The dingo is an iconic Australian animal. They first arrived in Australia around 5000 years ago via ocean-going seafarers. These descendants of Asiatic wolves play an important role in Australia’s ecosystem by keeping the number of foxes and feral cats down. A dingoes habitat ranges from deserts, to grasslands and the edges of forests. They can use caves, rocky outcrops and hollow logs as a den often close to a water supply. A small pack of dingoes reside at the Sanctuary, presided over by our alpha male Marrok.
Currumbin Sanctuary offers a unique experience to get up close and personal with these amazing animals. Our dingoes enjoy guest experiences and their daily walks with their keepers through the park.
Dingoes can’t bark like dogs, however they can howl.
