Currumbin is a southern region of Queensland’s spectacular Gold Coast. The headlands around the coastal area, as well as Currumbin Creek create a natural habitat that has been declared a National Park. With more flora and fauna than other parts of the coastal regions, the existence of the Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary (official site) it’s easy to see why this region is one of the best places to checkout many of the plants and animals that make Australia so unique.

Originally a bird sanctuary, Currumbin now is home to a whole host of animals including koalas, kangaroos, emus, crocodiles, Tasmanian devils and dingoes to name but a few.

Currumbin is also a great chance to have your photo taken cuddling a koala.

An included visit to the Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary is a stop between Coffs Harbour and Surfers Paradise on most east coast Contiki Tours in Australia.
