Spot the Gruffalo these school holidays at National Trust Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary

With school holidays right around the corner, National Trust Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary are gearing up for what is set to be a busy couple of weeks at the Sanctuary.

The Gruffalo Trail experience only opened a few months ago and is expected to once again be the most popular attraction this holiday period. The unique augmented reality app allows users to follow clues through an interactive trail to find The Gruffalo.

“We launched The Gruffalo Trail in April this year (2019) to encourage children of all ages to experience the great outdoors, whilst meeting one of their favourite characters,” said Michael Kelly, General Manager at National Trust Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary.

“If you haven’t already been to see The Gruffalo, make sure you do so these school holidays.”

For those wanting to experience something a little different, National Trust Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary offers a wide range of fun and interactive activities, including over 13 shows daily, hands on animal encounters, Behind the Scenes Tours and of course Lost Valley, one of the largest aviaries in the southern hemisphere.

The more adventurous visitors can glide through the Sanctuary on their Segway Safari or have a go at swinging through the trees on their adrenaline-filled Treetop Challenge.

For those looking to sit down and relax, there are a variety of shows on offer, including WildSkies – National Trust Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary’s free flight bird show – Blinky Bill’s Studio Adventure, the Australiana Show, the Big Fang Theory Show and Aboriginal Culture explained by the Yugambeh Aboriginal Dancers who tell stories through the art of dance.

The Sanctuary is famous for their strong variety of animal encounters offered to the public including meeting koalas, feeding capybaras, echidnas, cotton-top tamarins, training a variety of birds, walking dingoes, and cuddling Meccano, the Sanctuary’s beautiful mountain brush tail possum.

“With everything we have on offer here at the Sanctuary, everyone is guaranteed to have a lot of fun these school holidays.”
