      About this Brisbane Tour

      Koalas are cuteness overload. Who wouldn't want to cuddle them? You get to do just that at Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, one of the only places in the world where you can hug a koala for free. So how do you hug them? Make like a tree. Seriously. Koalas hug the way they cling onto eucalyptus trees, their main source of food, by making a cuddly circle around you with their paws and claws.

      These cute critters are just one of Australia's unique animals, though. Because Australia is the world's largest island, and thus geographically isolated, 80 percent of the country's animals and plants, including an array of exotic birds, are native to Australia only, and many of them are at the sanctuary. No wonder AOL calls it one of the top 10 zoos in the world,

      At Lone Pine, you can feed one of the over 130 kangaroos (and their young, known as joeys) hopping around the place. See the very strange platypus, which looks like a cartoon character. Daily shows and demonstrations help you get up close with snakes, lorikeets, barn animals, sheep and sheepdogs, raptors, and even Tasmanian Devils.

      Your next stop is Mt. Coot-tha Lookout, where you'll get to glimpse vibrant Brisbane views from this high point. See if you can spot the famous XXXX Brewery and Suncorp Stadium. It is an interesting juxtaposition of the old and the new, with natural bushland rubbing shoulders with TV and radio towers, a restaurant, cafe and gift shop, and a botanic garden. Don't forget your camera to capture epic shots of mountains and the coast.

      Koalas are un"bear"able

      Many people think of koalas as bears, even calling them "koala bears," but they are really marsupials. The cuddly mammals are related to kangaroos, and even have pouches for their young, known as joeys, the way 'roos do. They live simple lives, hanging out in eucalyptus trees, eating the leaves, and snoozing for close to 20 hours a day. What a life of leisure.
