I visited here multiple times while living on the Gold Coast. It's a nice place to spend the afternoon and get to see some Australian wildlife. Although some sections of the park were under construction and it could have been marked better as I was left standing looking for an animal that wasn't there. The ropes course was great and... More

We had a great day at Currumbin. Loved the bird and kangaroo feeding, it was a great experience for our children. We must have gone at the right time of year because there were quite a few baby animals. I was impressed with the large number of volunteers around the park, they were all very friendly and were also full... More

The attractions were well suited for the my children. They really enjoyed feeding the kangaroos and taking pictures with the animals. The train that runs around the park was entertaining for the little ones. They loved the hands on activities at the wildlife hospital the best!

We enjoyed a lovely day exploring the native wildlife, from koala to tree kangaroos, Tasmanian Devils to rainbow lorikeets. Our admission price (booked from a local tour desk on the Gold Coast) included a Koala cuddle and photograph each. There were displays to watch as well, which were both educational and entertaining.

I took my wife there for 1st time as I had been there in 2005 with my parents - but alas, it did make for a romantic outdoor adventure as I thought it would be. Food is way over priced and service was very bad. We stood in line for 45 minutes and then another 10 after order for a... More

We had a great day here. We chose to do a VIP tour well worth the extra money. We got to go behind the scenes and pat and feed animals. I would most definitely be back.

A great day out, particularly for the kids and for those visitors from overseas who are not familiar with Australian wild life. Opportunities to get up close and personal with Kangaroos, Koalas and a small crocodile (jaws taped shut!) and a very pleasant playground for the children. The sanctuary covers a large area and although there is a miniature railway... More

Good variety of animals to see including crocs, kangaroos, snakes, birds and echidnas just to name a few. The free flight bird show and lorikeet feeding were highlights for us.

This is one of the great things in Australia to do with little kids, the wildlife is wonderful and the sanctuary is really well looked after. We also did the new Adventure Parc course which our kids loved (apparently it's 'Epic!'). Friendly staff, easy parking.

The Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary is a great place to take the whole family to see the native Australian wildlife. I brought my five-year-old and it's got to be one of the highlights of our Gold Coast vacation. We got up close and cuddled a koala for a photos, fed the kangaroos and even held a Wedge-tailed eagle. There are shows... More
