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.

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.

I last went to Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary quite a few years ago. It used to be an open park where birds would land on you. Unfortunately for me, that's what I was expecting. The sanctuary has been greatly enhanced, but it no longer feels like being out in nature (and that's my expectations talking more than logic). We saw no... More

Went with family. The birds happily fly all over you at feeding time (if you have the bowl) I was terrified so gave it to my little sis!😉 however I lived the whole experience nxt the photos I got of us all holding the koala was lovely. Beautiful place for all ages x

The sanctuary has come a long way in comparison to my visit as a child. The lush green gardens are full of bird life. And you might be lucky to see a lizard soaking up some sunshine. The tree top walk is brilliant. My family and I enjoyed every bit of it. It makes the entry fee worthwhile. The animals... More

Visited the Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary's 'Tree Top Challenge' as a class. So much fun! Really recommend it to anyone who enjoys flying from the trees, or go with friends to build their trust and relationship. A wonderful day was had by all.

This is a lovely wildlife park where you can wander around or catch the little train and view all the animals. Have your photo taken with a Koala and pat the Kangaroos. There is also a bird flight show and feeding of Pelicans and Eels. Great variety and friendly staff and volunteers. Privately owned and well run. Don't miss it... More

We visited in Jul 2015. I can see why the overseas visitors would love this place, great experiences with Australian native animals and great at catering for all ages. However, coming from Melbourne and having visited Healeaville Sanctuary on many occasions, it came in a poor second. The rainbow lorikeets were beautiful, BUT BEWARE! Never have an ice cream outside... More

We were lucky enough to have a perfect day, weather wise, to visit Currumbin given it was the middle of winter. We really enjoyed all the displays that were open, although there were a few that were closed for maintenance/renovation. Unfortunately the crocodiles decided not to perform that day, but I understand it is the time of year that they... More

We had a fantastic trip to Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary last week. We were leaving Surfers Paradise and off to the airport and the staff were very happy to store our luggage in a secure location. My two girls (ages 4 1/2 and nearly 2 yrs) Loved feeding the kangaroos, feeding the birds and holding a snake! Fantastic facilities, clean and... More

I spent a few hours here with my partner and we had such a great time wondering around the wildlife, watching the crocodile show and Koalas being fed. The highlight by far was the Birds of Flight show- huge birds come whizzing past your head and beautiful parrots come flying into the arena, we loved this show. There was lots... More
