      Currumbin Wildlife Hospital Foundation.

      The charity of choice for the Gold Coast Beach Parade, is the Currumbin Wildlife Hospital Foundation. The Foundation was created to secure the future of Australia’s wildlife. 

      The Foundation directly funds Currumbin Wildlife Hospital and its vital work treating, rehabilitating and releasing sick, injured and orphaned native wildlife. 

      The Hospital has grown to be one of the busiest wildlife hospitals in the world, admitting  14000 animals a year – a service that is provided free of charge to the community. 

      The skilled and experienced veterinary team, supported by volunteers, prides itself in providing the highest level of veterinary care to all of their patients. 

      As a charity, Currumbin Wildlife Hospital Foundation relies on donations and public support to continue this free service to the community…which is why community fundraising events and initiatives like the Gold Coast Beach Parade are so important to us.

      Did you know? 

      • Currumbin Wildlife Hospital has released over 140,000 native animals back into the wild since the first vet started worked in 1989. 

      • The Wildlife Hospital treats nearly 600 wild koalas every year. 

      • It takes $7,000 to treat, rehabilitate and release one koala back to the wild.

      Currumbin Wildlife Hospital Foundation needs to raise $1.8 million annually to save Australia’s wildlife and find cures for devastating diseases threatening our native species such as the koala. 

      By raising funds and awareness Currumbin Wildlife Hospital Foundation aims to continue its mission of protecting and preserving our native wildlife for future generations to enjoy.

      We look forward to having everyone walk and help us.

      On behalf of the 14,000 + wildlife our Hospital admits annually we send a huge THANK YOU.

        The Record

        The record will be measured by the number of participants wearing a visor(with Koala ears) in beachwear who complete the parade route.

          1. The Gold Coast Beach Parade walk will happen on Burleigh beach opposite Justins Park, just north of the Mowbray Park SLSC. Participants will walk down the beach in single file to North Burleigh SLSC turning at the check point, and return down along the beach front to Burleigh again, and be counted as you enter the main stage area. The parade route is 3 km.
          2. There is a start, turn 1, turn 2 and finish checkpoints, where all participants will be electronically identified with their official wristband and counted as having completed the whole distance passing through all designated check points.
          3. A start signal will be used. Electronic registration(wristbands) of all participants must be used, and all participants must pass through designated check points along the route.
          4. There is a main stage on the beach, with a suspended counter over the catwalk. All participants finish the parade by walking down the catwalk, with the counter ticking over the numbers.
          5. Beachwear is classified for the gentlemen — men’s board shorts, lycra swimmers(budgies speedos etc), rashies, beach wear. For the ladies — one piece swimsuit, two piece swimsuit, rashie or tankini or wrap.  Thus only participants who meet this standard of dress can be qualified.  That is, males, females and kids in beachwear only wearing a visor.
          6. There will be a beachwear parade on the stage following the event, in a promotion of beachwear manufacturers and push to ‘buy local’
