Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary


Welcome to Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, home to the world’s largest collection of Australian native animals.

The Sanctuary is an oasis, located in the centre of Australia’s popular holiday destination, the Gold Coast. With over 27 hectares of landscaped surrounds and bushland catering for over 1400 mammals, birds and reptiles, Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary offers a unique natural experience.

Take in the sights of Australia by visiting the Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary where you can see native animals face to face in natural surroundings. The Sanctuary is also recognized worldwide as a quality research and conservation facility.

At the newest attraction, Wild Island, it’s prey vs predator for youngsters at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary! Wild Island is a place where kids can experience what it’s like to be an animal surviving in the wild! The outdoor adventure playground combines fun-filled entertainment with fascinating wildlife education for young visitors to the park. On Wild Island kids can hone their skills in the Rainforest Tree House, uncover ancient fossils, escape into subterranean burrows, experience what it’s like to be locked into an oversize spider’s web, soar into an eagle’s nest on the Raptor Ride, and clamber like a gecko on a giant rock wall!

Conveniently situated beside the main highway and still only meters from the sandy white beaches of the Gold Coast, the Sanctuary is an opportunity to visit the green behind the gold.
