365 Challenge #349 - the parking lot's full at Lone Pine!

We had a great family day out at Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary!

Based out at Fig Tree Pocket, in Brisbane's western suburbs, the park claims to be the world's first and largest koala sanctuary, with over 130 koalas.

It was my second visit to Lone Pine, and what I love about this place, is that it's really laid back, and you can get up close and personal with the animals. There's koalas to the left and right, and a huge open area where kangaroos and wallabies roam around.

My two-year old nephew, Ben, was able to pat guinea pigs and chicks, sheep, goats and all manner of animals! The bird feeding session was a riot of lorikeets, rosellas and king parrots, and we saw working sheep dogs herd sheep, and then a veteran shearer relieve one of its fleece.

Lone Pine is a great day out for any Brisbanite or visitor to Brissie, and it's particularly great for photographers. Check it out when you can :)
