CURRUMBIN WILDLIFE SANCTUARY
Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary was founded by beekeeper and flower grower Dr Alex Griffiths in 1947 initially as a lorikeet feeding display. Over 70 years on, the wild lorikeets are still fed twice daily. The Sanctuary is a heritage listed property set on 27 hectares of bushland and rainforest on the Gold Coast.
Iconic Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary is owned by the National Trust of Australia (Queensland). As a not-for-profit organisation, the National Trust reinvests proceeds back to fulfil its mission to protect, conserve and celebrate Queensland’s environmental, built and cultural heritage, funding both the wildlife hospital and conservation programs state wide.
