Boat Cruise to Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary

The Mirimar Cruise Boat departs at 10am on Wednesday from Wharf 4 North Quay, located below the Casino and Victoria Bridge just further on from the CityCat ferry pontoon. Boarding commences from 9.30am. The cruise to the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary is an entertaining, narrated journey that includes morning tea. You will come face to face with a unique inner-city colony of fruit bats hidden among the mangroves and see breathtaking modern mansions and historic Queenslander homes, along Brisbane’s sought after riverfront. Once you arrive at Lone Pine Sanctuary you can enjoy 2.5 hours there hand feeding kangaroos and emus, watching animal shows and maybe even cuddling a koala! The return journey will include a light lunch and the boat will return to the city around 3pm.

Please sign up for this excursion during the online registration process. This social event takes place as an alternative to the Wednesday workshops. Speakers and participants of the Wednesday workshops and the Doctoral Consortium are unable to attend the boat cruise, and we encourage you to make time to see the koala sanctuary in your own time.
