BITES

Currumbin’s beach­front restau­rant strip may be small, but boy, does it pack a lot in. From the bright pink acai bowls from the Salt Mill to the stun­ning panoramic views of the Ele­phant Rock Cafe, Currumbin’s food scene is noth­ing if not ver­sa­tile. Head up the road to Currumbin Wa­ters for a caf­feine hit at Neigh­bour­hood Es­presso or the best cheap Asian feast around at Zi­pang.

SIGHTS

It’s one of the last stops on the Gold Coast, but a trip to Currumbin is def­i­nitely worth the drive – and top­ping the list of must sees has to be Currumbin Wildlife Sanc­tu­ary. A bit of a Gold Coast in­sti­tu­tion, the sanc­tu­ary is home to some of Queens­land’s cutest cit­i­zens – and some pretty scary ones too. Whether you spend a day in the sanc­tu­ary it­self or half-an-hour feed­ing the rain­bow lori­keets, it’s cer­tainly a day to re­mem­ber.

SHOP

When it comes to shop­ping ‘small’, Currumbin is your go-to. There's ev­ery­thing from awe­some farm­ers’ mar­kets, like the Currumbin Com­mu­nity Mar­kets and the Sanc­tu­ary mar­kets, to great lo­cal bou­tiques. Some of our favourites are So Jaded, the Young Ones and Lush, which can all be found right next to each other on Pa­cific Pa­rade. So handy!
