Accessibility

Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary was established on naturally hilly terrain and in order to maintain the integrity of the landscape, not all hills within the sanctuary are suitable for unassisted wheelchairs. Alternate routes are available for guests with limited mobility (see map below). Some areas of Lone Pine are unpaved, such as our two kangaroo reserves and sheepdog/barn area. These areas may not be suitable for all wheelchairs.

It is highly recommended that all guests wear suitable footwear. Shoes must be worn within the sanctuary and high heels are not recommended.

Please see the map below indicating the locations of stairs throughout the sanctuary. This map will also be provided to guests using wheelchairs upon arrival to Lone Pine.

All guests who choose to hire a wheelchair will be asked to sign a liability waiver and pay a maintenance fee of $6. Please refer to our accessibility map prior to your visit if a wheelchair will be used.
