Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary is a sanctuary located in Currumbin, a coastal suburb in the Gold Coast region of Queensland, Australia. It has an area with 27 hectares of lush bushland to walk through. In this vast sanctuary we can meet various Australian native animals such as kangaroo, koala, wombat, dingo, emu, and many more. The sanctuary itself is open from 8.00am – 5.00pm daily.
I got the chance to visit the sanctuary during the Gold Coast Orientation Trip with QUT on 25 February 2017. It was my first time to see many Australian native animals. I spent my time there wandering around the sanctuary to see those animals.
I also watched some shows and attractions when I was there.
I had the chance to touch a kangaroo for the first time ever in my life in this sanctuary.
All in all, it was a great and unique experience for me to visit such place because I could meet many indigenous Australian animals. The shows and attractions were also interesting. I hope I could visit this sanctuary again in the future.
