Currumbin began life as a bird sanctuary, and it is almost synonymous with the wild rainbow lorikeets that flock here by the hundreds twice a day for feeding. It's quite an experience -- flocks of chattering birds descend onto visitors holding trays of food for them. Photographers go crazy, and tourists love it. Lorikeet feeding is at 8am and 4pm, and lasts for about 90 minutes. Don't miss it. The park's 27 hectares (67 acres) are home to 1,400 native birds and animals, including two saltwater crocodiles, and the wetlands on the grounds attract lots of native birds. You can also have your photo taken cuddling a koala, hand-feed kangaroos, take a free miniature steam-train ride through the park, attend animal talks and feeding demonstrations, and visit the animal hospital. An Aboriginal dance show takes place daily at 3:30pm. Allow several hours to see everything. A highlight is the free-flight birds show at 11:30am and 2pm. "Wildnight" tours are run daily and include dinner, a guided night tour, and an Aboriginal dance performance. Dinner is at 6pm, with the tour starting at 6:45pm. The cost is A$89 adults and A$59 children 4 to 13, but you must book at least by 3pm on the day of your tour.
