Can you believe our beloved koalas were once culled for their fur? It was during this time, in 1927, that Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary opened its doors to create a refuge for sick and injured koalas. Since then it has expanded to welcome visitors from all over the country and the world. More than a tourist experience, visitors learn of the conservation of our beloved furry friends and contribute to their wellbeing.

ellaslist opinion: No visit is complete without cuddling a koala, and you can also hold a crocodile or a snake if you're game. Check out the photo wall for all the celebs that have done it before you.

Where: 708 Jesmond Road, Fig Tree Pocket

When: 7 days 9am to 5pm, Anzac Day 1:30pm to 5pm
