  • Took the All-Star tour today at Lone Pine Koala sanctuary and it was exceptional! Our guide and Zookeeper Nick was both knowledgeable and friendly and made this tour one of a kind! We were able to handle owls like a falconer, see hundreds of Koalas and pet them and later get our picture holding them. We also were able to hold a few of the reptiles and feed kangaroos out of our hands. We topped the tour off by feeding the two platypus at the sanctuary. What a morning!! Highly recommended!
  • Absolutely brilliant day out, all the animals are really well looked after. I enjoyed the variety of animals that the sanctuary has to offer and there are loads of koalas. The only disappointment was the Koala experience. We got to hold the koalas for less than 1 minute each when it says 15 minutes on the website. This was extremely frustrating and not good value for money. Apart from this I really enjoyed the sanctuary. There are also 2 cafes, 1 inside and 1 outside which is really convenient.
