Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, Gold Coast
One of the Gold Coast’s longest running and most popular attractions, Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary’s koala holding experiences are available all day from 8 am to 5 pm.
Visitors are able to purchase a koala holding experience with a single photo for $29. You can do it solo or bring your buddies along, but just remember, only one person can hold the koala.
Plus if you want the ultimate experience, Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary has these behind-the-scenes koala experiences too. Only for a lucky group of 10, they'll actually take you right into the koala enclosure with the keepers. And guess what? You get to cuddle a koala at the end of it all – how awesome is that? It's called the Behind the Scenes Koala Experience, and it's $49 per person. You can jump in either at 11 am or 3.15 pm. So, if you're up for something really special, this one's definitely worth considering.
