After the Summer holiday season, Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary will return to reduced trading days.
From week commencing Monday, 1 February the Sanctuary will be OPEN for 5 days each week (Thursday to Monday inclusive) and CLOSED on Tuesdays and Wednesdays until further notice.
The Sanctuary Cafe will continue to operate 7 days a week from 8:00 am until 2:00 pm.
Lorikeet Feeding will still take place daily, in the mornings from 8:00 am to 9:00 am and at 4:00 pm – 4:30 pm each afternoon.
The lush 27-hectare outdoor Sanctuary continues to play a vital role in connecting wildlife and nature with the community. The expansive ground provides an open-air safe haven for humans and animals alike and their conservation efforts are aimed to ensure that the Sanctuary and precious wildlife remain in place for generations to come.
A visit to the Sanctuary will feel a little different during this time, as they introduce new protocols and procedures to ensure that members and guests continue to enjoy a safe outdoor environment.
Come face-to-face with extraordinary wildlife in exciting daily shows such as Wild Skies – Free Flight Bird Show where you can enjoy hands-on encounters with the wildlife. Cuddle a koala, pat a kangaroo or book a hospital tour. Discover Lost Valley as you wander your way along elevated walkways where you are able to experience and interact with exotic species such as Lemurs, Cotton-top Tamarins, Red Panda, Capybaras and the new addition to the family the Binturong along with free-flying birds and exotic reptiles. There are so many must-do experiences.
