Paint & Sip with Koalas


Book Now

Paint, sip and laugh under the stars

Enjoy a drink on arrival, followed by a professional photo with one of our cuddly Koalas before the 2 hour paint class commences.

With an emphasis on ‘fun’ (not fine) art, Queensland artist Jaie Mauger and her crew will expertly help guests to unleash their inner Picasso as they create their very own Koala portrait. This event commences at 5.30pm but why not meet your friends earlier at our Sanctuary markets, open from 4pm.

Guests will receive a delicious mini platter served with a glass of wine, bubbles or beer as they paint, sip, laugh and relax in a tranquil outdoor Sanctuary setting. The night will be infectious communal fun where art will wash away the dust of everyday life and a perfect opportunity to get together with friends and family for a fun time and helps us paint a better future for Koalas.
