Currumbin Sanctuary is a heritage-listed zoological garden set across 27 hectares of Australian eucalyptus-rich bushland and rainforest. Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary has been conserving native wildlife and nurturing the local indigenous heritage for over 70 years. This regional treasure has also been educating and entertaining families and tourists from all across the globe.
Established in 1947 by beekeeper and flower-grower, Alex Griffiths, the very origins of the park are rooted in conservation efforts. Instead of hunting or displacing the lorikeets residing in the region, Griffiths sought to redirect their attention from ravaging his prized blooms by providing regular feedings each day. These feedings quickly gained popularity amongst locals and tourists alike, and thus, the Currumbin Bird Sanctuary was born.
In 1995 the park’s name was changed to Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary to better reflect the diverse range of the various animals and conservation efforts within. Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary is a not-for-profit organisation. Proceeds from events at the Sanctuary are reinvested back into our wildlife and conservation programs
For only $AUD100 per person you will enjoy a half-day of activities including a walk through a crocodile enclosure and kangaroo paddock, plus much more – all led by a professional guide. The price includes transport to and from the venue and afternoon tea.
This package normally costs in excess of $AUD100 per person so make sure to take up this great offer!
