Cheap and Fun Day Out on the Gold Coast - Currumbin Rock Pools

by Pool Builders on 08-16-2010 in Articles

Are you looking for a cheap and fun day out for the whole family?

Why not try the Currumbin Rock Pools.

They are situated on Currumbin Creek Road, turn off the Gold Coast Highway at Currumbin and follow the signs, from the Gold Coast Highway it is a very picturesque drive, where you travel away from the beach and into the picturesque countryside of the Currumbin Valley. Once you reach the turnoff at the Gold Coast Highway it takes around 10 - 15 minutes to get to the Rock Pools.

It is a lovely setting in rural Gold Coast, it has a lovely running stream with lots of little rock pools for the kids to play in. My kids love going and building a dam with rocks and blocking the creek. There is also a big pool where you can swim or relax on one of the many rocks around the edges. You will see teenagers and adults jumping into the water from rocks above the rock pool, however this is not advised as it can be unsafe. Please also remember that there are no life guards patrolling the area so make sure you supervise your kids at all times.

Amenities include grassy area for playing games, bbq's and toilets. Also keep in mind that there are no shops nearby, so you will need to be prepared.

If you are feeling adventurous you can follow the stream along further upstream to the Cougar National Park where you find a great bushwalk to an abandoned sawmill.

I really recommend a visit to Currumbin Rock Pools as it is a great day out for the whole family!!
