Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, QLD

The world’s oldest and largest koala sanctuary, Lone Pine, is now home to 130 koalas and over 100 species of native animals. Gillie and Marc created Cuddles as a way for students and adults to connect with these lovable creatures while enhancing the sanctuary’s nurturing environment. A koala is difficult to recreate, but Cuddles is extremely lifelike and has been well-received by both the young and young-at-heart.
