Currumbin sits at the very heart of conservation, an inspiring urban beachside community that respectfully shares its environment with nature. Interspersed by large tracts of natural bushland with abundant native flora and fauna, Currumbin offers beachside living, and holidaying, at its best!
Geographically, Currumbin is spectacular, from its pristine beach and foreshore, to the meandering Currumbin Creek and Estuary, to its well-preserved wetlands, and spacious grassy parklands.
Two famous landmarks guard the kilometre long stretch of beachfront at Currumbin. Currumbin Rock, at the northern end, watches over the popular surf spot The Alley, known for its gentle ‘beginner’ waves and rock pools. Elephant Rock, at the southern end, stands like a sentinel alongside Currumbin Surf Club. The club provides a unique setting where you can enjoy lunch or dinner and drinks on the deck, while the waves splash over the rocks just metres below.
World leader in eco-tourism, Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, is the Southern Gold Coast’s major tourist attraction. It was established almost 60 years ago by visionary conservationist, Alex Griffiths, who gifted the Sanctuary to the people of Queensland in 1976. Today, the Sanctuary is home to more than 1,400 native wildlife animals and birds, all on display amongst the Sanctuary’s natural bushland and rainforest setting.
Currumbin Beach is also home to the Swell Sculpture Festival, a free annual outdoor event that creates a visual splendour of arts and sculpture, set amongst the spectacular backdrop of the Currumbin beachfront. The largest touring short film festival of its kind in Australia, In the Bin, is also held each year in conjunction with Swell.
