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.

Me and my family visited Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary on 3 December 2016. This is a very good place for tourists and even locals to visit. Firstly, there were the koala picture session but one thing which we were not impressed with is we need to pay $25 for a normal koala photo and only for a person each.( for hugging... More

Although the park is not very big, but you can see many kinds of animals at a near distances ! Good try to feed the kangaroo! Excellent show of feeding crocodile and bird show ! Also the sheep skin cutting is very funny ! A place suitable for family to visit !

The Sanctuary was not a big set up. Of course I was not expecting a zoo and the tickets were rather pricey. So remember to purchase it online. It's cheaper.

I loved my day at the Wildlife Sanctuary. I hugged a koala and it was absolutely amazing. The food sold was the only down side, not that impressed. But the attractions themselves were an absolute treat. Highly recommended. Slightly concerned about an Aboriginal Dance show placed as part of a ´wildlife´theme park.... something to consider.

Visited Carrumbin whilst on holiday in the Gold Coast, it was fantastic. The park is full of wonderful animals and birds from all over Australia. There's Kangaroos, Koalas ,Tasmanian Devils, Wallabies and lots of different parrots , Cockatoos and birds of prey. Highlights were feeding the wild lorikeets, hand feeding the Kangaroos ,and most of all holding a Koala. There... More

We have been lucky to holiday on the Gold Coast six times and we have visited Currumbin each time. It's a fantastic day out for old and young. Currumbin pride themselves in only having Australian animals. A lot of the animals are rescued and could not manage to go back in the wild. So, get on down there and check... More

If on the Gold Coast this is a must visit for those with or without children. Don't forget you can't feed the wild birds and lizards, we saw a Chinese child feeding a lizard a huge piece of chocolate and thought it was funny the poor lizard had trouble swallowing it! Do stay to feed the lorikeets, certainly the highlight... More

This is a relatively big property - the train ride does help. Many good opportunities to admire the Koalas up close and of course cuddle with photo shoot. Kangaroos feeding area has a nice landscape. We were caught in the afternoon rain so ponchos/umbrellas are handy. Food and ice cream were of good standard.
