It’s a delightful way to spend a few hours on a tranquil summer day. This is a popular place for families during summer – but with Queensland’s temperate climate, the rock pools make an interesting and enjoyable day out all year-round! To reach the pools, you’ll take a picturesque, relaxing drive through the lush, green Currumbin Valley and into the mountains where the Currumbin Creek is born. You can head straight for the Currumbin rock pools, which are located just 12km up the valley from Currumbin Beach – or you can turn off the radio, wind down the window and enjoy the sight, smell and sound of nature as you take in a number of interesting sights along the way. Your journey will take you past nurseries, dairies and stud farms where animals graze contentedly in velvety paddocks and local farmers (seasonally) sell organically grown produce on the roadside. And past the lovely Olsen’s Bird Gardens, set in eight hectares of lush subtropical rainforest. A little further on, is the Crystal Cottage which sells a large range of crystals, gemstones and jewellery.
A short distance from here, you’ll come across the Currumbin rock pools. Enjoy a swim in the Currumbin rock pools on the Gold Coast, where you’ll discover crystal clear mountain waters; warm, sun-drenched boulders, & welcoming shade. The Currumbin rock pools are an ideal setting for a leisurely picnic lunch, with several sheltered picnic tables placed to take advantage of the cool, shady gum trees and tall pines.
All in all, this one small area of the Gold Coast offers a veritable smorgasbord of sights and activities to keep even the most discerning tourist (or local) occupied for a good, full day! Don’t just plan it … do it!
