Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary

There are many critters nestling in the rainforest setting of Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, but the prettiest - and loudest - are the flocks of rainbow lorikeets that cluster round visitors for twice-daily feeds. If you've never seen these birds before, you're in for a treat - they're a photogenic patchwork of emerald green, sapphire blue and sunset orange. They're not shy, and will perch on your head or arms to eat.

The rainbow lorikeets were the ones that started it all - Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary was begun by a beekeeper and gardener who started feeding the lorikeets to keep them off his crops - but there are now hundreds of native animals in the sanctuary, including kangaroos, koalas, wombats and crocodiles.

You can tour the sanctuary with a guide on Segways, take on the Tarzan ropes and Flying Fox of the Green Challenge, feed and cuddle animals and go behind the scenes to visit nurseries and hospitals.
