Best Brisbane Wildlife Experience
What is a wildlife experience?
A wildlife experience is a short activity, a day trip or even an overnight adventure, where you get close to native animals to truely experience them.
How the Best Wildlife Experience is chosen
The best wildlife experience is one where you can tell the animals are happy and healthy in their native habitat an not in any distress at all. If the location is primarily a sanctuary, care facility, or performs some other function highly beneficial to the animals, that is regarded very highly.
We are looking for a wildlife experience that is a great family friendly activity. Suitable for children to enjoy with their adults and even their more senior adults. There is something magical about having two or three generations sharing an experience together. So if the experience caters for young children, children can experience it with parents and careers, other relatives and friends can join in regardless of age, that is looked on very favourably.
Lets face it, when it comes to cool an interesting animals, Australia is the best place in the world, bar none.
When you family an friends come form out of town you want show them around and let the experience things they cannot experience at home. You cannot beat local wildlife experience. For your out-of-towners, it provides that great bonding experience together, a those magic photo moments that get relived again and again after they go back home.
Cost is not a key factor
Here at 'Best..' we are all about finding the best of everything. Not the best value, just the best!
For many other categories, unless the cost is prohibitively expensive, we do not consider the cost at all in our ratings. However, as this is considered a larger group family activity which could include pensioners, so the cost is considered just a little. Our view is still that you are not doing a wildlife adventure every day, and if you were to do just one wildlife adventure in the next couple of years, you want it to create lasting memories for you whole group, where is the best place to go to have that experience?
Meet a koala, hand-feed kangaroos and engage with a large variety of Australian wildlife in Lone Pine's beautiful, natural settings.

Ipswich Nature Centre is an impressive mini zoo and sanctuary that has free entry but encourages a gold coin donation.
There is a large variety of Australian wildlife to see, including dingos, kangaroos, wallabies, wombats, emus, quolls, birds and many different lizard species. You can even see my favourite, the nocturnal bilbies, active and foraging for food in the dark, in a purpose built, pitch black, observing tunnel.
