Adopt Maximus

20 December 2007
Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary (Brisbane, QLD)

Even though Maximus is one of the largest koalas in the sanctuary, he is quite the gentle giant. He has a regal stature and a quiet nature but can be quite nervous in usual situations. Maximus can be selective about when he wants to cuddle or interact with his humans but when you find his favourite massage spot, he is putty in your hands.



When you adopt a Koala, you receive a beautiful personalised adoption certificate with a photo of your Koala, a welcome letter, Koala stickers, and more. And if you are in the area you can drop in and visit the adorable Koala you adopted! *(Cost of Koala adoption does not include park admission fees).

*We cannot guarantee however, that the adopted Koala will be available for viewing on the day so it is always best to contact the zoo or park prior to your visit to avoid disappointment.

Please note: Koalas are not pets. This is a symbolic Koala adoption, or a ‘foster’ program. Your monthly donation, which is a twelve month commitment, goes towards the work of helping save Koalas in the wild; so by adopting one of these gorgeous Koalas, you will be helping their less fortunate wild cousins!
