5h. 1 year agoTook a sick magpie too them and they gave him the best care possible, sadly he couldn't be saved, sometimes nature will do that!
5Select Seals & Services Anthony B. 3 months agoWow was blown away by remarkable bird care service. I called in on Friday morning as I had a sick Bush stone-curlew & its was returned in the morning to be set free!
5Gail N. 3 months agoI found an injured turtle on my patio at 5am. Rang the 24hr phone line. The lady was helpful and pleasant. She arranged for the turtle to be collected so that he/she would be seen first thing when the hospital opened. Unfortunately the turtle was too badly hurt to be saved. However the hospital went as far as xraying to ensure there were no eggs that could be saved. I am so happy to know this service exists and go to great lengths to protect and help our wildlife. RiP Tommy Turtle.😪
5Dan M. 2 months agoA great place to be aware of if you have any injured wild life that requires attention. I was able to drop off an injured native bird which they took in gladly.
5Rachael T. 3 months agoHelpful, knowledgeable & gave great advice! We need more establishments like yours.
5Supa B. 4 months agoThey're just delightful here. We popped in with an injured lorikeet. They gladly took it in to mend it. Even gave us its patient number so we could check up on it the next day. So worthy of any donations you can give them
5catherine c. 4 months agoExtraordinary staff and volunteers and of course an array of beautiful wildlife sick and injured but so comfortable in their rehab spaces. So inspired by the care and dedication.
5Anne Y. 4 months agoFriendly Staff, lovely environment for wildlife, very organised.
5Maggie M. 7 months agoIt's a great place to visit but be prepared to spend a lot of money as everything is quite expensive. But it's worth a visit.
5Caroline W. 9 months agoI had discovered that an Echidna had fallen into my swimming pool, possibly trying to get a drink of water, as it’s been dry since the floods. The kind people at the Currumbin Wildlife Hospital directed me to call Wildcare to have volunteers come to rescue the Echidna from my lawn and bring into Hospital to check that there was no water in it’s lungs and observe for a few days. Happily the echidna survived and is being released today. I’m so glad I was able to get the little animal out of the pool, before it got too tired.
5Ross the B. 10 months agoBest place ever! They actually care and do fab job!
5Jessica D. 11 months agoThis place is amazing in what they do. We have taken a few injured birds here and very quickly were taken in.
5Tiara C. 1 year agoVery friendly staff who took in a badly injured tree frog that we found. They offered to assess his injuries and were kind enough to provide us with an update when we reached out later. I appreciate that the vets are there to help our wildlife so they can recover if possible.
5merryl S. 1 year agoI found an injured Lorikeet in the side of the road with a broken wing so took it down to these guys because I knew they would do everything possible to ensure it suvived. This is the best place to drop off injured wildlife. They give you a patient is number so you can call to enquire how the patient is going. Love what they do
5Cheryl M. 11 months agoGreat wildlife animal service. Lovely volunteers working at front office. We took a blue tongue lizard in which my 11yr old daughter found. Lizard looked like it needed some care as she looked pregnant and her tail didn't look right. Lizard got a patient ID no. so we could ring to check up on her. My daughter was thrilled to be able to do this.
5Alex M. 2 years agoCaring and communicative team, that quickly came to pick up a sick koala. They really care, and we are lucky to have such a facility for our beautiful furry friends.
5Dino M. 2 years agoThe wonderful staff at the Currumbin hospital were extremely pleasant and patient as they waited for me to drop off an injured bird I found laying on the side of the road. To have them wait till after closing time and still be so gentle and kind really pleased my heart. Thank You!
5Gentiana W. 1 year agoI dropped off an injured lorikeet that fell in our pool. Thank you for taking care of our wildlife.
5Jack Hammond (. 5 years agoAfter a donation by ACPHARM, our pharmacist Jack Hammond had the privilege of being a vet for a day. This hospital run primarily on donations and without your help they cannot help the sick and injured wildlife that come in on a daily basis. The staff and volunteers all work tirelessly to rehabilitate and release wildlife. It was such an amazing place!
5Keeah H. 1 year agoFully immersive with glass windows showing procedures throughout the day. Best time to see it is after the bird show at noon where they have a guided tour explaining the hospital and procedures that they are doing.
5Tiffany M. 1 year agoWe found a injured large flying animal but it couldn't fly we took it home until the animal hospital was opean im glad we saved it and please donate to these amazing people they help so many different wild life animals I was scared when I found out what it was but it needed help it was a mature female brown falcon she is beautiful
5Robert Y. 1 year agoCWH is an amazing place. They are not part of the Bird Sanctuary as I thought. They are independent and operate on donations and volunteers. They do fabulous work in caring for the wild life that is brought in. Literally hundreds of cases per day. They also are very active in trapping and vaccinating koalas against chlamydia which risks wiping out koala populations of the Gold Coast. Great work CWH. You do so much more than i previously thought. Thousands of wildlife patients every month. So glad to help them out.
5Terrence B. 1 year agoFantastic service these folks provide... and they do it with kindness. Thank you!
2Brad R. 3 months agoLow value. Very poorly organised. Not much to see. Little information about what to do when. Best bit is the bird show.
1Steve C. 1 year agoMy friend brought a fig bird in yesterday who she saved from being attacked by crows as a fledgling, the bird had a damaged eye (blinded) yet she pulled her back to complete health with the exception of the eye. She was advised to take her to CWH where after being cautioned by staff that it is illegal to care for wildlife without a carer's licence ("but we won't prosecute you") they took the bird assuring that after vet checks they would look to rehome her in an aviary with other special needs birds as she couldn't be released into the wild due to her restricted vision. What a crock! She called later that day to be advised they had put the bird to sleep due to the eye injury (confirmed blindness), all other vet checks were perfect. This was a healthy and happy bird (not in pain as they suggested), she was killed needlessly.
