On arrival at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary start the tour with an iconic Australian experience. A cuddle with one of our friendly koalas (Souvenir photo included). Our live Aboriginal dance show commences at 3:30pm. Celebrating our rich local Aboriginal culture that is embedded in this Gold Coast region, we invite you to come, listen & see our Yugambeh language, dance & stories. The Australian wildlife icons continue with hand feeding our beautiful “free-range” kangaroos in their 5 acre paddock. See both the local Eastern Grey and also the Red Kangaroo which is the largest mammal native to Australia.
Feed the wild lorikeets which have been an institution on the Gold Coast for the past 67 years before heading to the Sanctuary Café Deck for your traditional Aussie BBQ Buffet. The Aussie BBQ Buffet includes Beef Steak, Baked Fish, Lemon Myrtle Chicken, Ricotta and Spinach Cannelloni (vegetarian), Roasted Potatoes, Mixed Steam Vegetables, Coleslaw, Garden Salad, Bread Rolls, Fruit Salad and Lamingtons. One can of soft drink per person plus water on the table.
Your journey finishes with an Aboriginal Ochre Ceremony and a farewell Dance performance. Aboriginal communities have been painting their bodies for thousands of years. Painting is not just about visual artistic creativity; it relates to Aboriginal laws and religion and is a means of communication. In dance, designs are used to tell a story. Contemporary body painting in Aboriginal dance draws on these traditions.
Transfers and souvenirs are not included.
