Just a good view of small animals and birds. There are no big cats like lion tiger etc. Too much walking inside the park.

The staff and volunteers at Currumbin went out of their way to be kind and super helpful to my kids. They were patient, informative and really lovely. My kids loved Boss Hog the big salt water crocodile, and the free flight bird show. The lorikeet feeding was fantastic too. Remember to bring some extra cash for photos with the animals.... More

I had the most fantastic day at the reserve! I had never seen a koala bear before and the up close encounter that I was able to have with the animal was incredible. I also enjoyed the crocodile show and feeding the kangaroos. Overall I would recommend visiting the reserve to anyone!

I am not sure why this park was getting bad reviews We arrived at 8 AM and had a very interesting and amazing time feeding the birds. I have three children 5, 7 and nine years of age and not only did we feed the birds we got to have a picture with a crocodile. This was all free before... More
