I love our sanctuary, both the flora and fauna. A fabulous opportunity for all to experience a first hand close encounter with Australian wildlife. I love the sanctuary so much I now volunteer 1 day every week. Come visit you may see me there.
Brought the family (myself, husband and our 11 and 13 year old) here on Father's Day. We all thoroughly enjoyed the day. So much to see and do. Great for all ages. Staff and volunteers were very friendly. Food was great with a few different areas to eat at. Train ride around the park was enjoyable. Animal hospital was interesting to observe how they care for the sick animals. I would highly.recommend a visit here.
Great place to bring kids. Staff are friendly and knowledgeable. Loved the train which took you around the park. The Bush walk with animal enclosures was lovely and a great respite from the heat. The animal hospital area was very interesting. We loved the conservation based approach and educational information. You need to plan to spend at least half a day here. They have photo opportunities with native Australian animals. Also there are additional activities available on their website.
Wow, what a place! Although i expected to see more koalas in the nature, on the trees. They seemed a bit domesticated for me. I spent a whole day here, and i really enjoyed all the programs. The aboriginal dance seemed a bit rushy for me, but it was still nice to get the taste of the traditional dance and music.
I've been to Currumbin numerous times, however this was the first with the kids. What an absolutely fantatsic day! The wildlife, train, photo opportunities: everything about it is worth the money and trip! The kids and I loved the playgrounds as well, seeing as it was a place to stop, have a drink and rest while the kids climbed and played. The bird and eel feedings were great (a little hard for the little ones to see in a big crowd, so get there a little earlier). The chance to feed the Kangaroos was also great and overall experience is a lot better than some zoos where all the animals are behind cages or far away. Food is reasonable, however there are plenty of places to stop and have a picnic so keep that in mind for a money saving idea. While you might find the initial entry price a little steep, please keep in mind it's a not for profit location and all funds go back towards the animal hospital and upkeep (this made my husband, who hasn't been to the Sanctuary since the 80's a lot more free in the giftshop and photo purchases ). Please, if you're a local who hasn't been in a while, or a visitor to the Gold Coast, definitely add this to your to do list!
