Visit Currumbin Wildlife Hospital, located on the grounds of Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary. Established over 30 years ago, it has grown to be one of the busiest wildlife hospitals in the world. The Wildlife Hospital has admitted almost 14,000 wildlife for 2020, with a staggering 600+ Koalas being part of this total number. Proceeds from the Sanctuary, along with donations, allow the hospital to continue its vital work saving our native Australian wildlife. Watch our vets in action from the hospital deck. Both Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary and Currumbin Wildlife Hospital are not for profit organisations.
While in the Sanctuary you are bound to meet one of our friendly volunteers. They can assist with any questions and are always full of amazing animal facts which they love to share.
Why not enjoy an icecream or grab a bite to eat at one of our food and beverage outlets while in park. Before you leave, stop off at Spirit of the Outback or Natures Gift to find the perfect gift for family and friends.
