We are a family of 3 (2 adults, 1 infant). We had originally booked for Friday, but due to low numbers we were moved to Saturday which was a little inconvenient, but understandable. Cruise left on time and was super enjoyable despite the grizzly weather. Tour commentary was informative without becoming boring or rambling. Staff were great. Lone Pine itself was great despite the change around in exhibits due to COVID. Would recommend to anyone with a free day in Brisbane.

Really good experience! The staff on board was friendly and helpful. It was a great guiding on the River Cruise, but I think you can speed up the boat Cruise a bit, especially on the ride back to Brisbane. It was good that we could go on our own in the park during the day.

Thoroughly enjoyable boat river cruise and commentary, Koala Sanctuary was everything we expected however during the tomes we were at the sanctuary we could not get photos in the allotted times which was a little disappointing. Could also do with better signposting for directions.
