Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary introduces new water playground
December 11, 2019

National Trust Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary has launched their newest addition, Wild Island Adventure Splash and Play Zone.

The Wild Island precinct is surrounded by beautiful sub-tropical flora and fauna with sculptures of Australian wildlife and natural features.

The Adventure Splash and Play Zone offers childen a range of timed water jets, streams and waterfalls to run through, with the Wild Island Playground offering climbing and exploring including wobbly ropes bridges, spiders web, shaded slides and a flying fox.

Michael Kelly, General Manager of Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary advised “We are excited to provide a fantastic new play zone for kids to cool down over the summer months, whilst enjoying the natural surrounds of the Sanctuary.

“It’s a continued investment in tourism on the Gold Coast on the back of previous improvements in the Sanctuary including the new exotics precinct - Lost Valley and the relaunch of the Wild Skies Free Flight Bird Show.”

As part of this multi-million dollar precinct upgrade, the Sanctuary now has new centralised bathrooms with a 5 star Parent’s Room, which is a comfortable and relaxing space, offering two private areas for baby feeding, a play area for toddlers, three baby change tables and sink, and a kitchenette for warming up baby bottles and food. The entry to the Parents Room is via an automatic sliding door to make it easier to manoeuvre prams and wheelchairs.

The Wild Island precinct offers wheelchair, pram and walker accessibility all around.
