Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, officially renamed in 1995, is now a heritage-listed zoological garden set across 27 hectares of natural eucalyptus-rich bushland and rainforest. The park was deemed to be of great importance to the evolution of the state’s history, and was subsequently added to the Queensland Heritage Register in 2009.

Strong support from locals and the emergence of ecotourism has allowed the Sanctuary to thrive since its inception. Meals: Breakfast
