Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary is very Australian. You can cuddle a koala; feed a kangaroo, and experience the wild lorikeet feeding, free-flight bird show and Australiana sheep shearing. You might like to go on the Segway Safari. Or test your physical ability on the Adventure Parc High Ropes Course, an exhilarating 80 challenge tree-tops ropes course, let the kids loose on Wild Island, the fun-filled outdoor adventure playground and see our wonderful vets in action within the Wildlife Hospital precinct.

Situated on the New South Wales/Queensland border, high on a peak overlooking Duranbah Beach which is popular for surfing. Point Danger was named by Captain James Cook on his 1770 journey up the east coast of Australia to warn later mariners of dangerous coral reefs off this treacherous coast.
From an historic point of view this place is brimming with interesting facts about Australian maritime history. At Point Danger you will find the Captain Cook Memorial, moulded from cast iron actually jettisoned from the Endeavour and recovered in the 1960s. Next to it is the lighthouse which was the first to experiment (unsuccessfully) with laser light. Memorial plaques are positioned along 'Centaur Remembrance Walk' to those lost at sea.
From Point Danger, you will often see dolphins out to sea, and on a fine day there are views from Surfers Paradise to Byron Bay.
Tallebudgera Creek is a large creek on the Gold Coast which runs from the Springbrook Plateau in the west through Tallebudgera Valley to the southern slopes of Burleigh Mountain at Burleigh Heads and the Pacific Ocean in the east.
