In the Brisbane suburb of Fig Tree Pocket, a tiny paradise for Aussie animals exists. Cruise down the Brisbane River to the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, where you can get an unforgettable, up-close look at these lovable, tree-dwelling creatures plus a whole array of only-in-Oz animals.

Step aboard a modern cruise boat in the heart of the city, and set off for your meandering ride down the Brisbane River. As you pass by modern mansions and historic Queensland homes, your captain provides entertaining narration about Brisbane, past and present. Grab tea or a bite to eat if you'd like during your 1 hour 15 minute ride.

Disembark at the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary with plenty of time to explore. The world's first and largest koala sanctuary, this eco-park is home to more than 130 cuddly, eucalyptus-munching marsupials and a variety of critters native to the land Down Under.

Watch the Tasmanian devil feeding while colourful parrots and cockatoos chirp overhead. Hand-feed a sherbet-splashed rainbow lorikeet or a curious kangaroo, and watch a sheep herding demonstration by the resident dogs at the sanctuary's farm.

The main attraction is, of course, the Koala Forest. Make your way into the enclosure for a chance to hold one of these sleepy, snuggly creatures. Learn about the conservation efforts being made by the sanctuary, the plight of Australia's endangered animals and what you can do to help before boarding the boat for your return cruise to Brisbane.

My sister and I had a fantastic trip! We were warmly greeted. Clear and helpful guidance was given and great service was provided. All the staff on board were excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed our time in the wheel house on the return trip where I got to drive the boat! Albeit badly!! We had an awesome time in Long Pine Koala Sanctuary and wished we could have taken a dingo and a koala home! We had the best day and would highly recommend this trip to everyone.
