Business Class to Brisbane Leads to Adventure
After a Business Class Flight, Get Back to Nature at Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary
Everyone needs a little cuddle now and again. Luckily, you can hold and snuggle as many koalas as you want at the Lone Pine Sanctuary. It’s especially a treat after a long last minute flight to Brisbane. The largest koala sanctuary in the world, the facility is home to 130 koalas. Lone Pine nurtures many different animals in its various habitats. You can feed the kangaroos, hold a raptor or handle a snake. You can also hand-feed wallabies and lorikeets or watch sheep dogs herd their flocks. The sanctuary is one of the few places you can see Tasmanian Devil and platypus demonstrations. Birds on site include kookaburras, cassowarys and emus. There are also wombats, crocodiles, bats, monitors and barking owls. Lone Pine was established in 1927, making it the first koala sanctuary in the world.
