Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary will be partially open on Sunday (19th January) due to the recent extreme rain and flooding. Koala Photos and limited shows will be operating and visitors will be able to access some of the exhibits. The Western reserve of the Sanctuary will remain closed until Monday 20th January so that our team can ensure the site is safe for visitors. The train will also not be running. Our apologies for any inconvenience caused.
