Read MoreShow Less
Set minutes from the Gold Coast beaches, Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary is one of the best places in Queensland to see native Australian animals. Founded in 1947, the sanctuary encompasses 27 hectares (66 acres) of rain forest; its resident fauna includes kangaroos, koalas, wombats, Tasmanian devils, and rainbow lorikeets.
General admission to the Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary includes entrance to the Lost Valley rainforest and a variety of daily shows, including an Aboriginal dance show, a free flight-bird display, and lorikeet-feeding demonstrations. For the best value, opt for a Gold Coast Attraction Pass, which covers activities such as the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, jet boating, and whale watching, or invest in a Gold Coast Roo Pass, which offers hotel pickup and round-trip transfers to the wildlife sanctuary, plus the Gold Coast theme parks.

Clean site, people friendly perfect place. So many animals are so close it’s very cool to see them. The shuttle bus are so dirty
Fab day out
, Dec. 2019
- large park. I was there all day - hold a koala... $29. Recommend going early for this as got busy later and stopped at 2pm - make sure you go to all the shows... crocodile feeding, birds of prey, aboriginal show, pelican feeding, reptile show.... they were all really great.. especially the birds of prey - need to buy food to feed the kangaroos which was disappointing - go to the hospital and see live operations etc in action. - koalas were so cute - very easy to get to - beach 200m away... get a stamp to pop in and out of the park
