Aloha Brisbane! Cuddling koalas and more

The high point of any trip to Australia is meeting their koalas and kangaroos

Posted December 10, 2012 by Melissa Chang

As with every Hawaiian Airlines inaugural flight, there is a media day tour to show the highlights of the destination. When you go to Australia, if nothing else, you absolutely must go to a zoo that features all of the continent’s unique wildlife. Lone Pine is the place to go in Brisbane for cuddling koalas and feeding kangaroos.

Aloha Brisbane!

Everyone recommends you go to Lone Pine when you visit Brisbane. This was really the highlight of our trip, and you'll see why.
