LONE PINE KOALA SANCTUARY

Unwind with an organic coffee in the “Koala Forest” surrounded by 40 koalas! Watch the antics of cute female koalas like “Crumpet” and “Bertha” and dine in the spacious covered courtyard, or just enjoy the peaceful atmosphere and free WiFi internet access.
Photo opportunities are available all day, so make sure you get up close and personal with one of our koalas anytime between 9:00am and 4:30pm.
Lone Pine offers various activities and presentations on Australian wildlife through the day.
Enjoy the Aussie outback farm experience with the sheep dog show and watch the dogs work their amazing sheep mustering skills three times daily. Performed by experienced award-winning sheep dog handlers and their loyal dogs, this is a must see show! Then watch the shearers skilfully shear off the wool of the sheep and grab a sample after!
Watch the amazing eagles soar high in the sky at the bird of prey free flight show. Our experienced wildlife officers run the show twice daily and also give you the chance to get a photo taken holding one of the fantastic raptors at the end of the show.
Also don’t miss out on the opportunity to feed over 130 kangaroos and wallabies, the wild lorikeets and catfish or hold a snake! Be sure to check out our newest exhibit, the platypus!
