Harbour Town Hosts Cuddly Critters

328koigerKids at Harbour Town Gold Coast are in for a treat during their school break next month: Wildlife on Wheels is hitting the center with a whole host of cuddly, crawly or cool critters.

The Currumbin Wildlife Hospital Foundation Rangers are bringing their Australian fauna educational show, with slippery snakes, spiky echidnas, slimy lizards and even a smiling crocodile, apparently. The show is free of charge, and will be full of fun facts about some of these unusual animals.

After families are finished with their free stint as Wildlife Rangers, they’ll have the opportunity to give to a good cause: for $10, the proceeds of which go to the Currumbin Wildlife Hospital Foundation, visitors can have a photo taken with their favorite furry friend of the bunch.

The center is also home to part of the Animals with Attutiude Sculpture Trail that wends its way around the Gold Coast. Academy Award winning sculpture John Cox (whose studio was responsible for visual effects in 1995’s Babe) has teamed up with other Australian artists to create 21 koala sculptures, each decorated with its own intriguing design. The sculptures are found throughout the area, and one—’Adapting to the Jungle’ by Julie Maddocks—is on display in the center.

The sculptures will be auctioned off at the end of the exhibition to help with Currumbin Wildlife Hospital Foundation continue with its mission of caring for over 7000 injured and sick animals each year.
