Currumbin Inlet To Currumbin Rock Pools Swim


Currumbin Inlet To Currumbin Rock Pools Swim, Gold Coast. Australia

The Gold Coast has some of the most beautiful stretches of sand in Australia. Whether you love to swim, surf, and paddleboard or simply relax, you'll find a beach to suit. Behind the golden beaches, below the glittering towers there's a Gold Coast unknown to most visitors and even many locals. Currumbin Creek is where the Creek meets the ocean and there are many small beaches with calm water which is good for families. 

The inlet is just behind the Palm Beach Pirate Park. The Pirate Park is a kid’s playground with limited parking; bathroom facilities and refurbished Dune Cafe close by.  Currumbin Creek is a great place to swim and also one side of the creek is an off-leash dog area. If you’re not in the mood for waves, this area is perfect to swim around in the calm clear water or bring down a Stand-Up Paddle Board or Kayak. Not all dogs love aquatic adventures to the equal degree. Some dogs will stay away from water, whether that means beach, pool, lake or river, but not our pup. Even better, if you and your dog are looking for some waves, you can just walk over the sand hill to Palm Beach. Also on the southern side, there is also Currumbin Beach itself.

From Currumbin Inlet we took a 20 minute journey to reach Currumbin Valley Rock Pools. The road leading out to Currumbin is unbelievably scenic so we urge you not to rush and soak in the nature that surrounds the area. The rock pools are known to be very popular on weekends so you can expect it to be very busy with many families and groups of friends hanging out here. The name speaks for itself, featuring a large natural swimming hole that is fed by a running stream known as Currumbin Creek. 

The large pool is surrounded by boulders and rocks. Further upstream from the main swimming hole, you can find a small waterfall and cascading springs that are shaded beneath a canopy of trees. This is one of our favorite areas to explore. Bonus is, the rock pool is Dog Friendly as long as you dog is on a leash and people friendly. After an early swim at Currumbin Inlet, it was still early morning and we had the area to ourselves for an hour, before families started arriving. Our pup (Shari) loved the swim, and she’s well trained and loves our adventures we take her on.



When you arrive at Currumbin Rock Pools Gold Coast, you’ll find plenty of spaces in the parking on the left side of the road.

Currumbin Valley Rock Pools is the perfect place to have a picnic so be sure to also bring something to eat and drink with you.

There are a number of rubbish bins provided, so if you have any trash or see any trash around the area, please pick it up and make sure to dispose of it correctly.

There are toilet facilities, an electric BBQ, and shaded picnic areas with tables and chairs for visitors to use.

A short 10-minute drive up the road from Currumbin Rockpools we highly recommend checking out another epic attraction known as Cougal Cascades. Cougal Cascades features a lush rainforest walk that leads upstream through Currumbin Valley, passing by multiple waterfalls, cascading swimming holes and epic viewpoints along the way.
