Wildlife Experiences

COVID - 19 Update:

Due to COVID-19 restrictions our Premium Wildlife Experiences are currently on hold.

For enquiries regarding future tours please contact  to be put on a waitlist for when these experiences re-open. 


Lone Pine’s Wildlife Experiences immerse you in the action as keepers and animals share the highlights of their daily lives. Experiences range from 45-minute encounters to full-day programs and can include a range of activities from holding koalas and sunning pythons, to feeding a platypus and walking with a dingo. There’s sure to be something to cater for enthusiasts of all animals, furry feathery or scaly.

Bookings are essential. Experiences are available at select times throughout the day and are not available on Queensland public holidays. Sunday surcharges apply. Minimum age requirements apply and participants between 12-17 years old must be accompanied by an adult participant for daily experiences.
