"Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary" Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary Tip by dancinbudgie

Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary has always been a favourite of ours. It has changed a lot over the years, with many improvements being made. This years aditions included the 'Extreme Green Challenge', a tree tops rope course which ends with a flying fox ride over a crocodile pit! Too much fun for me!!!
The lorikeet feeding is amazing...although a thunderstorm scared them all away while we were there...I think I have an old video of it, which I'll dig out and post later...
The kids love wandering through the kangaroo enclosure and petting the kangaroos. There were a lot of Joey's this year.
This is one of the few places you can still have your photo taken cuddling a koala. It is no longer permitted in other states because it can harm the koalas...so if you go for the cuddle, pay attention to what the handlers tell you...
