Trip was exceptional. The boat tour was amazing the staff were very friendly, and the tour of the sanctuary was also amazing. Up close once in a lifetime experience with the animals such as Koalas, Kangaroos, Viper etc. Would highly recommend this package.

We loved our experience with Miramar Cruise! It is a very good way to learn more about the famous Brisbane River and the buildings that surround it. The cruise boat is cosy and I am surprised that there is a cafe inside it! So we had our breakfast on the boat, the price is also affordable. We also love the Lone Pine Zoo! It feels so natural and the animals look happy and calm. We got to see loads of Koalas and feed the Kangaroos too. Although we only had 3 hours to stay in the Zoo (because the next trip back to the city is at 2 pm), it was enough for us to enjoy the sights and animals in the Zoo. Would definitely recommend anyone that’s holidaying in Brisbane to have a go at this experience with family and friends.

Nice relaxing cruise up the river. Good informative narrative. Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary great experience. Lots of koalas to see and opportunity to hold a koala and have your photograph taken (for a price. Funds go to help with sanctuary costs). Lots of kangaroos to hand feed.
