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.

Started off with a kaola photo then blinky bill show after a small train ride to one of 4 stations. Eagles and other birds of prey show ..awesome. Wildlife and tassie tiger's all good. Lorekeets feeding at end of day perfect. Staff very helpful and informative. $8 charge for parking no dramas. Great day.

I didn't realise this place was so big. There was plenty to see and do, lovely for the children to have contact with the animals. Would definitely recommend to other families.

CWS provides a relaxed natural bushland setting where everyone can see many native Australian animals and birds, they will never encounter in their daily lives -either because the creatures are nocturnal or because their existence is being threatened out in the wild. The 'birds of prey' show - wonderful birds- is one of my favourites, but there are many other... More

We took 2 two year olds and a 6 year old to Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary and we all had a great day!!! The shows were entertaining and informative! We learnt a lot about wildlife and conservation. Staff were friendly and there was lots to see and do. The train ride for the kids was a highlight as well :) Unfortunately... More

Currumbin wildlife sanctuary will probably take up the full day if you take it easy, but much less if you're the sort to work quickly through the enclosures. There were quite a few things that could have been better: kangaroo feeding was the most pricey around ($4 a bag. Dreamworld charges only $1), and with so many visitors, the kangaroos... More

Compared to other zoos, there were not much to see or do. The kangaroo feeding was unique but as there were too many people feeding them, they were too full to show interest to those that came bit later. Some of the visitors thought the kangaroos were their pets and did not move away so others have chance to take... More

Spent a nice day amongst well looked after animals, most of whom were more than happy to share a photo with us. Liked the fact that they were not perturbed by humans around them . The kangaroos were actually striking a pose : ) Adorable koalas . Bird show was good. Farm one could have been better . Liked the... More

Get there early (8am) or stay in afternoon til 4pm for the lorikeet feeding show, was amazing to have them stand on my plate, arm and even head LOL Used the train to get around as sore feet after all the other places we had been to, was ok but pretty slow and crowded on the day we were there...
