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.
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.
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!
