Full description

Have your photo taken cuddling a koala and meet Australia’s unique native wildlife with this combo ticket. Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary is centrally located on the Gold Coast and just a 30-minute drive from Surfers Paradise. You can cuddle a koala and have your photo taken any time of the day. The Koala Photo Area is open from 9:00 am to 11:30 am, and 12:30 pm to 2:00 pm. Wander the 27-hectare sanctuary, home to over 1,400 Australian native wildlife. Hand-feed kangaroos, come face-to-face with Australia’s largest saltwater crocodile and see the free-flight bird show and Aboriginal performances. Learn about the Sanctuary and its animals at any of the interactive shows, or ask one of the helpful volunteers positioned around the park. Discover the outdoor playground, ride on the sanctuary’s miniature train, or enjoy a picnic. Visit the onsite Wildlife Hospital and see the vets in action. Join in the feeding of the colorful wild lorikeets at 8.00 am or 4.00 pm for a gold coin donation. Enjoy the spectacle of dozens of rainbow-colored birds landing on your head and arms!

Staff were amazing I can't walk very far and knew I wouldn't make it around whole Park. A lovely staff member highly recommended bird show I am very grateful for his suggestion I absolutely 100% love it. The birds flying above your head lizards and big birds walking around our feet incredible. The staff are a credit to the Sanctuary.

This place is AMAZING! Would highly recommend! Naturally goes around in a path so you see all the animals. The animals look so happy and a lot are free to roam around. Loads of kangaroos to sit and feed, they are so friendly and let you pet them. I booked the koala experience where you get to hold one, so so so so cute and loved it. It was a little rushed but the best thing ever. Volunteers are so happy and friendly.

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
