History


It is hard to imagine that Alex Griffiths (founder of Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary on the Gold Coast) could have envisioned such expansion to the iconic tourism attraction Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary. Yet, it was from humble beginnings the Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary was born.

After arriving in Currumbin, Alex Griffiths became an experienced local beekeeper (apiarist) and flower grower. He established a superb garden filled with gladioli and 12,000 named varieties, flourishing in every colour and with neat rows of white-painted beehives.

The local rainbow lorikeets and honeyeaters also shared an interest in his products. Passionate about supporting native wildlife, Alex began feeding the birds to distract them from his delicate flowers. Over time, visitors would arrive, not only to shop for the Griffiths family produce but to observe the spectacle of hundreds of birds enjoying their daily meal of honey served each afternoon.

As an increasing number of visitors arrived, and Griffiths built a small kiosk to sell honey and flowers and manage people visiting to see the lorikeets. However, his interest in native animals was not limited to the birds who visited his garden. Alex was passionate about conservation and actively lobbied to protect the local flora and fauna. His legacy now lives on at Honeyworld as a free attraction and retail store for the public to learn more abut the importance of bees to our ecology. Alex understood that bees play an essential role in maintaining the populations of plants that provide food for animals and humans!
