Sanctuary Cove is home to copious breeds of wildlife. The fauna compliment Sanctuary Cove in a way that restores life and personality to the Northern Gold Coast. One can only appreciate the beauty and tranquility that the wildlife instill after witnessing a flock of corellas in flight late afternoon or a group of kangaroos basking in the early morning sunlight.From kangaroos to kookaburras sitting in the old gum tree, the selection is vast and employs an appreciation that must be witnessed firsthand. The Cove is home to various breeds of fish, reptiles, insects, mammals, amphibians and birds that each instills its’ own unique qualities to Gores’ Wonderland. Sanctuary Cove has been listed as an Audubon Wildlife Sanctuary, ensuring The Cove remains a valuable part of the local conservation landscape and maintains eco-friendly golf courses. Sanctuary Cove is renowned for being a haven for the rich and famous. The celebrities don’t stop rolling in at mere humans though, movie star geese are also calling Sanctuary Cove home.
A number of the white geese that populate the pristine lakes within Sanctuary Cove can also be seen in the movie ‘Babe’. A heartfelt film about a talking pig that believes it can round up sheep as well as dogs, the geese (also talking) in the film play haggling and impressive supporting roles. Shortly after the film was released in 1995, the geese were relocated to Sanctuary Cove where they remain in solitude to this day
