Day trip to Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary

Whether you’re a toddler, teen or ‘kidult’ be sure not to miss Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary on the Gold Coast, and the best part? Profit from the sanctuary goes back into helping our incredible Australian wildlife. The sanctuary is home to much Australian fauna and now to some international friends in the Lost Valley.

Once you’re inside the Sanctuary there are plenty of complimentary activities and shows available for everyone! Take flight in the daily bird show, or watch Boss Hog snap up his lunch at the crocodile show.

Your map of the sanctuary will let you know if any furry friends are coming out for their up close and personal.
