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.

Went there about 8am, the feeding of Lorikeet Feeding started, you don't need a ticket to enter the sanctuary to do the feeding, just donate some money :) In the sanctuary there are many shows, easy to get around too as there is a small train service around the sanctuary every 20 mins or so. We had some family photos... More

Took a family of four with myself and partner. Luckily got discount coupons via NRMA website which saved half of the entry price. Even though we got discount coupons we still had to pay $10 for parking. It would have been discount parking if we were with RACQ but because we lived just over the border our NRMA membership wasn't... More

Went with grandkids using a deal on Groupon which was $20 a person, kids 3 and under free. We packed our lunch, snacks and drinks and took them with us. The kids had a wonderful time looking at all the animals, feeding parrots, feeding kangaroos ( although they were pretty full), playing on the playground, riding the free train, watching... More

This place is awesome. We just spent the day here and took our 2 year old who absolutely loved it! Being able to get so up close with the kangaroos, ducks and pigeons was her favourite. She was even able to stand with me next to the tawny frog mouth owl, a koala, and also gave a gold coin to... More

Great park with lots of wildlife you can get up close and personal with. Croc Show was great along with the kangaroo enclosure where you can feed and pat the Kangaroos.

The main purpose of this place is the sanctuary and animal hospital and here it does an extremely good job. However with that in mind I was very disappointed in the enclosures where the animals are kept as they are in need of updating and renewing. However it was particularly nice to be able to see the kangaroos so close... More

The place is so good that it takes you very closer to nature particularly the parrot show is very nicely presented. One can view Kangaroos and many other animals and birds in their natural conditions. Well maintained and clean place and one of the few sanctuary worth visiting to see the birds and animals in their natural habitat.

The property is really large. It's a great day out and about. I did think it was expensive entry. However the grounds are lovely, plenty of animals to see, you can feed the kangaroos and pat them in a giant open pen. It really is a beautiful place.

After theme park overload we took our children here to have a more gentle day out, and the experience was great. We took in the free flight bird show, checked out (and fed) the animals, walked some short bush trails, and best of all did the behind the scenes tour with Claudette who showed us through where the injured animal...
