Day Trip To Currumbin Rock Pools Gold Coast



Out of bed and on the highway then a picturesque, relaxing drive through the dense, green Currumbin Valley, where we enjoyed a good early morning swim at the Currumbin rock pools on the Gold Coast.   The Currumbin rock pools are a very popular place and family favourite during summer, but with the Gold Coast’s temperate climate, the rock pools make an exciting and pleasurable day out every day of the year. The bonus for us was we were the only ones there. 




At the west end of the Rock Pools, the pools themselves are surrounded by big, level boulders to create an ideal deck to catch some of the sun’s rays! A huge range of flat, gently sloping rocks provides an ideal playground for kids to adventure around.




Everyone will simply enjoy the spa-like mini water rapids, where creek water bubbles happily over smooth rock faces. With its crystal-clear mountain spring water, the deeper parts of the eastern end make for a great swimming lagoon and an ideal spot for a swim in Gold Coast’s warmer months of the year. There are also a few popular launching points that locals used to jump off the tops of the rocks into the deep clear waters below.



The Currumbin rock pools are also a great place for a relaxing picnic lunch, boasting several sheltered picnic tables, which have been placed strategically to take advantage of the tall shady gum trees and towering pines. The large, grassy areas next to the Currumbin rock pools make for a perfect space for a family game of cricket or a place for the kids to simply around run around.

We then jumped back in the ute and headed back to Currumbin Spit. It’s a dog’s life at Palm Beach Spit. (Known also as Currumbin Spit)



Shari (our pup) loves this place, plus it’s a dog owner’s paradise for exercising your dog, just follow the councils signage and you and your pooch have a great time. Much of the area is geared for them. Walk them, let them run or perhaps have a dip in the lagoon in the designated area. It’s a great Gold Coast walk for you and a Gold Coast exercise area for your dog.

  1. I wish I had known about this place when we were at the Gold Coast earlier this year! This awesome. Your dog is absolutely adorable too. Looks like she loves the water (I am assuming from the name she is a girl dog!)

  5. We have never been to Australia but Natural swimming pool sounds like a place my kids as well as my Yorkie would enjoy. I like places which are pet friendly. Shari sure looks happy :)

  8. What a fantastic little spot for swimming! It makes me miss the hot natural springs in Iceland so I'd love to have these on my doorstep! Hope there are no crocs about :)

    1. Ya, Croc's. No chance of croc's on the Gold Coast. Most crocodiles live in waterways north of Australia. Top end of Queensland and Northern Territory. Only thing you have to worry about is how cold the water is because it's natural rain water coming down from the Gold Coast Hinterlands. Fresh, clear water.
