“a world-leader in the display of Australia's wildlife”

With its foundation in the pioneering days of Gold Coast tourism, Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary has developed into a world-leader in the display and preservation of Australia’s wildlife and natural heritage. With hundreds of animals and birds, the Sanctuary is home to one of the largest collections of Australian native wildlife in the world. Established over 60 years ago, the Sanctuary has attracted millions of visitors throughout its history and continues to provide opportunities to see and interact with Australia’s amazing wildlife. The Sanctuary was established in 1947 by beekeeper and flower grower Alex Griffiths, who began feeding the region’s wild lorikeets to prevent them from ravaging his prized blooms. The feeding of the colourful lorikeets soon developed from a local curiosity to a popular tourist attraction. In 1976, the Sanctuary became aa National Trust of Queensland property. The National Trust of Queensland is a like-minded organisation dedicated to preserving the State’s natural and cultural heritage. The Trust continues to operate the Sanctuary on a not-for-profit basis, with all revenue reinvested back into the park, in conservation-based research, caring for sick and injured wildlife and public education. Originally known as Currumbin Bird Sanctuary, the park’s name was changed to Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary in 1995 to better reflect the diverse range of animals on display.
