Lone Pine is changing, still entertaining and moving along with the continuous flow of life in Brisbane. So much so that they are engaging us more than ever at a family and lifestyle level, as well as still being a place of sanctuary for those lovely koalas and other Australian animals that they lovingly care for.

The lovely Alexis Jane, owner of One Natural Therapies, yoga instructor of 15 years, massage therapist, naturopath and wellbeing coach, is now holding yoga classes on the lawn. You will enjoy her calming, peaceful, tranquil and effective style as she puts you through the moves that will have you bending, stretching and finding parts of you that you have not used in a while. You will come away more open, and at peace within yourself.
Her classes are Friday mornings from 9-10am and Saturday mornings from 8-9:00am. These classes are drop in, so bring a mat or towel, $10 per class and if you are a Lone Pine member you will get every 5th class for free. You can call her at 3220 0911 if you have any questions or check her website.
You can then wander around Lone Pine, and check out all the other new things that are around. If you haven't been here for a while you really need to come and take a look.
The free Friday night (5:30pm start) family movies can be viewed from the same grassed area where yoga is held. Bring your blankets and hang out for a family fun night. You can check Lone Pine's website for movie showings and dates.
Fridays between 3 and 7pm is also the time for the Fig Tree Pocket Farmer's Market. Come and check out the vendors and their locally sourced produce. You can find some lovely and unique items here.
A favourite of many is to go behind the scenes and checkout the other wildlife encounters that Lone Pine wants to share with you. Not only can you cuddle a koala but you can also get up close and personal with some of Lone Pine's other residents.
New toilets have been placed by the Birds of Prey show area which saves from having to head back over across the kangaroo enclosure as before. The hand washing stations have been upgraded to hand sanitizing stations, making it a quicker and faster process. And you will find free Wii Fi.
