Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary is More Australian, More Natural, More Fun...

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.

For the gate price we thought it wasn't good value.The birds we only fed early morning and late afternoon,however the kangaroos were entertaining and the train ride was good.The volunteers did a wonderful job explaining about the animals.Maybe OK a family with children however you can buy tickets much cheaper on the internet.

Highly recommended for seeing our native animals. Great train ride for kids. Great place to catch up with others. Only negative is the cost of having a photo with a koala didnt do this a bit expensive for a large family. Bring your own food, expensive and tasteless.

We had a great time here. If it's Koalas your after then this is the place! The park is clean and very well shaded which makes for a pleasant visit. A good selection of exhibits and live shows to keep everyone entertained. Very reasonably priced for a park of this standard.

Took the kids here while we were on holidays with groupon vouchers. There were so many attractions close and they didnt even let us know before we went in. It would have been nice if the cashier told us that there were a fair few attractions closed. We won;t be going back here again.

We enjoyed a nice day beginning with the mini train ride around the Sanctuary to get a feel of the place and ending with the Lorikeet feeding near the entrance. In between we had some nice encounters with native animals, watched the sheep shearing show which was excellent, watched the aboriginal culture show which was very educational and enjoyable and...

I took my grandchildren to the wildlife sanctuary when the visited. They had a great day feeding the lorikeets, holding a baby crocodile, hand feeding kangaroos and emus, they even caught a water dragon and riding on the train.
