Come to Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary to feed Rainbow Lorikeets, a wildly colorful type of Australia parrot.

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.

  • Koalas, Kangaroos, Tasmanian Devils, and 100s of others of Australia's finest creatures. But the highlight was definitely Boss Hogg, the saltwater croc - big respect! A great day and very good value f...  more »
  • The family had a great day here. We underestimated just how big this park is and didn't get to see everything in one day. With so many shows and exhibits we had to pick and choose which ones to see. T...  more »
  • The cost to enter this sanctuary for a family is ridiculous. Two adults, 14, 12 and a 4 year old $175.00 wtf. You going to see Australian native animals that you can see in any other state. Extra cost...  more »

  • Brought the family (myself, husband and our 11 and 13 year old) here on Father's Day. We all thoroughly enjoyed the day. So much to see and do. Great for all ages. Staff and volunteers were very friendly. Food was great with a few different areas to eat at. Train ride around the park was enjoyable. Animal hospital was interesting to observe how they care for the sick animals. I would highly.recommend a visit here.
  • Went with my 2 year old and another family friends and had a blast. Great exposure to lots of native animals and not too crowded. Stuff and volunteers were all great and super friendly.
  • This place was way bigger than I expected. I had a great day out with my young family. There is lots to see and everything is nicely spread out so lots of walking. My son loved the train. All the staff were friendly. The staff aren't Steve Irwin and the prices are expensive, both entry and food.
  • Nice small place to see lots of different animals from Australia with a few good shows as well. It's great that you can pet kangaroos at any time. Lots of picture opportunities holding the animals and you don't have to necessarily but some of the pictures. Above all, it's good to now that the money you pay is going towards the conservation of these animals.
  • Loved this place! Animals are well looked after and are kept in spacious enclosures. Great opportunity to get close to kangaroos, koalas and snakes.
