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 visited Currumbin on a rainy day, but even the light rain didn't prevent us from having a great time. We put on our rain ponchos and had our photos taken with a koala, fed the kangaroos (one of them kept attacking my poncho and trying to chew it, but once I walked away, it was fine), and saw all...

It's good place to go but very highly priced....... I would love to go back again but not for what they charge now...... It's way too much money for roaming in nature...

We do like going here but I think some parts could do with a makeover, looking a little tired. There is a (newish) animal hospital too, interesting to see.

The best part of the Currumbin Sanctuary was the lorikeet feeding (which happens at 8am and 4pm very day) And its FREE!!! You then pay to go through the rest of the Sanctuary - which unfortunately wasn't all that impressive. I suppose it would be a great experience for non-Australian tourists - as its full of Aussie animals. The 'shows'... More

When we arrived it was just in time for the kids to have a photo with a baby crocodile which they thought was pretty awesome. Great staff around always happy to answer questions, loved the Koalas and we got to see a Tasmanian Devil. Animals look like they are well taken care of and what amazing work the sanctuary does....

Going to the sanctuary is easy as the bus stop is located just across from our hotel in Broadbeach. We took bus #700 and got there in about 30 minutes. You can pay cash as you ascend the bus. The stop for the sanctuary is very closed to the entrance. If you are worry about missing the stop, the nice... More

Had a great day! Not very crowded, enjoyed the shows. We paid a bit more and did the ropes course and it was worth it. Like everything else in the park the food was crazy expensive, but they didn't seem to mind if you took your own food into the park.
