Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
Lone Pine has way more than just koalas, but it also has a lot of koalas – over 130 apparently – ready and waiting to be cuddled and photographed with you. For something a little more spine-tingling, opt for a photo with a raptor or a snake. On the other end of the Australian wildlife spectrum, you can also hand-feed kangaroos and wallabies or be sure to check out a sheep dog show, a platypus keeper talk or a big lorikeet-feeding session. You can get to Lone Pine by car or bus, and compared to other theme parks and zoos, it really doesn’t take too long to reach from the city.
