Located on Brisbane’s riverside, it’s the perfect way to spend your day.

Whale Watching

From July to November, you can enjoy Brisbane whale watching, even if you’re in a mobility scooter or wheelchair. From their website: “On board you’ll experience sightings of the magnificent humpback whale and many other marine animals – e.g. Dolphins. All on the calm clear pristine waters of the bay. We have wheelchair access and are Eco Accredited. We have found that whales use the area to rest, bond and feed their young. Often, we’ll see new born whales or even live births from the deck, up close and personal.”

Loan Pine Koala Sanctuary

Loan Pine Koala Sanctuary is home to around over 100 koalas and over 70 native species and is the first and largest koala sanctuary in the world. Due to the hilly terrain, alternate routes are available for guests with limited mobility, and wheelchair hire is available for those in need. Personal mobility devices such as prams, strollers, wheelchairs and electric mobility scooters are permitted for use at Lone Pine. Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary is a great day out in Brisbane that you’ll never forget.
