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.

  • This was one of the highlights of our trip! The bird of prey show is very enjoyable and the fact that you can feed and interact with the kangaroos at no extra cost is awesome! You really get to see all the animals that are only found in Australia and the Koalas are adorable. This was money well spent! Loved every minute! And they do such great work with injured and sick animals!
  • That animals are so friendly. And there's a convenient train that takes you around the sanctuary. The bird show was also really amazing!
  • This is a necessary experience for tourists. Holding a koala and petting other indigenous animals is fun and educational. Very eco and preservation conscious, which is important. At the end of the day it is little more than a small zoo, but the presentations and mission are commendable. Offers some unique souvenirs and keepsakes.
  • Loved it, amazing experiences, so many exotic animals to hold, feed and take photos with. Koalas were #1 on my list. Amazing.
  • Lots of shows to entertain the kids. Not too expensive. Great to take foreigners, lots of Australian animals to cosy up to. Koala photos only $25 😃
