    Makes for a great day out in Brisbane with a relaxing river cruise to the koala sanctuary. Informative commentary about some of the local history along the river provided. Staff were very friendly. Well worth the money, would highly recommend.

    Our first time visiting Brisbane so after a full day walking around the city the day before, we fancied a chilled river trip & to see the koalas etc. This was a very enjoyable visit to Lone Pine koala sanctuary which we thoroughly enjoyed. The commentary on the boat was very informative & we thought the sanctuary was great too. Highly recommend!

    We took the return trip from the Koala Sanctuary back to downtown Brisbane. The ship is easy to find at the river edge, just walk down the path from the Sanctuary. At first I was worried about the plastic chair seats but the ride was smooth and the seats were fine. The boat moved fast enough for a nice, cooling breeze which was nice on a hot day. Lots of nice views. A lovely way to see the countryside and the city.

The staff are all polite, kind and helpful with useful information. The tour starts and ends punctually according to the schedule. Everything looks new and clean. Highly recommended for everybody
