Why You'll Love This

What's Included?

  • 1.5 hour river cruise along Brisbane River
  • Commentary by knowledgable cruise captain
  • 3 hours at the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary

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!
