The Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary is located in Brisbane, Australia. It is the largest and first sanctuary in the world with over one hundred and thirty koalas. In the sanctuary you will be able to hand feed the kangaroos and cuddle the koalas. There is a myth about the Koalas to think that they are drunk on the leaves of the eucalyptus. In the Lone Pine Sanctuary you will also discover echidnas, wombat, Tasmanian devil, kangaroos and dingos. Koala is an aboriginal word which means “no drink”. Koalas are usually found on the coast near Adelaide and in the southern part of Cape York Peninsula. The Lone Pine Sanctuary is a fabulous place to visit with family and friends. Koalas can stay up on the eucalyptus trees very long without drinking but it is only because the leaves of the eucalyptus contain fifty percent water. The koalas sleep a lot.
