Full description
Enjoy a close koala encounter on this VIP 20-minute behind-the-scenes experience at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, centrally located on the Gold Coast. 

Spend your morning exploring 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 13 interactive keeper shows daily or ask one of the helpful volunteers positioned around the park.

In the afternoon, take part in your 20-minute behind-the-scenes koala experience. Step into the koala enclosure and learn all about Australia’s cuddliest creatures from the keeper. What better souvenir of your visit than a koala cuddle and professional photograph! Finish your day by feeding colorful wild lorikeets at 4 pm for a gold coin donation. Enjoy the spectacle of dozens of rainbow-colored birds landing on your head and arms.
