Connect with nature at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary

More than a zoo or wildlife park, Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary is an educational experience that is a must visit attraction on the Gold Coast.

Located at the Southern end of the Gold Coast, Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary is an outdoor venue that connects people with nature and wildlife, providing not only an educational experience but a safe haven for wildlife with its attached wildlife hospital.

The lush 27-hectare outdoor Sanctuary continues to play a vital role in connecting wildlife and nature with the community. The expansive grounds provide an open-air safe haven for humans and animals alike and the conservation efforts are aimed to ensure that the Sanctuary and precious wildlife remain in place for generations to come.

Now open Thursday to Sunday from 9am to 4pm, visitors can enjoy daily shows like the wild lorikeet feeding, free flight bird shows, aboriginal performances and watch Boss Hog have his lunch.

What to experience

Take a visit to the hospital and see the vital work the veterinary team and volunteers are doing to secure the future of Australia’s wildlife.

Discover the Lost Valley as you wander your way along elevated boardwalks where you are able to experience and interact with exotic species such as Lemurs, Cotton-top Tamarins, Red Panda, and Capybaras along with free-flying birds and exotic reptiles and so much more.

You can even experience an Animal Encounter, a wonderful way to learn more about the incredible wildlife – an experience not to be missed.

In addition to all this, there are the incredible animals that call Australia home, like koalas, wombats, Tasmanian devils, emus, kangaroos and much more.

It really is an experience for the whole family and anyone interested to learn more about wildlife. Entry prices start from $39.95 for an adult and $39.95 for a child aged 4-14 years. More pricing can be found here.
