Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary is located in the Brisbane suburb of Fig Tree Pocket in Queensland, Australia. Founded in 1927, it is the World's oldest and largest Koala Sanctuary. The name originates from a lone hoop pine that had been planted by the Clarkson family, the first owners of the 4.6 hectare site. The sanctuary began with two koalas called Jack and Jill. Lone Pine became known internationally during the Second World War when Americans, including Douglas MacArthur's wife visited the park to view the native Australian animals.
