    Worst experience ever, I will NEVER EVER return there...
    We visited this place for the first time when my brother and his wife came to see us from Japan. That was my sister-in-law's first time to Australia and we stayed at the Gold Coast for two nights and we took them there to take a koala photo and see the Australian animals. I purchased the tickets through RACQ and printed out the tickets I received on their website. When we got there, I wasn't sure what I needed to do with the tickets, so I walked to the gate to ask the staff there. When we passed the ticket booth, one of the staff came out of the booth and yelled at me to line up. I was shocked and explained that I had the tickets purchased through RACQ and was going to ask the staff at the entrance gate. The staff yelled at me again 'You need to redeem the tickets at the booth where everyone is lining up. You need to line up!!' I got scared as she was emotional. Why couldn't she explain calmly as I just wasn't sure what to do with the tickets? After we redeemed our tickets, we went to the koala photo place, there were no customers in front of us. I was informed at the ticket counter that we could take photos with our mobile phones as well. However, holding a koala was just for a few seconds while the staff took a photo. While I was trying to take a photo with my phone, a staff member (old lady) grabbed my arm and forced to move. She told me that I couldn't take a photo but I said I was informed by the staff that I could, but she said NO! We paid for approx $100 to hold a koala and take a photo but it ended after a few seconds and it was a complete rip off. Also, I was so uncomfortable that the female staff grabbed my arm physically and treated me like a stupid tourist. We took them to Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary when we returned to Brisbane to hold a koala and take a photo again as we wanted to make a better memory for them. They were able to take plenty of photos with their mobile phones and the staff let us even take a photo of them standing together with a koala! The staff at Lone Pine were so friendly. In addition, we watched the bird show but it wasn't very educational compared to the one at Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary.

    One of the best experiences
    The sanctuary is a good place to go with your family or friends, my experience was amazing. They care the animals and protect them very well. You can live the experience if seeing the hospital, participate in different activities and learn a lot about environmental care.

    Ignore neg reviews… this place was awesome!
    We almost didn’t go here. I’m so glad we did! I read the negative reviews and thought that maybe it would not be good. I truly have no idea what those negative reviewers are talking about? From the moment we got there, early, to feed the Lorikeets, to leaving shortly before they closed at 3:30 PM and just after we finished our Grazy Arvo Koala encounter, it was such a grrat day! We were impressed with the volunteers, so friendly and helpful and informative. I didn’t have any Australian coins or cash so one of the volunteers gave me some food to feed the kangaroos. That was very nice of her and ended up being a highlight of my day. In fact, the whole kangaroo experience was just amazing. To walk around, and observe these beautiful animals so closely with something I will never forget. The Lost Valley was amazing! So many rare animals that we have never seen before. And again in such close proximity. The train was handy and we used it several times., but you could easily walk this park, it wasn’t too large. It did have some steeper hills. If you have problems with mobility, that could be an issue, but from what I can see, there are ways to get from place to place without going on them. Personally, I enjoyed the walks, with plenty of places to stop and view animals or rest. The bird show was excellent, the presenters were fun and informative. I was hoping to see a kookaburra, but maybe they are not very trainable! Lol The highlight for me was the koalas, as I love them, who doesn’t! Even if you didn’t do an encounter, you will see so many of them. (they have 40 altogether.) they were plenty of opportunities to see them in several different spots. But we did enjoy our afternoon encounter. We were able to hold a koala and have our photo taken (not an extra charge), and have a nice little charcuterie, board and delicious drink. Our presenters were very knowledgeable and friendly. FYI, the difference between the breakfast and the afternoon koala encounter versus the plain koala encounter is that with the plain koala encounter you get to walk around the enclosure. I felt like there was great value in the afternoon encounter as it was $50 cheaper but we still got a lot of koala time, lots of information, the picture and a light lunch. The Grazy Arvo (“avo” meaning afternoon) was $100 and included the price of admission. The koala encounter was $100 on its own, not including the price of admission. I’m sharing this here because I could not find this information anywhere online and had to ask once I arrived. It was an extremely hot and humid day (even employees said it was unusually hot and humid)… so I will share our little lifesaver. When you first get to the park, just behind the initial train depot, and by the reptilian display is a building up some stairs to watch a movie about the beginnings of the park. It is air-conditioned! Getting some heat stroke and so this was very helpful. Word of warning, though, for some reason, the mosquitoes also really like the AC and I got many mosquito bites. Fortunately, I had some mosquito repellent, and so I was able to go back in. All in all, we went there three times to cool off! Feeding Lorikeets at the very beginning of the day (we arrived at 8:30 am) was a truly wonderful experience. It is actually outside the park and free to visit and participate. They do give you opportunities to donate though which I think if you didn’t go into the park, would be very good to do. Such beautiful birds! At one point I had five on my arms and feeder plate. Lastly, there were some comments about quality and cost of the food. I actually thought there was a very nice selection of food in the park. I didn’t find it more expensive than anywhere else on the gold coast. There’s a beautiful huge muffin for four dollars. I didn’t eat it, but it looked good! We had a very delicious meat pie, an ice cream, and a croissant that was excellent! The park was clean, well organized, lots of great signage, and generally just a pleasure. I would suggest getting the app on your phone before you go and studying the map and the schedule for shows before you go. We were very clear on what we had to do and when we should do it. We went to five of the shows, and each one was great. We learned lots of new things and saw amazing, animals and creatures. Many thanks for such a memorable day!

    An Australian icon with good energy
    The park is beautiful, the workers & volunteers all exude passion for their work (talks were great, they were really friendly in a personal way), & they certainly do good works (reminded constantly of their non-profit status & by conservation focused statements). Viewing the hospital from the outside was interesting. We were lucky to see the koalas all active, eating, climbing etc, The free flight bird display was fantastic & the highlight (saw it twice!) No exhibits were spectacular (although I might be a little jaded having gone to a lot of parks in the last few months) & I'm sure foreign visitors (& little kids) would have been thrilled with contact with Australian animals we encounter frequently in our back yards. One main gripe, mentioned in previous posts, is the terrible map which is unreadable. What's wrong with a simple clear black & white map? Added to lousy (or lack of) signage we became frequently frustrated going around in circles trying to find exhibits (missethd cassuary & dingos, & only saw the reptiles on the way out when we were too tired). As an older couple backtracking & going up & down slopes was exhausting. One thought, we were impressed at Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (Cairns) they allowed you to visit over a few days, which allowed you to do a morning & return another day for the afternoon activities. This might work well for families & seniors to best take in the displays & shows.

    More a park than a wildlife sanctuary
    Beautifully kept grounds. Not enough animals on display - very disappointing. Expensive to get into and no discount to compensate for the empty enclosures

    Enjoyable afternoon
    This park has been there for since 1945 and is very well maintained and presented. We have been before but many years ago. Good displays and plenty to see. The bird display in the arena was the highlight for us. We felt the entry fee was a bit expensive and might put off some people. Plus there was a fee of $10 to park. But overall it was a pleasant experience.

    A koala experience like no other
    Came across this on trip advisor and decided to check it out. We love the outdoors and also booked in to have afternoon tea with koalas. It was great to visit the wildlife hospital and hear from the keepers what is happening with the animals - they seemed to be very well looked after and happy. The koala tea was definitely a highlight as we got to cuddle a koala (or more so, the koala got to cuddle us)! Loved it, and everyone in the family loved it too.

    Too Twilight Tour with Jordan!
    The twilight tour was an awesome way to get a mix of local culture and see the nocturnal animals starting their day! Keeper Jordan and Volunteer Betty did an awesome job taking our small group around the park to see the Tassie devil, koalas, feed kangaroos, spot the croc and wallaby’s, with the night finished with a lovely lemon myrtle tea and a Dreamtime story of how the birds got their colours. Jordan was WONDERFUL with keeping our 2.5 year old engaged, happy to hold his hand and hi-5 and involve him in doing tasks to keep him engaged as there is a bit of walking. This meant by the time we made it to the Roos he was following instructions and listening well. Betty the volunteer shared amazing knowledge too. They beautifully incorporated local culture such as learning around a yarning circle and explaining why yarning circles are important in Indigenous culture.

    My fave place on the Gold Coast
    Love the sanctuary. Always a great day out looking at the different animals. Hadn’t been here for a few years. They’ve spent quite a bit updating the place. It looked really good.

    Currumbin… a bit disappointed
    Lots of work going on around the park. I felt that the spaces the animals had were very small. Its a very child focused place so probably not so enjoyable for couples.

    Not as good as it used to be
    It’s been 3 years but there are hardly any kangaroos. A lot of cages were vacant. Cannot climb up the stairs by the reptile area. Just seems to have less there than previous. Just disappointed

    Up close with the birds and animals!
    We underestimated how much we would enjoy this experience! Great layout, fabulous staff and thoroughly enjoyable visit. Thank you so much to Bella who made us so welcome. We loved meeting the stink bug the koala, the bird was terrific and were impressed by the knowledgeable volunteers with the kangaroos. We’ll be back!

    Sensational value for a great day out.
    We were a family of 7A, 6C (4 to 10 yrs). Heaps of animals to see in each enclosure. Patting areas with kangaroos. Good cafes and gift shops. Not too expensive. Lots of areas to picnic, rest or get out of the sun or rain. We took a few sandwiches, snacks and fruit. Bought good coffees and kids drinks. Take water bottles. Lots of toilets. Donuts freshly made on site but sold out by 3pm when we went to get some. Glass right along length of hospital so you could see vets' surgeries. The Free Flight bird show was absolutely spectacular. Do not miss it. Also the first peoples' cultural show. Our kids were a bit old for Blinky Bill show and didn't respond to audience participation. Seemed good for preschoolers. All staff and volunteers were friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. Every Australian animal you can think of! Excellent value. We were there from opening to closing and the day went quickly. Our 2 eldest did the Tree Top Challenge and said it was the best thing they have ever done! Huge credit to the sanctuary. An Australian asset.

A fair amount of walking for small amount of wildlife. Glad we got cheap tickets as everything inside the park is very expensive. Food at the burger cafe was very poor and way over priced, a cheeseburger with stale cold bun will set you back $16 and drinks at least $4. The free flight bird show was a highlight of the day, still wondering if the bin chicken was meant to be in the show haha. We paid $15 for a photo of blinky bill (who is missing an arm, due to poor photography) as you simply cannot leave a photo of your child on the wall as you exit the park. I hope the $10 parking fee goes to the animal conservation and care!

Visited today 6th July, greeted by an overly officious staff member wanting to know why we didn't book online and then was concerned that were going to pay in cash (they had no problems accepting $10 cash, with no receipt for car parking ?). After being released from interrogation we were released into the park to be confronted by endless signs advising
that the exibition was closed due to covid19. This includes the railway and most of the more interesting attractions. One tassie devil, one dingo, 3 alligators, heaps of koalas , ducks and a great bird show does not make an animal park
Sure, I can understand that the pandemic will have had an effect but closure of 30% should reflect in reduced pricing. This place is public funded and should not be ripping off tax payers with exorbitant prices, ie $40 per head entry for up to 30% of past offerings.
Try looking at food prices at $18 a hamburger. This is pure greed. The only committed staff appeared to be volunteers. Not even the lorikeets visit anymore, Reduce the prices to meet the reduced offerings.

Have been going to CWS every so often since 1997. Sadly it’s steadily gone downhill and is now in the “Rip-off” category.
A plan and timetable is essential for a visit and a printed copy used to come with the ticket But now it’s available only online – try reading that on a phone in bright sunshine.
Signage is pathetic. This could be such an easy fix – printed timetables of displays and locations posted along the routes.
Most of it is walkable - if you know where you’re heading for.– trust the noddy trains at your peril. The train drivers however are infinitely more knowledgeable than the largely superannuated volunteers, who frankly often do not have a clue. We ended up going around the entire site to a location 3 minutes’ walk away, missing the display because the train had to wait until another one cleared the station. After 3 hour of this, the 4 year old member of our party had lost interest.
Don’t get me wrong. CWS performs an essential role caring for wildlife and deserves every cent spent on that. But if it seeks to entertain, it must meet basic standards, and it doesn’t.

This was a wonderful day out. The animal and bird shows are very well done and informative. There is lots of wildlife and there is a huge kangaroo and koala population to get up close with. The Lost Valley area was excellent, beautifully designed and managed.
We chose to do the Koala High-Tea in the afternoon and have our photos taken with a koala and this also included a personal tour through the koala habitat. Kylie was full of information to share with us and we sat and watched the koalas whilst having high-tea...which was delicious. We would highly recommend this.
It's easy to walk the park, but there is a train which travels around the entire parkland and we had a lovely chat with our driver on his last run for the day. All the staff and volunteers we spoke to were more than happy to chat with us and answer any questions. There are volunteers available all around the park. There is a cafe out the front before you enter the park which serves lovely coffee and food on the open deck and there is 2 other food outlet options throughout the park and plenty of seating available. The lorikeet feeding in the morning and afternoon didn't disappoint. With a small donation you can get a plate of nectar for them and hold on tight as they're hungry!! We were able to see vets looking after sick animals from the viewing area outside the animal hospital and volunteers were standing by to answer any questions there also. Having not been to the park for 50 years, we were very happy to see it had grown and was still such a wonderful experience. We hope to have visitors from the USA in the near future and we will be sure to bring them here to see all our fabulous Aussie wildlife and include the Koala High-Tea or Breakfast!
The 2 gift shops have plenty of lovely gift options too. Parking is available across the street for $10/day. Overall, this sanctuary is for adults and children of all ages and we look forward to returning. Thank you everyone for a fabulous day out.

Had a fantastic but full day. We have a 6year old child so made sure we were there for the 8am (which is really 9am for those staying in NSW) bird feeding. Anyone with a small kid knows that getting to do stuff early is a blessing. We found the Pelicans and Eel feeding fascinating and being able to get up close to the birds and other animals great. It gave us as parents a really great opportunity to talk to our child about looking after the environment. The staff were so helpful and knowledgeable. We didn’t pack a lunch (but you could if you wanted) and so brought food in there which although pricy was really nice. Please realise food and drink prices are at amusement park prices but are a lot nicer than other parks (like a water park or a roller coaster park). We went on a hot day so it was also nice to let my child cool off in the splash zone at the end. Great time had by all and a good night sleep will be had (music to a parents ears).

We arrived in Queensland during a heatwave; even some Australians were suffering. We drove down to Currumbin and because we are members of the British National Trust we were allowed in free of charge.

We did not cuddle a Koala or feed the kangaroos. I noted that the koalas are not cuddled all the time, so that they can rest in between being on show. The kangaroos looked very tired and enervated.

We enjoyed the sanctuary. There is a lot to be seen and to be learned. I loved the red panda; such a beautiful animal and now endangered.

Some animals were not to be seen. The dingoes were not visible but we did see a basking crocodile.

We're a family 2 adults and 2 kids. We booked the entrance tickets and Koala Experience in which we had a chance of close encounter with the Koala (holding it and taking photo with it). There's limited quota for each day, so we booked a few days ahead. We LOVED the place. It's our first stop once arriving from the airport, since it's quite close. We had the chance to feed and pet kangaroos (and thanks to the volunteers who taught us how). There's also playground and other educational venues like the animal hospital and Gruffalo trail. If you love animals, I would recommend spending at least a day here.

We visited Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary whilst staying in Brisbane over the festive period. To be honest I didn't know what to expect as we were visiting with my two children (4 and 6 years).
All I can say is this place is AMAZING. We witnessed the loving staff care for the beautiful animals. We sat and watched the baby Koalas being weighed and handled by the keepers, was so nice for our children to see. The bird flight show was the best we have ever seen. Informative yet entertaining. The sheep shearing was also brilliant again a great skill to show. We finished our trip with the kangaroos. This was the cherry on the top as you were allowed to actually enter their space to feed, stroke and simply sit with the beautiful animals. My children were in their element, in fact I was in my element! We haven't stopped telling family and friends about the special day.

Thank you Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary you made our holiday. We have since visited other sanctuaries and zoo around the east coast and yours is by far superior and you are doing a great job. We will be back!

My partner and I attended the sanctuary on a quiet winter weekday. We had breakfast at the entrance cafe which was nice but not amazing and we also had lunch, I'd recommend bringing your own lunch to save money. There is parking available directly across the street for about $10 a day. The train was a great way to see the park being hop on, hop off. Be sure to check out the bird show and eel feeding. The staff are very knowledgeable and friendly. We paid for the owl and eagle photos which was a great experience. The highlight was definitely the lorikeet feeding! be careful though they will poo on your clothes and in your hair! The two gift shops are filled with nick nacks and souvenirs for you to take home for memories.

The only issue we had was how the showtimes were spread out. It made us stay at the park for a bit longer than we wanted.

Absolutely brilliant. Any animal lover would really appreciate this experience, as a visitor to Australia I thought it was amazing to be able to get so close to multiple different species native to Australia.
We started off the day with the 8:00am Lorikeet feeding, this was the highlight of the day and what made it better as they are wild so they come off their own accord.
Next we held the Koala CJ who was so chilled out and friendly.
We explored a nocturnal alley which displayed reptiles and amphibians.
We watched the pelican and eel show, which was both entertaining and informative. They told us how the show was originally set up after they found a female pelican that had to have part of her wing amputated due to being stuck in fishing wire.
The tropical bird show was also great, again informative whilst also having an air of dramatic flare, almost like a story.
We moved on to feed the Kangaroos who were so placid.
And we explored further up their field to find enclosures for red pandas, lemurs and other small creatures.
Overall it was a great day, both the volunteers and rangers were always friendly and clearly knew their stuff when questions were asked. It was great to see that not only are the animals being conserved but rescued too!
