Teacher Resources

Our Education Service provides quality programs for all students including primary, secondary, tertiary, ESL and international. Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary provides for an ideal learning situation as students are immersed in an environment rich with native plant and animal life.

Students are given the unique opportunity to see Australian Animals up close in an exclusive education presentation. They may also be given the opportunity to pat some of them! We have found that the best way to develop a true understanding and empathy for both our environment and wildlife is through this interaction with real animals.

Students are empowered by being taught ways that they can personally help our animals and the environment right now in their own backyard. This gives them a sense of responsibility for the future of our unique flora and fauna.

Education visits include:

  • Education Presentation with trained staff (a range of topics available, or we'll cater one to suit your needs).
  • Free student workbook for every student (lower, middle & upper primary and lower & upper secondary, ESL, Japanese and chinese available).
  • Free teacher information pack including our Guide's Guide. This book contains information about the main animal exhibits you will encounter during your day. It also includes suggested questions and activities to maximise the educational benefits to students. A range of pre and post visit lessons are also part of the Guide's Guide.
  • Wildlife shows - Totally Wild, Snakes Alive and our new Free-Flight Bird Show.
  • Keeper talks and animal feeding times. These sessions allow students the opportunity to talk with the experts and ask questions about each animal.
  • Train rides.
  • Wild Lorikeet feeding each morning and afternoon.
  • Aboriginal Dance performance.

There are also a number of unique and convenient highly recommended additional activities we now offer school groups. Let us help you with the organisation of your day to ensure it's a day to remember for everyone involved...
