This is a wonderful family day with lots of informative shows and displays. Great to be able to interact with the kangaroos and wallabies.

We were visiting Gold Coast to see our twin grandsons aged two. The family already had a 'membership' and were keen for us to visit too and share the boys' joy at the different animals. We were pleasantly surprised. The place is exceptionally well run, and we decided to take the annual membership which gives us free admission to National... More

CWS is a great place. The shows are great, the volunteers/staff are very knowledgeable and it's a sure fire way to keep the kids & teens entertained for a half day - a quick train ride around the park fixes everything. Koalas and kangaroos that are very happy for long cuddles in their open enclosure. It's an old park and... More

What a fantastic place to take overseas visitors for a Aussie... More

This is a wonderful place...crocodiles, koalas,kangaroos, birds,lovely surroundings, and excellent shows. We recommend these in particular. They are all great and very informative. you can save money on entry fee by using the coupons avaible in many Gold coast brochures which have admission for adults at children's prices. They also quite often have a $20/pp deal on Groupon. its on... More

The weather didn't play its part the day we visited the sanctuary and to be honest it didn't really matter. To be able to pet a kangaroo in such an open and inviting atmosphere was fantastic. Being able to visit the animal hospital and see how long different animals have been there and why and watch the vets do their... More

We were lucky to find an online ticket for 4 adults for $80 (plus $5 for parking). Was it worth $20 each, for sure. Would it be worth $50 each as normally priced at the gate, absolutely not. Exhibits are extremely spaced out (I'm not fat so don't think I'm a hater of exercise) and there's not a particularly vast... More
