I keep going back with my kids. It's a fun day out, love all the shows in particular the free flight bird show. And feeding the Lorakeets at the end of the day. Note sometimes they don't always come when the weather is good as they have a lot of natural foods available to them in the wild. If it... More

I went to Currumbin with my Polish girlfriend to show her the Australian wildlife ranging from Kangaroos, Koala's, Wombats etc and she walked away at the end of the day 100% satisfied with her experience and it is still so far the highlight of her trip. The staff were very nice, helpful and always had a smile on their faces.... More

As we (sadly) leave the Gold Coast, Currumbin Sanctuary has my heart. Possibly the most immersive wildlife experience you will ever have from cuddling koalas to feeding kangaroos... I love how this is NOT a zoo and the animals hangout with you like it ain't no thang. The staff is super friendly and helpful and clearly adore their animals. You... More

On a recent trip to the Gold Coast with relatives from England we took them to the Sanctuary and enjoyed a few hours there looking at all the different Aussie animals and reptiles . The main reason for going their and the main priority was for the ladies from England to have their photos taken with the koalas. They were... More

A must go place to see all the Australian animals. Animal shows are interesting and candid. You cab take photos with the koalas there too. Although the place is not very large, there are many animals to see.

Extremely disappointed :( Definitely not worth the $160 my family had to pay to get in. The place is run down, the animals looked tired, there was one enclosure where the only animal we could see what dead. Would much rather pay the bit extra and take my kids to Australia Zoo. Will never be coming back!! The only thing... More

We went here to see the lorikeets in the afternoon, however we thought we would check out the park. We went to go feed kangaroos, we arrived late in the afternoon and I think the kangaroos had already been fed by lots of people as they were not interested in our food. We then saw the Bird Show and the... More

My husband and I spent an enjoyable afternoon at Currumbin Wildlife Santuary. Neither of us had been there for at least 25 years (since we were children) and we were pleased to find that it has grown and changed, while still maintaining features we expected. We particularly enjoyed the bird flight show, crocodile feeding and the rainbow lorikeet feeding. The... More
