We went there just to finish off a beach day and with a small donation we were able to feed the lorikeets. It was excellent it reminded me of Trafalgar Square as a kid when you could feed the pigeons. It was great cheap fun.

Currumbin is a fun place for children of all ages. You can hold koala bears, feed lorikeets, and visit kangaroos. Check out the aboriginal dance and bird shows, both are very entertaining.
