The Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary is a popular wildlife park on the Gold Coast, QLD. Funded by the National Trust, we were contracted for the design and construction of a new exterior shade structure for their famous bird show.
The area consists of an outdoor amphitheatre that recently underwent a significant redevelopment to cater to the ever growing popularity of the bird show. Part of this redevelopment included upgrading the existing structure to a much larger shade solution that also complimented the renovations of the area.
The shade solution needed to take into consideration the birds which fly freely above the audience under the structure. The new structure needed to provide ample clearance for the birds as well as completely protect the audience from the weather.
One of the most important aspects of the structure’s design was the arch at the front which was suspended on columns. This allowed the appropriate clearances for the birds to fly under the structure and over the crowd.
