It's feeding time here at the Sanctuary! Preservative free top grade mince blended up with added supplements and fly pupae. Only the best for our animals. Each echidna roughly eats about 100 grams a day and we also add termite mounds when required!

Thanks to Wildcare.org.au and trained officer Alice, this 17 gram Squirrel Glider and his brother have been given a second chance after their mother was killed by a cat attack. These little guys will be hand raised by dedicated volunteers until they are strong enough to survive alone, where they will then be returned to the wild.
Remember you should always bring your cats in at night and put a bell on them to avoid any complications they can cause with native wildlife.

Congratulations to Paige Allen who has been awarded Volunteer of the Season. Paige is one of our most valued wildlife volunteers and the time she spends with us is extremely helpful. Paige has been with us in the wildlife department for two years and she loves most of all to work with the echidnas. Paige is striving towards this being her future career and we think that she is well on her way and proving that she has what she takes to be a Wildlife Officer. A massive thank you to Paige for all the time and effort that she kindly gives us.
Our volunteers are the heart of Currumbin Sanctuary. If you are interested in becoming part of our team, be sure to visit our website to read about the different opportunities our Sanctuary has to offer.
September is going to be a great month here in the Southern Gold Coast. And the Sanctuary and Wildlife Hospital can’t wait to start the festivities. Experience a wondrous display of over 50 sculptures built by local, national and international artists at the 12th annual Swell Sculpture Festival along Currumbin Beach 12 - 21 September, 2014.
The free exhibition is open all hours with a selection of sculptures revealing a new verve as they are lit up under the southern sky. Over 10 days, visitors can experience the sculptures, enjoy twilight walks, informative artist talks, discover new perspectives, wander through the Swell Smalls Gallery and participate in artist master classes and childrens' workshops.
Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, a National Trust of Queensland property, encourage visitors to use their car park and it's just a short 400m stroll to Swell. A flat rate parking charge of $8 will be collected, valid for a full day at Currumbin with all proceeds going to support the Currumbin Wildlife Hospital Foundation - Swell Sculpture Festival’s Charity of Choice.
