Voted one of the Gold Coast's most popular tourist destinations, Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary is the crown jewel of the National Trust of Australia (Queensland) [NTAQ] properties. As one of Queensland's earliest nature-based tourist destinations, the Sanctuary is a physical embodiment of everything the NTAQ represents: dedication to conserving our nation's Indigenous, natural and historic heritage and culture. With Blinky Bill now present for daily shows, the amazing viewing experiences available at the Wildlife Hospital and hundreds of native Australian animals on display in natural bushland and rainforest settings, Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary is the ultimate holiday adventure for the entire family.

We got to currumbin early and had a great day. Feeding the lorikeets is a great experience, bird show was fantastic as well as the croc show. Definitely recommend a visit and its one of the more affordable parks to visit on the gold coast.

An amazing place to visit! Lots of animals to see and interact with, plenty of photo opportunities- without having to buy the official park ones (only exception being the koalas) Well presented displays, all well explained and informative. All the staff were friendly and very helpful. Would recommend a full day here so you don't miss anything!

While attending the Wildlife Park, we jumped on the train from one area to the next. The surrounding gardens were terrible and bland. Looked rundown and in need of mulch and attractive landscaping. The water was stagnant also and didn't make for a good look. Bird show was good as was the reptile show. Other than that, we were sadly... More

I saw everything I could want to here and was in tourist full aussie animal immersion. The cafe made great hot chocolate and sausage rolls and there were vending machines park wide which was very convenient.

We visited the sanctuary with our 12-year old and 8-year old kids as our youngest said he was the only one yet to feed the kangaroos. The place is still well maintained as the last time we came was 8 years ago. The highlights are the koalas, kangaroos and the flying bird show. Tips: make sure print out the coupons... More

This was a great day out. We love the shows and kangaroo feeding. The kids love the playgrounds and the whole family took a Koala picture with my husband holding a cute little koala. Lorikeet feeding would be dramatic but on the day we went it was kinda a low season for the lorikeets.

We visited Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves . The sanctuary has some good sloping walks, so good comfortable shoes and socks are recommended and the toilets and shops are easy to locate. We had great fun on the train rides as well
