Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary A visit to Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, the world’s oldest and largest koala sanctuary is highly recommended. Home to over 130 koalas and a large variety of Australian wildlife, you will have the opportunity to hold a cuddly koala or hand feed some free ranging kangaroos and wallabies in a beautiful natural setting. There are also Sheep Dog Shows to enjoy three times daily. Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary is open daily from 9.00am – 5.00pm.

Scenic Flight over Brisbane with Sky Dance Departing from Archerfield Airport, Skydance Adventure Flight Getaways offer several different flight experiences from Brisbane City or Bay Island Scenic Flights to Weekend Adventures such as Mountain Winery Experience or a Stradbroke Island Adventure. What better way to enjoy our beautiful river city than from the comfort of a modern Turbocharged Piper Chieftain aircraft complete with leather seats, noise-cancelling BOSE audio system and air-conditioning.

Rocks Riverside Park Enjoy some family fun at Rocks Riverside Park at Seventeen Mile Rocks. With over 8,000 square metres of open grassed space, numerous barbecues, a water play area, junior playground suitable for toddlers to eight year olds and a 800 metre riverside promenade to stroll or cycle along, there is something for everyone to enjoy. In the summer months, the Rocks Riverside Parks waterpark is hugely popular. There are shallow pools throughout the park with large shaded areas making it a toddler’s paradise.

Brisbane Markets, Rocklea Every weekend the Brisbane markets in Rocklea is home to two different markets. The Saturday Fresh Market has a huge selection of fresh produce and lots of gourmet delights to tantalise your taste buds whilst the Sunday Discovery Market is a second-hand shopping haven. Open every weekend from 6.00am until midday.

Sherwood Arboretum Containing approximately 300 species of almost entirely native flora, these beautiful gardens with two artificial lake wetlands and a river walk and jetty for fishing are the ideal way to spend a relaxing day.
