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.

  • To Australia, whether it's a local tour or a self-help tour, this is where the Shan Shan is wild, with a fixed flight to eat every morning and evening, to take pictures with Shan Shan.

  • We recently visited here on a trip to QLD. I was lucky enough to get our tickets cheaper by pre purchasing them on the website. $29 each instead of $49.95. It was a really nice park that was very well...  more »

  • This place has grown heaps over the years into an amazing place to bring kids and visitors. The passion of the staff and volunteers are contagious, and the learning experience for adults and kids alike is priceless. There is a very cute train for those preferring not to walk between the areas (it can be a fair hike), but there are nice spots to sit and grab a bite if you're spending the whole day here (which we frequently end up doing). The animal hospital is worth a little detour, providing a nice sneak peek into what (and really why) they do. Highly recommended.
  • This an excellent wildlife park, we have travelled throughout the world and have been to many wildlife parks over the years and the Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary is up there as one of the best. The great thing is that is not too big so you can see it all in a day if you hustle, two days is better if you can, then you could spent more time at each exhibit. The grounds are beautiful, cover in tall tress so there is plenty of shade. There is a little train you can ride around the park, there is a great playground for the kids, the staff are very helpful, there are plenty of animals. An awesome experience..

  • This place is awesome. Such a great place to get close to nature and see some animals up close. A very good selection of animals too see and the day I went the place was quite empty! Some great shows as well to watch while you’re there. The food from the burger bar was also very good and great value for money. Would recommend as a day out.
  • Great place to spend some time with our beautiful wildlife, up front a cuddly koalas and feeding for a good number of kangaroos. Good place to have lunch or just a coffee. Well worth a visit. I hag enjoy sent a lot of people here and never hear a bad report. There's also a high wire for the kids to burn off a little energy.
  • Lovely family day out. I recommend you get in early in the day as there is so much to explore. Our kids loved the train rides and the bird show. We got a chance to pat a kangaroo, emu and a koala. Highly recommend for families. Parking was $5 for day after midday, normally $10.
