Wildlife - Surfers Paradise

Australia is known for its wildlife, from cute and cuddly koalas, to laughing dolphins and fierce crocodiles. You can book tickets and travel from Surfers Paradise at ticket sales centres across the precinct, or ask the staff at your Hotel Concierge to book for you.

Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary

In the safety of a wildlife reserve, you can experience the natural flora and fauna of the Australian outback, at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary. Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary is famous for the most natural and relaxed experience of the big attractions on the Gold Coast, mixed with fun for all ages. Experience the Lorikeet feeding twice daily, the world class reptile shows, or learn some of Australia's history in the Aboriginal Dance performance. Take the time to snap a photo with a koala, snake or crocodile.

If the ocean is more your style, take the time to visit Seaworld, the largest Marine Park in Queensland. Experience the Penguin Encounter and the Dolphin Nursery Pool, or head to Shark Bay, Ray Reef and Polar Bear Shores to see some of our larger marine animals. Seaworld is also perfect for families with children, with Nickelodeon stars Dora the Explorer and Spongebob Squarepants calling Seaworld home.

Whale Watching

If you're in Surfers Paradise in late May to early November, you should definitely take part in a Whale Watching Cruise. Whales are majestic creatures, who migrate north to warmer waters in the winter, in order to meet a partner and mate. Their migration path takes them along the East Coast of Australia. With many kilometres of beach, and several great viewing locations, as well as guaranteed sightings on some Tour Cruise Boats, Surfers Paradise is a great location for Whale Watching.
