Tick off Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary’s bucket list of unique and exciting encounters - Part 1
It’s not all just about the koalas here – from adrenaline-packed adventures to behind-the-scenes sneak peeks, hands-on animal training and two-wheeled safari tours, we’ve got a number of unique encounters for you to experience, and we’re not shy in saying that they’re a lot of fun! So whether you’re a local looking for some tiptop things to do on the Gold Coast or a holidaymaker drafting up the perfect travel itinerary, we’ve rounded up a few of our exciting encounters for you to enjoy here at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary.
Embark on the Segway Safari
Fun, unique and a little bit futuristic – if you’re keen for an experience of a different kind, hop aboard one of our guided Segway tours. Ride through 27 hectares of stunning coastal bushland as you spot native plants and animals that call Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary home. With your own wildlife officer to guide you, you’ll start the tour by learning how to operate the Segway before setting off on a sensational safari adventure. Follow your guide through gorgeous rainforest scenery, stopping off along the way to learn about a whole bunch of iconic Australian animals. Pick up some cool tips on Tasmanian Devils, catch a glimpse of our loveable koalas, get up close to the wombats and emus, or even have a go at feeding our friendly kangaroos. Tickets start at $45 for the tour alone, but you can also package it up to include General Admission, so once tour wraps up you can have the whole day to explore the Sanctuary.
Take the Treetop Challenge
Release your inner Tarzan at the TreeTop Challenge, a sky-high experience full of action and adrenaline that’ll put your bravery to the test! Suitable for daredevils aged six and above, this enthralling high ropes course is made up of 80 epic challenges, including 11 ziplines that flit between towering trees and across a number of exciting animal enclosures. Keep your eyes peeled as you soar over the canopy – you’ll pass Tassie Devils, dingoes and tree-kangaroos, and did we mention you’ll zip over our resident crocodiles? Better tuck those feet in! During the course you’ll also be climbing, pulling, balancing and sliding your way through several obstacles, pushing those fears to the limit while achieving some pretty cool triumphs too. You can grab yourself a TreeTops Experience Pass for $59.00 for kids, or $69.00 for adults, which includes General Admission entry into the Sanctuary too.
