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 8.00 am to 4.00 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 13 interactive keeper shows daily 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!

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

Other than that there were a lot od walking but not much animal were im sight
