Brisbane River Cruise to Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary

This popular Brisbane river cruise has been taking locals and visitors to Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary for over 70 years and is a “must do” experience while in Brisbane.

Enjoy this memorable journey on the Brisbane River to the oldest and largest Koala Sanctuary in the world.

The cruise travels through the city's most historic landscapes, iconic attractions, historical home sites and interesting wildlife habitats.

Enjoy an informative commentary as you glide along Brisbane’s waterfront, from the bustle of the city’s skyscrapers through to leafy suburbs with waterside mansions.

As you travel, indulge in homemade morning teas, lunch and snacks (own expense) from the on-board cafe.

At Lone Pine Koala Sactuary, you have three hours to explore; hand feed kangaroos and emus, experience an authentic Australian sheep dog in action, spy on a shy platypus swimming, see the amazing birds of prey, and have a photo taken holding a koala!
