Overview

The Koala and River Cruise is a memorable journey on the Brisbane River to the renowned Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary. This popular cruise has been taking locals and visitors to the park for over 60 years and is a "must do" experience during your stay in Brisbane.  You’ll board your boat in Brisbane’s Southbank district and leave the city behind on a relaxing cruise to Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary.  Enjoy an informative commentary from your captain as you glide along Brisbane’s waterfront, passing from the bustle of the city’s skyscrapers to leafy suburbs with waterside mansions.  Explore the world’s largest koala sanctuary, with more than 130 Koalas on site.  Hold a koala, take photos with the adorable marsupials (own expense), and perhaps catch a talk by the koala’s keepers.  Discover the Platypus House where you may get a chance to see the shy platypus  Check out owls, kites and sea eagles soar above you at the popular Birds of Prey show.  Relax on our ultra-modern cruise boat and indulge in homemade meals and snacks or enjoy a glass of our Australian wine or beer from our on-board cafe.

The trip started with a narrated cruise down the Brisbane River, pointing out notable sights and relating some of their history. The Sanctuary has many koalas to see and photograph. For a fee, you can hold one. You can also feed the kangaroos, but when...More

Response from MirimarCruises | Property representative |
If you would like to hold a Koala and have a picture taken it is extra and paid direct to the sanctuary when you visit. The cost (at the time of writing this message) ranges from AUD$20 - $24 with various packages available.
