Owner description: 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.

We were visiting some friends in Australia and the took us here. We are so glad they did! It was the highlight of the whole trip. Went to all the shows, animal feelings, and got up close to kangaroos, birds and a picture with a koala! There is a train to help transport you to the different areas, but walking... More

Currumbin is amazing. My friends and I did the whole high ropes course and had a blast. It was very safe and one who is in relatively good shape and not afraid of heights would be able to do all 3 levels. The zoo is also very neat with a petting area with emus and kangaroos and a lot of... More

After many years of not going along to see the wildlife sanctuary, it was lovely to go back with our young grandchildren so they could encounter all that the park has to offer. Ranging from the lovable koalas, howling dingoes and huge crocodiles we all enjoyed this wonderful day out. The train ride was also enjoyed by everyone. The food... More

We visited here using a voucher from Groupon so we certainly got value for money saving over 50% on the entry price. There's a lot to see so make sure you have plenty of time for your visit and on entry you get a leaflet with feeding times so that you don't miss anything. There are plenty of staff to... More

Loved the animals especially the koalas, the rainbow loriikeets birds are worth seeing and do take a go at feeding them. Maybe put a cap or a hat on your head. Food is good to. Good Souvenior shop.

It just ticks all the boxes for a great day out. It's so big and there is so much to see. Huge variety of animals and activities. The staff are very informative, I learned so much from them and you can tell they love their animals.

What was I thinking? I thought we would walk through this place in an hour or so but it had alot more to offer if you really take the time to take it all in. We watched a few shows (Bird show, Aboringinal etc) and had alot of photo opportunities with all the animals.
