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.

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.

I love animals so to come here on our travels was a bonus. We loved viewing all the animals & loved the koalas. Didn't stay to pat them as the line was too long but later on we found some more in a compound. 3 orphans & the female who adopted them that was on the news. We watched their... More

We went here so our son could hold a Koala - there were no queues when we arrived so straight in and $25 later - great pic. Such a net place to walk around - go earlier before it gets too hot. Dr Doo Lots was interesting.I loved all the lizards that are running around everywhere.Paid $10 for parking but... More

The park needs smartening up, particularly the garden areas but still worth a visit to all Gold Coast holiday makers as it's a long way to visit the Australian Zoo. However we didn't like the fact that there is a $10 parking fee, over and above the entrance fee. Not very tourist friendly at all! There is a small train... More
