Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary
If you are visiting us on The Tweed over the school holidays or in the near future, we highly recommend visiting Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary for an experience you'll remember.
Immerse yourself in 27 hectares of breathtaking rainforest and wander through the property whilst getting up close to the animals in the open enclosures throughout the park.
Whilst exploring the park, we encourage you to head to the Kangaroo enclosure where you can purchase grass pellets and feed the kangaroos... out of the palm of your hand! (This has to be one of our favourite experiences at the sanctuary!) Be sure to check the show schedules as throughout the day, there are bird shows, lorikeet feeding, Aboriginal performances and interactions* with animals up close - get in touch with your wild side, take a dingo for a stroll or get cuddly with a Koala.
If getting up close and personal with amazing animals that call this sanctuary home doesn't wear the littlies out, there are plenty of other activities the sanctuary has to offer - jump aboard the miniature train and hop off and explore the surrounding areas at the various stations located throughout the park, or simply tour the grounds from the comfort of your own miniature carriage.
Check out the huge outdoor themed playground with a designated splash zone, Wild Island Adventure Splash Zone, but be sure to pack your swimwear as not only does this playground offer plenty of areas for the kids to climb up and explore on, but also has a range of timed water jets, streams and waterfalls to run through. There are also shaded picnic areas for the parents to relax and get lunch ready whilst the kids splash around.
This sanctuary is located just across the QLD border, in the quaint surfing town of Currumbin and is a not for profit organisation that reinvests its profits into its conservation programs to ensure they continue to run for generations to come.
