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.

  • A beautiful place for a quality family time on nature. You can feed and touch kangaroos, look at some animals feeding, have a ride on small tram around sanctuary (there is a place to hold your pram on a train) and lots of walking observing live animals and birds. Staff is very welcoming. Thank you so much! We absolutely enjoyed it! For multiple entries you can purchase an annual member card.
  • This is an absolute must for anyone who spends time in Gold Coast! The sanctuary is set up so wonderfully to allow people to interact with many animals all around the park. There are lasers and bird that roam freely, in addition to kangaroos and emus. Of course, the chance to hold a koala must not be passed up and the money for the picture goes back into the park - it's a win-win! There are also a few shows to enjoy. Make sure to take snacks and plan many hours for your visit!
  • I only came here for the bird feeding at 4 o'clock but it was really good! It is a beautiful place and there were so many birds that came to feed and perch on you. The bird feeding is paid for by a donation and it was definitely worth it! They also take pictures of you to take home digitally or physically. I would love to come here again!
  • 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..
