Is Currumbin Bird Sanctuary Open On Good Friday?

by Mary B.

My family will be coming to the Gold Coast for the Easter holidays, and we wanted to visit Currumbin Bird Sanctuary on Good Friday.

Will Currumbin be open on that day? Will everything be open?

We are a family of 2 adults and 2 boys aged 7 & 10 years, what is the best type of ticket for entry?
Thanks, Mary

To answer your first question, Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary is open on Good Friday and all over the Easter long weekend, including Easter Saturday, Easter Sunday and Easter Monday.

Opening times are the usual 8am to 5pm daily and you can expect that all the usual shows and attractions should be open (unless there is some attraction maintenance etc).

The Easter weekend is one of the big weekends of the year, as it co-incides with school holidays. During Queensland School holidays, Currumbin usually runs the full range of shows, activities and extra tour options for things like the Segway Safaris and Tree Tops Rope Challenges.

Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary is open every day of the year except Christmas Day (25 December) and ANZAC Day (25 April).

Just to avoid any confusion, Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary is the proper name, it used to be know as the bird sanctuary, but now is much more than that. As well as the famous bird feeding, there are many opportunities to see a wide range of Australian native animals.

As for the best tickets, your family is very lucky to be able to take advantage of the awesome Family Passes. Children aged between 4 and 14 years are classified as child tickets for entry. Children aged 0 to 3 years are free entry.

The family passes are for 2 Adults + 2 Children and are the cheapest way for a family to enter the wildlife park. Prices change, but here are the links to the information for the latest deals:
Family Passes or
All Currumbin Ticket & Pass Options.

The family deal is hard to beat, but on those pages you will see the different options and you can then decide whether there might be extra things you want to do in combination with your Currumbin visit.

I hope that gives you some ideas, if you have any more questions or want any more suggestions please leave a comment below or use the contact form to contact me directly.
