Come to Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary to feed Rainbow Lorikeets, a wildly colorful type of Australia parrot. Alex Griffiths originally founded the sanctuary in 1947 to prevent these birds from eating his flower plantation. Today, visitors provide twice-daily feeding to giant flocks of the free-flying parrots. Navigate on a Segway the rest of the 27 hectares (67 acres), where you can cuddle with koalas, hang out with kangaroos, and observe crocodiles and Tasmanian Devils. With our custom trip planner, Currumbin attractions like Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • From Coolangatta we went by bus No. 700. Close to bus stop and shop stores, bought sweets, sandwiches and drinks. Ticket is admission of net purchases, entrance on the right lane from trip Advisor. Have been instructed to also send an email with the voucher. In koala and taken away. And one $ 25. Digital download photo add $2. Number of price changes bring cameras shoot in, one plan. I think in time for the show to go along is the most efficient time.

  • it was a cool activity, lots of challenges and fun. highly recommended to all ages. it is located at the middle of a sanctuary, which makes it unique.  more »
  • For me the best parks I have visited in Australia. In the first place is a large park, which allows the animals have room to be happy ... Then you can interact without any problems either with the kangaroos, birds or other animals, and also take a forum with a Koala. I was pleasantly surprised with the size of the Park, with the organization. Recommend, recommend.

  • Great place to take kids. Many animals to look at and touch and feed. The new section is really exciting for kids and you can get close to the animals. A really good thing is that there are a lot of old growth trees which provide continuous shade so you don't have to walk around in the sun and you get a really natural feel. Information about the train could be better and longer opening hours for some of the cafes would be helpful
  • Lots to see, requiring lots of walking. Kids had a good time. Some unique new animals in lost world that you don't regularly see. Many shows and activities, all of which we saw we're really good and worthwhile. Lots included with entry price, but as is more and more the case these days, many things are an additional cost over entry. Food and drinks as with any theme park or similar attraction is outrageously expensive and mostly junk. If you smoke, your up for even more walking. Despite the entire thing being outdoors over a massive area, seems they can only fit a single designated smoking area that requires basically exiting and then re-entering the park. For me, that was a massive annoyance! Before you rain down the hate, I don't mind not smoking around attractions or where lots of people are, but there are numerous other opportunities to cater for a more practical accommodation of smokers.
  • I really enjoyed the open walking pattern of this wildlife center! Plus, it's one of the few places in Australia that allow you to hold a koala (with proper supervision, of course). They're also home to one of the best animal hospitals around! It's definitely worth a visit if you're int he area
  • A loot of walking tracks with few animals in between - had more fun spotting the lizards around the place than the actual display animals. We were there on a day that the lorikeets decided they were getting a feed elsewhere. Can't blame the staff. Staff were very friendly. Food at kiosk was limited to burgers, chips and nuggets. Nothing remotely alternative for the semi health conscious.
  • Our best date morning yet! Every Tuesday we find a new spot for breakky and a walk after and the wildlife sanctuary is perfect. Coffee and feed the birds at 8am then run around all the shows, learn to protect and adore Australia's beautiful wildlife. Thanks crew we loved our day there and a special thanks to the lady who gave us a little tour Rosemary 🤗
