Gold Coast Holiday Retreat – Currumbin

Just south of the renowned Surfers Paradise is the small town of Currumbin. What it is most famous for is the beautiful sheltered surfing beach that has Currumbin Creek emptying into it and the Pacific Ocean.

One of the outstanding features of this beach is Currumbin Rock which stands like a sentinel some several metres tall. This rock actually separates the two beaches in the town and it is a great place to watch people having fun surfing. Because of the height of the rock, there are vistas to the north and Surfers Paradise and south to Coolangatta.

Most people who visit for the first time will certainly want accommodation in Currumbin which looks out over these magnificent views so check this out before booking holiday homes and villas all along the coast.

Things To Do In and Around Currumbin

One of the most popular places to visit in Currumbin is the Wildlife Sanctuary. Here, visitors can feed the kangaroos or cuddle the koalas. A sight which must be witnessed is the daily feeding of the area’s Rainbow Lorikeets which come in to eat every day. In the water there are huge saltwater crocodiles to be seen and these also have daily feeding times which are usually advertised.

For people who love animals in general, the park has an up to the minute facility which caters to damaged and injured animals which are brought in daily.

Just a little way inland is a venue called the Currumbin Rock Pools in Mount Cougal National Park. Water fun is on the menu here as there are many pools and cascades for the whole family to enjoy. Try finding accommodation near these facilities if it is nature that interests the family since some people don’t like the hurly burly of theme parks.

For those who want something a little more hair-raising, try out the helicopter rides. Not only will you get a flying lesson here, you will also be able to take control of the aircraft as well. This is a cool way to see the sensational coastline all along the Gold Coast and all that it has to offer.

Another great day out is the Tweed Snorkelling and Whale Watching expedition. There is plenty to see on this three hour trip and the participants will be able to swim with the turtles, dolphins and rays. Lucky people will swim with Leopard sharks too. Since there are only ten people on each trip, this is a really great way to get the feeling of space and freedom below the ocean waves.

The most magnificent animal, the Humpback whale, may also be spotted on another trip in a boat which has a 360 degree view to the ocean. The great thing about this one is - if you don’t get to see a whale, your trip is absolutely free. Again, only ten people are on board so there is plenty of room for participants to move around a little.

Still for the energetic, Geo-Nature Walks are very popular. These guided walks take in many different areas in the World Heritage National Parks situated in the Hinterland of the Gold Coast. You don’t really have to be very fit to do these walks because they are tailored to suit your level of ability and what you want to see. There are more than two hundred kilometres of track walks through some rather beautiful areas here. Some people stay for an overnight or two so that they can cover more area. Others will just undertake the walk for a morning, afternoon or full day.

Currumbin is also home to the one and only surfing museum in Queensland. Here, visitors can see how the design of the humble surfboard has changed since its inception in the 1930s. For photography buffs, look at all the exciting and scintillating shots taken from on, in and near the magnificent waves along the shoreline.

As with all towns along the coast here, there is a whole host of different rental accommodation in Currumbin to suit all pockets. Serviced apartments or holiday villas abound and even tent aficionados have places to lay their heads. It all depends on whether the holiday maker wants luxury or an absolute basic package which stretches the budget. All can be found here.

How to Get to Currumbin

Getting there is easy too since most international airlines that fly out of London Heathrow will have connections to the Gold Coast International Airport. Transfers are simple to organize and these, and accommodation, can be booked when flight tickets are being bought.

Climate in Currumbin

Since the area boasts three hundred sunshine filled days per year, there is no real bad time to come so it all depends on what kind of accommodation is available. However, for the whale watchers, the visit must be in the cooler months, as already mentioned, as they go to their mating grounds.
