Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary with a Toddler:How to Enjoy Family Travel in Gold Coast


Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary is best place to contact with Australian animals. I visit there with 1 year-old son, and it was a good experience for us.

Here are the information about the animals, playgrounds, restaurants and entrance fee of Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary.


You can find many kinds of animals in Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary. For example, koala and kangaroo and crocodile are famous in this place.

I was especially excited about kangaroo area, we can feed and touch them there. My son was very scared, but he could touch kangaroo.

I think you should meet kangaroo and koala in the afternoon, because they are active at the time.

Unfortunately, we went there in the morning, so many kangaroos lay down and koalas slept.

Anyway, animals in Wildlife Sanctuary look relaxed it is as if they live in natural environment.


Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary has some cafes and restaurants. We had a lunch at Wild burgers, and what we ordered are as follows.

・The Healthy Hen Meal (Chicken burger) 17 AUD
・The Kabab’ish Meal(Kebab burger) 18 AUD
・Kids Chicken & Rice 12.95 AUD

I think Chicken burger is pretty good and french fries of side menu are really nice. But my husband don’t like Kebab burger’s taste 🙁

And, the price of the meal is a little bit expensive, so it might be better to bring your own food.

In addition, there is a great playground for kids next to the restaurant. Kids and parents can play for free.

Also, new play area will open on September 2019. It will make Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary more family-friendly place.


Entrance fee of Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary is 49.95 AUD per adult on their website. Under 4 year-old kids can enter for free. In addition, parking fee is 10 AUD.

We thought the entrance fee is a little bit expensive. So we got the online ticket on other website, and it’s 38.5 AUD per adult.

Also, you can buy reasonable ticket around Surfers Paradise. I recommend you get the ticket at a good price.
