When is the best Currumbin holiday accommodation not in Currumbin?
When it’s in Tugun, of course.
The Gold Coast region of Currumbin is best known for the Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary that actually occupies quite a significant area of Currumbin. The sanctuary is within walking distance of the Golden Riviera Resort in Tugun, at less than a kilometre and a half away and a scenic beachfront walk.
Since it’s inception in 1947, the Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary has been expanded to include dingoes and koalas, along with a healthy population of salt water crocodiles, which are fed most days. There’s also the twice daily visitor feedings of the local lorikeet population, and scheduled animal encounters and activities. Aside from animals the park also has a high ropes course in the Adventure Parc which has four separate courses suitable for children over the age of 6. Or enjoy a 40 minute guided tour with the parks eco-friendly Segway Safari Tour.
At a gentle ten minute amble from the Golden Riviera Beach Resort, the Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary is the perfect day out for all the family.
