So what is Gruffalo, and how do you find one? Head to Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary and find out for yourself! The Gold Coast’s favourite wildlife park welcomes their newest attraction and will amaze and delight families visiting! Will you be coming to check it out this Spring?

Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary

Just a few minutes from our Palm Beach holiday apartments you will find Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, where you can get up close and personal with the most fascinating native Australian wildlife, plus visitors from around the globe.

See koalas, wallabies, dingoes, parrots, lizards, snakes, wombats, crocodiles and more. Head to a wildlife show and learn about the natural behaviours and characteristics of different species of wildlife and get your picture taken with them! Feed the kangaroos and cuddle a koala or take part in one of the many other animal encounters available.

The famous lorikeet feeding sessions are an experience on their own, with hundreds of rainbow coloured birds flocking to the feeding station. They are quite tame and can be hand fed. The Wild Adventure Splash Zone is now open and boasts water jets, streams, and waterfalls for kids under 12 years old to enjoy.

There are also multiple playgrounds, a segway safari, and a treetop challenge families can opt to take part in. You can take a tour of the wildlife hospital and learn about the care that the animals receive and see the rehab facilities for recovering wildlife. You can also visit the red panda, tamarin, lemur, and tree kangaroo exhibits in the Lost Valley rainforest, and take pictures with the life sized dinosaurs along the walkways.

With so much to do and see at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary you will be hard pressed to get through all of it in just one day!

The Gruffalo Trail

Download the augmented reality app and then step out into the deep dark forest to hunt for clues that will lead you to the Gruffalo - a mythical creature based on the famous book character created by Julia Donaldson.

You’ll need to find 5 markers along the way. Use the app to the Fox, Mouse, Owl, and Snake and watch them come to life before your very eyes. Make sure you snap a pic with them! Finally you’ll arrive at the last marker where, if you’re lucky, you’ll be able to spot the giant Gruffalo!

This trail is a great interactive activity to enjoy as part of your Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary experience. So when will you be coming to see it for yourself? You can find out about more local attractions here, or book a stay with us here.
