A great experience
You really must visit this place while on the Gold coast. The park is huge and very well set out. There are animal exhibits from all over the world, the gardens are very well kept. The train ride is excellent, with hop on hop off. Check out the pelican and eel feeding and catch the bird show, which is unique and different to the one at Australia zoo. Heaps of food and souvenirs and all run by volunteers. A great day out.

Much better than expectations.
Jun 2021
Went during school term with wife and young daughter - first week of winter (june) ... this meant the park felt very very empty and almost like we had it to ourselves.

The only negative is they charge for parking - i think when a family of 3 is paying over almost $100 to get in (plus food and other stuff) ... also charging to park your car across the road is a bit steep.
However - i didnt have huge expectations - I have been to the gold coast a dozen times on holidays and never had much desire to go... being a thrill ride junkie I always end up at the theme parks. Now with a young daughter who cant do the rides - we were looking for other options this time.

We pre-paid to have our photo taken with a koala as thats not possible in NSW (also wifes bday present) and the guys who did this were fantastic with my young daughter and we had alot of fun (and a great photo too keep) ... definitely recommend doing these sort of experiences if you can afford it to add to the day.
The park itself is actually much larger than I had imagined or is even portrayed on the park map - its not huge but it certainly isnt small.
We arrived around 10am, did the photo and then took the small railway to the opposite end of the park and arrived just in time for the bird show - which was fantastic and my 2 year old was loving it (especially the pelican)...

Walk around, lunch, a play in their "wild island" playground and the 2 year old was asleep in the pram which allowed the wife and I to explore some more and take time to watch some of the animals and read the info attached to enclosures... this is when we also went to the areas where you can touch and interact with kangaroos and then also found the "lost valley" aviary (which is huge) and it also had some lemurs who were inside and got really really close to us. Once the 2 year old woke up it was a few more animals, some ice cream and more time in the playground before we left.

Overall, we were there for around 5 hours leaving just after 3pm ... and considering alot of shows and interactions are not running due to covid - i'm sure pre-covid it would have been easy to spend even more time there ( and more $$$) ...
May not have the big wow factors of other places like Australia Zoo further north with crocs etc... but for something 30 minutes from the heart of the gold coast we really enjoyed the day and definately will be back on our next trip.

Wonderful day out for all ages and highly recommend the Koala High-Tea
May 2021
This was a wonderful day out. The animal and bird shows are very well done and informative. There is lots of wildlife and there is a huge kangaroo and koala population to get up close with. The Lost Valley area was excellent, beautifully designed and managed.
We chose to do the Koala High-Tea in the afternoon and have our photos taken with a koala and this also included a personal tour through the koala habitat. Kylie was full of information to share with us and we sat and watched the koalas whilst having high-tea...which was delicious. We would highly recommend this.
It's easy to walk the park, but there is a train which travels around the entire parkland and we had a lovely chat with our driver on his last run for the day. All the staff and volunteers we spoke to were more than happy to chat with us and answer any questions. There are volunteers available all around the park. There is a cafe out the front before you enter the park which serves lovely coffee and food on the open deck and there is 2 other food outlet options throughout the park and plenty of seating available. The lorikeet feeding in the morning and afternoon didn't disappoint. With a small donation you can get a plate of nectar for them and hold on tight as they're hungry!! We were able to see vets looking after sick animals from the viewing area outside the animal hospital and volunteers were standing by to answer any questions there also. Having not been to the park for 50 years, we were very happy to see it had grown and was still such a wonderful experience. We hope to have visitors from the USA in the near future and we will be sure to bring them here to see all our fabulous Aussie wildlife and include the Koala High-Tea or Breakfast!
The 2 gift shops have plenty of lovely gift options too. Parking is available across the street for $10/day. Overall, this sanctuary is for adults and children of all ages and we look forward to returning. Thank you everyone for a fabulous day out.

Relaxed park - made for a great day out
May 2021 • Family
Looking at the reviews we weren’t sure whether to come or not - but luckily the outlier negative reviews were just that - outliers.

We found the park to be clean and the staff helpful. Our kids 5 and 7 had a good day out. We took our time, had lunch, went to the playground and saw a couple of the shows.

Highlight was the Lost Valley - different animals to what we had seen before in this area.

The park isn’t huge, but it’s set in a bushland setting - great for a day out with the kids.

Dated, but awesome experience!!
This is how a Zoo should be, an amazing walk through the park with some of the best staff and volunteers, who care about the animals and visitors experience. We had general admission tickets but added on photos with the Koalas and the staff were amazing from start to finish, going above and beyond to ensure we knew what to see! Some of the park is dated and needs some tender love and care however that was forgotten considering the level of service and other shows on offer. Definitely will be back some day!

An absolute must see on the Gold Coast.
Apr 2021
This is an absolute must see on the Gold Coast. It is an absolutely beautiful setting with so many fabulous shady plants and so lush and green. Great flat areas for walking, prams and wheelchairs. The park is well maintained, clean and easy to access all attractions. Dollar for dollar, it is better value than the big theme parks. Animals are easy to see and kids love the experience, especially being able to feed the kangaroos and wallabies. The Blinky Bill show was a highlight for my grandkids. There is also an Aboriginal cultural Show as well. The train is a great way to view the park and is included in the admission price. The food and beverage outlets offer quite a variety of choices and are also well priced for this type of attraction. The souvenir/gift shop is well stocked with some good buys on offer. Loved the fact that this park uses the services of volunteers, many are retired people and we found them very helpful. The staff were all welcoming and friendly. We had a great day out.

Absolutely Fabulous!
Mar 2021
We were lucky with the weather and as borders were still closed to Internationals, it was relatively quiet. We found this experience to be outstanding. It has been very well set out although getting around was limited to an app or the sign posts….I still prefer a paper map! But in the end it didn't really matter much as the lovely volunteers were plentiful and always happy to give helpful advice. I would suggest you check the times of the shows in advance and work you itinerary around them. The shows are excellent performed by the knowledgable keepers and of course the animals. We attended the feeding of the pelicans and eels, the birds of prey and the reptiles and tails shows…all informative and delivered in a very friendly - and often amusing-manner. And they have a two open aired trains that take passenger around the complex. Again informative and helpful for tired tourists. This place caters for all ages and a must for people who are eager to learn about our amazing animal life in an entertaining environment. There are also photo opportunities such as holding a koala supervised by one of the delightful keepers. And finally there are a couple of gift shops to give yo the opportunity of a momento or a gift.

Love, Love, Love.
Hey review readers.

I spent a bit of time on here looking up things to do and was a little hesitant to come here as some of the reviews were negative. We have a 13 month old, a 31 year old, a 54 year old and a 76 year old in our little 4 generations holiday getaway. I was worried it could be too much for nan and we come from country Victoria, so we see Kangaroos and Koalas all the time.

Hesitations aside we took a gamble and bought the tickets online (which is a covid precaution you need to do). Got an email with a code which was scanned easily as we entered. Many people in reviews complained about parking fee's. It's $10 a car which really isnt too much. Option to pay by card is great so don't worry about finding cash. I'm also sure you could park elsewhere and walk if you needed. But at least if you read the reviews you can be budget prepared and consider this when booking.

The sanctuary was lovely and had lots of different places to stop and sit. There was alot of walking but we were able to take our time. We did get a little confused to where we were going at times and missed the dingos as I was stubborn and sure we went back around the other way (I was wrong). But that's okay, we just didn't go back as it was a little way away and Nan was getting tired and of the hills.

We were not huge on the meals to select  but got fish bites, burgers and chips. My advice is get the Lattice chips. You will be not disappointed as they were yum! Nan and mum had a burger each and they were great, and I shared fishbites with my daughter.

They have a parent room which amazing to see. Air-conditioned, change tables, bottle warmers, microwave, a little fence play area and feeding chairs in private areas. It warms my heart when I see there spaces for parents.

We took my daughter for a play in the splash park and playground. This area is huge, amazing and fenced, so let the kids go wild.

We jumped on the train just as we left which took us around the park. Not only is the place super pram friendly, the train ever has a pram carriage so you can all enjoy. We did have to wait the first time (at burger station) as they need to leave a space between families on the train. But that's a covid precaution and something the park does not have control over. So consider that before trolling them in the review. We were told to have a try at the station as you enter as this is where most people get on and off.

We highly recommend this Sanctuary for all ages. Our favourite part of the day apart from the Animals was the amazing volunteers. They were lovely, informative and helpful.

Advice.
- Take some $2 coins so you can buy Kangaroo feed. It's $4 per cup and only takes two dollar coins.
- We took water and morning tea in. This was great for us (I'm not sure if this is allowed, I didn't check the fine print and they didn't asked so search our bags/pram so not sure if this is actually okay.
- Ask when the show times are. Try and make them.
- Get in the train at the end/start as this is where most people get on and off (that's what we found anyway)
- Go with the flow with Covid Precautions. Yes it sucks. But it's not the parks fault, it's not your fault and don't let it get in your way of having a good day.

Hope this helps.

Not to be missed!

Fabulous experience at Currumbin wildlife sanctuary.
This is a full day back to nature experience. The free flight bird show is not to be missed. The train that takes you around the park is great. The new area is excellent. Highly recommended.
