Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary has been conserving native wildlife and nurturing the local indigenous heritage for over 70 years. This regional treasure has also been educating and entertaining families and tourists from all across the globe. So naturally, the animal attraction is at the heart of Gold Coast history. You’d be hard pressed to find a local who hasn’t experienced the renowned wild rainbow lorikeet feeding. But over the decades, Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary has, more importantly, served as a haven to a myriad of native Australian animals — big, small, flourishing and endangered. Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, officially renamed in 1995, is now a heritage-listed zoological garden set across 27 hectares of natural eucalyptus-rich bushland and rainforest. The park was deemed to be of great importance to the evolution of the state’s history, and was subsequently added to the Queensland Heritage Register in 2009. Today, the Sanctuary is home to native mammals, reptiles, birdlife and amphibians as well as some exotic species. Strong support from locals and the emergence of ecotourism has allowed the Sanctuary to thrive since its inception. The educational public park continues to provide vital breeding and conservation programs, and lorikeets still flock to the arena twice daily to be fed by the equally delighted visitors.
Day 08: Gold Coast
Warner Bros. Movie World is a 16.8 hectare film studio theme park on the Gold Coast, Queensland, and Australia. Owned and operated by Village Roadshow's Theme Parks division, the park opened on 3 June 1991.

The park contains movie-themed rides, attractions and shows. Various costumed characters regularly patrol the park to interact and take photos with guests. Each afternoon, characters participate in a parade along the park's Main Street.

Venture off the Great Ocean Road and into the Great Otway National Park to spot wild koalas sleeping or perhaps eating in their eucalyptus homes, before continuing along the Surf Coast to our lunch stop in Apollo Bay. After lunch we follow the road through the Otway Ranges and stop to explore the cool temperate rainforest of the Great Otway National Park. Wander amongst the tree ferns and wonder at the towering Mountain Ash trees, the tallest flowering species in the world.

Embark on your tour, which includes behind-the-scenes access to some parts of the stadium that the general public doesn't get to see.
