Offering a convenient departure point right from the heart of the city, this popular **Brisbane River Cruise** has been taking visitors to the popular **Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary** for over 70 years. There is no better way to travel to the largest Koala sanctuary in the world than with a comfortable boat ride along the Brisbane River that will take you right to a disembarking point on the shores of the park. The perfect way to get up close and see eye to eye with Australia's huge range of native creatures while also enjoying the many sights and sounds of Brisbane's most attractive waterfront suburbs which are accessible only by boat. You'll gain the benefits of an entertaining narrated journey from the experienced, entertaining and knowledgeable captain and see breathtaking modern mansions and historic Queenslander homes along Brisbane's exclusive riverfront.

Recommend highly. Great price for relaxing day out
We had our relos from England here and booked this trip. The boat ride down the river was fantastic with the added commentary. Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary was great. The boat to go back to Brisbane was was well organised and expectations set out so you knew when you had to be back to boat from sanctuary Great trip.

Excellent day out on the river cruise to the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary.
Highly recommend this experience for families. Cruise had everything you needed and friendly staff. Some great commentary as you cruise down the river. The koala Sanctuary was fantastic, so many animals and some great shows. We loved watching the free flight birds and sheep dog show. Animals were interactive with kangaroo feeding and the first time the family and I got to pat an emu. Cruise was on time leaving and we all enjoyed a cold beverage from their onboard cafe for the ride home. Wonderful day!
