when I visit in September I’m planning on going to both Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary and Australia Zoo. The Koala is my favourite animal and I’ve waited all my life to see one. I want to do a cuddle/ interaction with one. Has anyone any advice on whether I m best to do the Koala Encounter at Lone Pine which is $150 (including entry so is really $114 extra)) for 45 minutes (though I’m not sure how much of that time is spent with Koala) or the One at Australia Zoo for $49. I understand that you can do this for free where they quickly let you hold koala for a photo, but I’d prefer to pay for a less rushed experience. Has anyone done both and have opinions on which one was the best?
I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
