Had a great day out at Currumbin - wasn't expecting too much and our expectations were exceeded. Wished we had time to do the high ropes too which looked fantastic - would definitely do that if we go back. Enjoyed the whole park, particularly being able to get close to the kangaroos and for us, the first time we had... More

We were on a family holiday and the children enjoyed watching and being able to feed some of the animals. There was plenty to do and the staff were very informative and explained things about the animals and birds. A great day out and totally recommended.

Recently visited the Currumbin Sanctuary - wanting to take my daughter to experience one of my most favorite childhood memories: feeding the lorikeets. It didnt disappoint. What a wonderful establishment - and non-for-profit to boot. This is a truly all-Australian, must-do activity. Now, brace yourself, here are the conditions: you HAVE to do the bird feeding which happens each day... More

Quite a bus trip from Surfers but as tourists we thoroughly enjoy using local travel. Didn't quite make it for the bird feeding but still had a great morning there. My grandson loved being able to hold a Koala and have his photo taken with it. The train ride is good and lots of friendly kangaroos to pat and feed.... More

This is my first trip to the Sanctuary in a very long time. Firstly it's a great day out especially for the kids. It's a fantastic place to see a variety of animals, and if you want to pet a kangaroo it's the best. A whole enclosure for you to touch roos of all types and sizes and get pics... More

The keepers in wildlife park is so friendly and helpful. My 2yo 1st time encounter with koala & Kangaroos, those animals that cant find in Malaysia. Although my gal not really understand English well, but they do show her the way to pat and get close to Koala and Kangaroo. Thanks for everything Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, u all gave my... More

Got there just before 3.00pm and was told if we waited 20 minutes or so we would go in half price, great customer relations, so we had a coffee and got amongst the wildlife. Got to see the amazing animals, and to get amongst the kangaroos as we did was great. The staff were all friendly and helpful, started to... More

It was a great experience to visit this place as we can encounter directly with kangaroos and koalas. My kid love it. We fed kangaroos and there apis a lot of kangaroos, some are big kangaroos and female kangaroos taking its baby in its pouch. We took picture hugging koala. The place is quite big but there is a small... More

We had a wonderful day out here. The little train is a great way to get around and you can walk around the kangaroos and pet them. Very clean and well maintained and the staff working there are very friendly. We saw the biggest salt water crocodile in captivity, he is huge and weighs over a tonne. Lots to do... More

We've visited the sanctuary at least half a dozen times over the years and these days just go to the bird feeding.A gold coin donation for a plate of gooey bird feed and watch them lap it up.Never disappointing.The rest of the sanctuary is an extra cost but from memory has always been a great day out for all ages.
