Hang out with cuddly koalas at the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary

The Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary is one of Australia’s oldest koala conservation centres, having provided refuge for sick, injured or orphaned koalas since the 1920s, when koalas were being traded for their fur.

Today, the sanctuary continues to provide a wonderful safe haven for one of Australia’s most beloved animals, and their work has never been more important!

But what makes this sanctuary so special is that it provides an opportunity for both local and international visitors to connect and learn about these cuddle little creatures so that they can be inspired to help out their amazing cause.

So, what are some of the awesome things you can do at this special conservation centre? And what makes it such a beautiful place to visit and learn about this most adorable tree chiller?
