It's an all-outdoor location, so take plenty of water and sunscreen. And if anyone in your party has little legs, be prepared to carry them; there's lots of walking to be done, and much of it is uphill. There are food outlets at the sanctuary, but they're the hot-dog-and-ice-cream-type, so take your own lunch if you want something a bit healthier.
A full day at Currumbin will be a highlight of your visit, but plan something a little less strenuous the day before or the day after -- all that fresh air and fun will wear you out!

There are quite a few informative and interactive shows on wildlife here. We sat through the ones on birds of prey, Australian predators, and one on snakes. I get goosebumps all over when I remember those snakes. However, I was disappointed when I didn't manage to see any koalas. Actually, I did see one who was sleeping. It's very difficult to sight a sleeping koala on a tree, so I guess I was lucky here.
But I struck gold when it came to kangaroos. Loads of them basking peacefully in the winter sun. I patted them and even fed one of them. I think I wouldn't mind a joey as a pet. :)

They had about 30 koalas, though, and they were cute. The rest of the park was pretty good but it was very small. It only takes an hour to feel you have seen everything here. We didn't feel it was worth the price.
