You can start boarding the boat at 9.30am and the boat leaves at 10.00am to go to Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary.Once you arrive there, you will have 3 hours to explore the sanctuary with more than 130 Koalas on site. Not only that, but Lone Pine also hosts a sheepdog show where you see the hardworking dogs round up a herd of sheep, responding to their master's whistles, calls, and hand signals. You can also see the Platypus House where you can see the native animal from Australia, the platypus. Then, check out owls, kites and sea eagles soar above you at the popular Flight Raptor show and then the chance to feed the kangaroos and wallabies.
