Crowned Australia’s Cleanest Beach in 2013, Currumbin is home to one of the most impressive and popular stretches of beachfront coastline on the Southern Gold Coast. Inspired by an eco-friendly community, this beachside village offers spectacular scenery, relaxed charm, boutique shops and dining, and pristine waterways to enjoy.
A haven for watersports, the Currumbin Creek and Estuary is where you will find an endless amount of activity on the water – including paddle boarding, fishing, boating, surfing, kite boarding, kayaking and swimming, as well as plenty of local pelicans and sea birds skimming for a tasty catch.
The kilometre long stretch of beachfront has two famous landmarks – Currumbin Rock, at the northern end, peaks over the popular surf spot The Alley, known for its gentle ‘beginner’ waves and rock pools; while Elephant Rock, at the southern end, stands 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.
A world leader in eco-tourism, Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary is the Southern Gold Coast’s major tourist attraction. It was established in 1947 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 provides a spectacular backdrop for events and festivals throughout the year, as well as a perfect spot to enjoy a leisurely walk before heading to nearby cafes and restaurants. Several award-winning Clubs and dining venues have added to Currumbin’s reputation as a must-visit destination.
