Hey Guys! I had a really nice time yesterday at a local Koala Sanctuary here in the Brisbane area. I thought I’d share some of the cute animals I saw. This was the first animal sanctuary I have visited, but it inspired me to visit more in the future. I’m not a big fan of zoos, or anything that confines animals for the sake of entertainment. The animals at Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary had a lot of room to roam freely, and I was fortunate enough to hang out with some of them!
I honestly thought emus were a bit… aggressive? Well, they can be… don’t be an idiot and try to jump or ride one please. I know people who are dumb enough to do this. It was really nice to be a few feet away to actually petting, holding and feeding some of Australia’s most famously native animals. I felt really inspired and connected during my visit. My only complaint would be the food. The small cafe located somewhere near the enter of the action was a huge letdown. There was a tiny selection of very overpriced, cheap quality food so I was a bit bummed out about it. I kind of wish touristy locations would have a bit more integrity when it comes to their selling strategies, but, hey… nobody is forcing me to sell my soul for a stale cheese sandwich, right?
koala or drop bear?
I loved walking around and seeing little koalas hanging out and munching on their yummy eucalyptus plants next to me. They’re so cute!!! Overall, I would recommend anyone to visit Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary if they’re in the Brisbane area. You’ll get to hug koalas, feed kangaroos and hang out with emus. I recommend eating beforehand so you don’t feel compelled to sell your first born for a stale muffin though.
Here is a short video of my visit. It was really hard trying to film, photograph and actually enjoy all of the amazing scenery! I hope you enjoy!
