Description: Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary is More Australian, More Natural, More Fun...
Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary is More Australian, More Natural, More Fun with more than 1,000 native Australian animals on display in natural bushland and rainforest settings, Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary provides our guest with the chance to interact with our amazing Australian native wildlife. The Sanctuary offers a world of discovery through fascinating wildlife shows such as the Free flight bird show, Australiana Sheep shearing show and the Crocodile behaviours show as well as our displays. Kids love the Blinky Bill and Dr Do Lots shows or they can play at Wild Island, an outdoor adventure playground. Currumbin is one of the only places on the Gold Coast where you can see a daily Aboriginal dance show. For the more adventurous why not try the Adventure Parc High ropes course with 80 treetop challenges over 5 course or book a guided Segway tour around the sanctuary. There are many opportunities to have your picture taken with one of our beautiful animals, there is just so much to see and do at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary fun for all the family.

Dear CWS, I rated you 'Terrible' but this is a terrible understatement, had there been a 'Very Terrible" option I would have pick that instead. I would rather give birth to an echidna than spend another single minute or dollar at Currumbin. No joke, I think the medical bills for the vaginal reconstruction surgery would probably be cheaper than the... More

As a family we all enjoyed the general entertainment at the Sanctuary. By lunch time they all had lunch except I only had fruit salad. Gluten free food was only available at the main eatery (at the entrance). It was approx 2 pm by now, and I hadn't had lunch, except fruit salad. At the main eatery I was offered... More

This zoo is probably the best I've been to. We got to hold onto snake, crocs and koalas and if you're there at 7:30 you can feed the thousands of rainbow lorikeets which was great fun!

Great place to visit on your way to Surfers Paradise from the airport. Especially if you arrive in the morning and hotel check-in isn't until afternoon. Adult price is $49, child $32. Parking is $8 for the whole day, or $4 if you arrive after 12 pm. Lorikeets encounter and feeding is at 8 am or at 4 pm. Crocodile... More

It's a moderate-sized zoo, which is nice, but the highlight is the kangaroos! There's a penned-off area where you walk in and they're just roaming around. You can purchase some food and feed the kangaroos. You can take as many photos as you want (all free). I have an amazing selfie with a very photogenic kangaroo. They're so tame and... More

My boyfriend and I (both 16) visited here not too long ago, and can say it's definitely fun for all ages. Many animals to exhibit that are well looked after. Although we did start to get bored near the end of the day, so we decided that next time we'd go, we'd get the after 3pm tickets, that are much... More

This was really my favourite place visited during our trip to the Gold Coast. I found the park well worth a visit, there were plenty of opportunities for close encounters with the animals for our children, photo opportunities, and lovely shaded paths to walk around under the trees. The kids enjoyed the little train, and the reptile section with the... More
