Brisbane cruise terminal to Lone Koala Sanctuary


Recommended Posts

  We are looking to go to Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary while we are in Brisbane. Is it possible to take a taxi from the pier and will there be availability of taxis at Lone Pine for the return?

The Lone Pine is about 15km the other side of Brisbane, most cruise ships have shore excursions to the park. The Bus also takes you through the City. Another way is to get to Brissy and then catch the M.V Miramar a cruiser that will take you upstream to the park. The new BCT is over 20km from the CBD so the trip to the park is about 40km that's why a shore excursion is the way to go. Not sure what Taxi service is like from BCT, a Queenslander like Sinbad should be of help there.

I would suggest you reword your post as it reads that no cruise ships are docking in Brisbane Port which is not correct. It is only Portside where smaller ships used to dock which is not in operation. The new Brisbane Cruise Terminal at Luggage Point is in full operation for all ships which are booked to dock there.

$300 for two seems expensive to me to not include entry to the Sanctuary.
