Local Student Groups

Connect your students with Australian native wildlife like never before!

Lead your own self-guided visit, or strengthen your classroom teaching with hands-on, curriculum-linked Discovery Sessions, run by an experienced Wildlife Education Officer.

With kangaroo feeding, immersive shows, and an astonishing array of Aussie wildlife to visit, a Lone Pine excursion is sure to be a day to remember!

Lone Pine is open and accepting booking requests in line with our approved Industry COVID Safe Plan. Due to the ever-changing situation surrounding COVID-19, all bookings remain tentative and are subject to change depending on government regulations.

With over 70 species of Australian native animals and barnyard friends to discover, Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary is the perfect place to connect your students with wildlife and develop their appreciation for the natural world. 

Choose from a self-guided day, or upgrade to a Discovery Session package and make your visit even more special with a presentation led by our team of experienced Education Officers.
