Visitors Information

There is so much more to do at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary than  most visitors can imagine. Our Experience Pass offers the visitor opportunity to pick and choose the experiences they most enjoy within one inclusive price. From the famous Lorikeet Feeds twice a day, to world class reptile shows, Free Flight Bird Shows and spell binding Aboriginal Dance performances. The pass now includes a visit to the busiest Wildlife Hospital precinct in Australia.

Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary is famous for the  most natural and relaxed experience of the big attractions on the Gold Coast, mixed with fun for all ages. The exciting Wild Island adventure play area is ideal for the little ones whilst the Adventure Parc High Ropes Course is fantastic for bigger kids their parents and even grandparents…if they dare! Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary is owned by The  National Trust of Queensland , a registered charity and ‘not-for-profit’  organization reinvests all proceeds from these passes back into the Sanctuary.
