Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary

Koalas, koalas, koalas! The world’s first (founded in 1927) and largest koala sanctuary is home to more than 130 of the cuddly creatures—which are actually marsupials, not bears. The naturally landscaped reserve, 12 kilometers (7.5 miles) from Brisbane, also shelters 100 other species of Australian animals, from the ubiquitous rainbow lorikeet to the elusive platypus, an egg-laying mammal rarely observed in the wild. After you feed a wallaby or a kangaroo, you can watch a sheepdog-herding show or a sheep-shearing demonstration. And did we mention koalas? Don't leave without a photo of yourself holding a koala!
