World’s First and Largest Koala Sanctuary

Sanctuary Webcams

Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary is the world’s first and largest koala sanctuary, home to 130 koalas and many other Australian animals living in the natural vegetation and built habitats.

The below webcams are a window into life at Lone Pine. We want to share the lives of our animal residents and the philosophy behind the sanctuary and its habitats.

For almost 100 years, Lone Pine has engaged guests and connected communities with wildlife. Part of Lone Pine’s plan for the future is to build new exhibits, or refurbish existing exhibits, to update and align animal, staff and guest experiences with our vision and mission. A range of important areas are considered during the planning phase of exhibit design, including psychological and physical animal welfare, the husbandry of each animal, the educational value of exhibits, and public safety.

Lone Pine draws on industry accreditations and regulations, including the Zoo and Aquarium Association, Biosecurity Queensland, and Ecotourism Australia, to audit exhibits and operations to ensure the highest standards animal welfare while minimising environmental impacts.
