You can purchase a ticket to see the Sanctuary as well as the do the tree top adventure, but we've seen been to plenty of sanctuaries before so on this occasion, we were only interested in the tree top high ropes course. Firstly, the... More

Not the easiest place to get to unless you weather Surfers Paradise, but once you are there shuttle connections from your hotel or downtown Surfers are reasonable and easy. The Sanctuary is a true experience in Australian wildlife. The expanse of the Park is what gives the place its flavour. Ibis and ghekko's are everywhere. There is a large pond... More

we were disappointed about the reburbishments and lack of signs, we walked for ages only to have to turn back because of reburbs, very frustrating and the price of food was horrendous, $8 for a hotdog with no onion or cheese

So glad that we managed to slot in the last day for Currumbin wildlife sanctuary! Although we missed the early morning feeding for the wild Lorikeets, there was a later feeding at 4 pm. Made a small donation for an empty plate and there was free flow of nectar for the Lorikeets. That was my favourite part of the park.... More

It took us almost one hour to get there from Surfers Paradise but not sure if it was worth it. Same animals spread in the park. Kangaroos looked tired and uninterested. We didn't get to see any wombat! Little dragons wandering in the park were bigger than crocodiles. Luckily I used a voucher instead of paying full price.

No birds in sight but it might have been the wrong time of day. If birds had been around would have been more fun.

We visited the park and half of it was closed for refurbishment - explains why the tickets were cheap!!! But the sections that were open were great and very child friendly Much more open then a zoo, and the Bird Free Flight show was awesome!!! A lot of the tracks are not sealed, and can be a little rough when... More

An excellent venue to celebrate a 3 year old's birthday. So much to see and do! Plenty of locations to set yourself up for the day or to use the train to go from one activity/show to the other. Not enough hours in the day! If you are an RACQ member, make use of your card to enjoy free parking... More

This sanctuary is owned by the National Trust of Queensland, if you have an interest in Australian wild life visit here. Wild lorikeets , and birds of prey as well as other Australian animals, the park is a large area, but has a small train with several stops so you can see the area. This is a full day visit,... More
