I worked at Currumbin Sanctuary as a teenager in the retail side of things and always enjoyed the feel of the park, it is a peaceful part of the Gold Coast. I was browsing groupon and found a great deal they have at the moment $20 per person, since my boyfriend has never been we decided to spend Sunday there.... More

It's got just about everything, koalas, tassie devils, wombats, crocodiles, and for me the highlight was the Australiana show. These guys could tour with the show, we were in stitches.

Koalas, kangaroos, birds Tasmanian Devils, loved it all. A little on the expensive side when you add all the extras, but as a once in a lifetime visit to the Gold Coast, it's a must do. Loved the size of the park, the staff were attentive and very friendly and definitely worth a visit.

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
