were popular (yikes!). We’ve been at this business of experiences for quite a while, so put your trust in us to show you a good time.
The RedBalloon Price Guarantee does not apply to experiences involving accommodation or Experience Providers' own conditional sales.
