Don’t like Sand in your Sandwiches, prefer the Hinterland?
Follow the river 10km out of town and you will find the maybe not-so-hidden Currumbin Rock Pools.
Beautiful scenic drive along the fresh water river running through the woods, watch out for furry friends! Quite well sign posted which helps as you may lose Signal in the bush.
Currumbin Rock Pools is a brilliant alternative area for a swim and picnic without the sand in your sandwiches. There is quite a lot of shade from the overhanging trees which helps away from the beachside breeze.
We walked up the stream spotting different wildlife, swam along the stream with the current and the BEST PART: jumping off the rocks into the main rock pools.
Another great reason to visit this part of the Gold Coast away from the glitz and glam of Surfers Paradise.
