Description: 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.

Just took a group of overseas visitors to Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary and I am sorry to say it is looking a little tired. I understand this Sanctuary is run by a not for profit organisation and there are a number of very helpful volunteers working throughout the Sanctuary but there were some signs that there probably needs an injection of...

This was my second, but not last visit to the wildlife sanctuary. The first time my grandson was a year old this was for his second birthday. The sanctuary is child friendly with plenty for them to see. It is not too big and makes a good day out without a young child becoming too restless. Take your own snacks... More

This was a fantastic spot especially if you have young children. It is not too big, but there is a train that does go around the sanctuary. you can get up close and pat kangaroos, and have you photo taken with a Koala.

What a great place for the family to visit on the Gold Coast! Great for a great day out getting back to nature. The staff and prices are affordable compared to the theme parks. Definitely a must do when visiting the GC.

Public transport to front door or parking right opposite, although it is no longer free. Cost $5 for the day but proceeds go to the sanctuary. Lots to see and a variety for both young & older children. Great train ride which gives you an overview of what's to see. Go early to see the animal feeding. The bird &... More

Love going to this tourist attraction, as there is good parking, lots of leafy trees for shade and relatively small numbers of people. Lots to choose from without the hustle and bustle of big tourist attractions

Clapped out. This park was once wonderful, that is until hopeless management and accounting turned the park into a theme park prices sanctuary. Many exhibits are closed or out of service, the price of entry is a ripoff, you can do the bird feeding FOC. The management won't listen to locals and patrons who'd like to take family and friends...
