My daughter and I had a great time at Currumbin the Koala Experience will never be forgotten. One thing you might do is announce to the passenger's on the train if they will be asked to get off half way around the park because of the bird show before the train takes off so they can get off. We had a fantastic time, thank you for all that you do! Linda Berman

Great place to visit, but I recommend if your getting Koala photo's get there on open (8am) we had no troubles and you got to hold them longer and had a great chat with the Koala handlers. I Highly recommended a visit. Trina.
