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 had a great morning at the Sanctuary. There is heaps to do and see. The park is clean and well planned out with lots of shows and animals to see. The train ride was a hit with my children. Wear walking shoes!

We went here with the kids on our holiday to the Gold Coast and really enjoyed it. Great opportunity to see Australian wildlife that you wouldn't see otherwise and well set out with a train and kids tree + slide for family groups. We payed for the Koala photo ($23 for a hold + photo). This is quite cool, you... More

Decided to stop in on our way back to Gold Coast airport, it's about a 10 minute drive. Just wish we had more time to mooch around. We spent a couple of hours only, we would go back next time and spend more time. My Nephew got to to hold a Koala. The Currumbin Sanctuary is so natural and very... More

From the moment you walk through the gate you feel like you are out in the wild. The sanctuary has a great variety of animals and attractions to walk around and see. If you want you can catch the train to get your bearings of the park and then get off and walk. It is very peaceful and allows you... More

My husband and I had a free day while at the Gold Coast so decided to visit this park. It's quite large so we spent 4 hours there- first wandering around, then had lunch, then saw the croc talk, Bird show, Aussie show and Aboriginal dancing. Lots of open space with kangaroos lazing about, a few large walk in aviaries,... More

This place was great! Interactive and fun! You can interact with many of the animals - the wedge-tail eagle even brushed my bald spot as it whooshed by! Got to pat a kangaroo and the shearer (Jim?) had some of us on stage for a laugh and a pat of his dog, Pearl. Easy parking for free on the street.... More

Highly recommend this place! If you are an animal lover this place is for you. The staff were very friendly and helpful. You can tell the staff enjoy their job and love the animals. Very clean and tidy. So many animals to see and wonderful experiences to have. We got all of our photos for the day. Feeding the Kangaroos... More
