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.

Definitely recommend currumbin. I've always heard great things about this place so we finally went on our latest trip to Gold Coast. It's a short drive and totally worth it. All the kids had a fabulous time & loved the little train.

Thoroughly loved this santuary. Could see the volunteers and staff all had real passion for the care and welfare of the animals that lived there. Was lovely to see all the wildlife seemed really content and even where involved with shows or talks still had minds of their own and weren't afraid to do the exact opposite of what they... More

My family and I have an annual pass and this is a great family destination. The upgrades and developments have been transformational to the Sanctuary! There is plenty to do for young and old and great educational shows. The staff are courteous and there is even a place to charge ones mobile phones. Great play park for the kids. If... More

We made the visit while staying at Surfers Paradise. It was a little over a 1/2 day drive from where we were. Parking is $10 but if you go early enough you might get free 2 hr street parking - we did. We went early on a weekday, which I would recommend as I'm sure it could get quite hot... More

Our resort booked it and it was adults so kids prices so that made it very affordable. I booked the possum encounter as well, which was a bit of a hassle. We had to book it trough the phone but if you followed the menu I would just get a voicemail. So we tried other options in the menu and... More

CWS was a great trip out with my family. What I would say is that it is quite expensive (two adults and toddler free of charge was $70, a family is approx $140). Taking pictures with Koalas was an extra charge which we didn't do. I would say to get to the park early morning as there are quite a... More

We finally got to do Segway tour today after a failed attempt when we hadn't read the fine print and our son was too light! Currumbin had been exceptional in giving us a few months months to grow the few kgs he needed to be heavy enough to operate the Segway! We had Adam as tour guide today and he... More

My friend and I had a fantastic day out here. There was so many animals to keep you enthralled. My favourite were the smelly koalas of course because there was a little baby koala clinging to its mother and using her as a climbing frame. It was definitely more of a sanctuary so there was minimal enclosures used but don't... More

Went on a guided tour with Venice day tours. Currumbin Wildlife and Tropical fruit farm. Both were great. Our tour guide Guy was very informative and had a great sense of humor. Great day must see koalas and hang with the kangaroos. Literally go in and lay with them.

I took my two grandsons there and my daughter also came along. We enjoyed it a lot. The bird show was great. The show they have indoors was fun also for the kids. We fed the kangaroos which was a good experience for the kids.
