Local. Fresh. Natural. Come back to Currumbin for a great dining experience. Sanctuary Café offers local, fresh food in Currumbin's unique, natural surroundings. There's no entry charge to visit for breakfast and lunch at Sanctuary Café. You'll enjoy the best food, wine & coffee from the region as well as wildlife encounters.
Lorikeet Arena
A Queensland icon, you can feed the lorikeets for a donation.
You can also explore the retail outlets and enjoy fresh local produce for breakfast or lunch at Sanctuary Café - and, if you wish, purchase entry to enjoy a full day at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary.
The wild Lorikeets feed at the Sanctuary from 8:00am-9:00am and at 4:30pm-5:00pm each day, just as they did when Alex Griffiths founded the Sanctuary more than 65 years ago. So come back to Currumbin and celebrate with them!

Green Challenge Adventure Parc
Presented by Adventure Parc, this exciting treetops ropes course through Currumbin's bushland areas takes elements of commando training and makes them safe, fun and exciting.
