Australia (2014) Day 5: Brisbane - Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary

Date Visited: 15th October 2014

When one visit Australia, the thing you shouldn't miss is to get up close and personal with the Aussie wildlife. What are the animals on your mind when come to Australia? Of course, none other than koalas and kangaroos especially.

It's really hard for me to resist all these cute, furry and cuddly creatures whenever I was in Australia. One of the things in my bucket list is to cuddle and take photo with the koala. It so happens that I stumble upon Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, which is the world's first, oldest and largest koala sanctuary with over 130 koalas.

How To Get Here From Brisbane City
  • Bus #430 from Platform 2C at Queen Street Station
  • Bus #445 from Stop 40 at Adelaide Street
From Central Adelaide Street Stop 40, it takes approximately of 40 minutes to reach Lone Pine. In order to travel around Brisbane using the public transport, we purchased "go card", a contactless smart card which similar to our Touch 'n Go card. A deposit of AU$10 is required when purchasing "go card" and this card can be purchased and reloaded at the train stations, some ticket vending machines as well as few selected news agents and convenience stores which there are many of them in the city centre.
