Come to Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary to feed Rainbow Lorikeets, a wildly colorful type of Australia parrot.

Today, visitors provide twice-daily feeding to giant flocks of the free-flying parrots. Navigate on a Segway the rest of the 27 hectares (67 acres), where you can cuddle with koalas, hang out with kangaroos, and observe crocodiles and Tasmanian Devils.

  • Came here to do the high ropes course which has easier courses for beginners and more advanced course to really rest you upper body strength. Other than the hardest level (black) the easier two (green and red) weren't too high up. Staff were friendly and very helpful. I never at any point felt unsafe, everything was well maintained and regulated. I would definitely recommend it if your in the area - though your gonna be sore the next day.
  • Had some really nice exhibits. Liked being able to get up close to the animals that you would only normally see behind a glass wall. Would have like to see more native snake and other reptile species. Only a couple things I would improve. Signage at the exhibits and to the exhibits. Kind of a challenge to navigate as well as some of them weren't labeled well to know what was in the enclosure. The Vending machines need to be labeled better. The buttons dont match the selections. :)
