While the Gold Coast is home to a whole lotta diversity, Currumbin holds a special sweet spot in our hearts. Rich with beachy vibes, tropical hideaways and lush valley escapes; it’s easy to see why the locals are crazy about Currumbin. A quick scoot down the road from GC’s hustle bustle, soak up the coastal fusion of our favourite rainforest getaway mixed with good food, great banter and excellent brews. Here’s a taster of what you can expect from one of the Gold Coast’s favourite treasures.
Worship caffeine at Currumbin’s norti-cool Portside Coffee (get it?). Kick back under a winter sun the right way – with a homemade cookie in one hand and a decadent brownie in the other. Pop by on Thursday for pastry days where freshly baked croissants will lead you nose-first into the local’s favourite coffee house.
Currumbin Valley Harvest
Open to the public on Saturday and Sunday mornings, you’ll fall head over heels for Currumbin’s favourite eco friendly market. Currumbin Valley Harvest is your go-to for locally grown fruit and veg, fresh blooms and sustainably sourced fruit juices. Um, yum!
The Salt Mill
Perfectly positioned a stones throw from Currumbin’s dazzling beach, the locals can’t get enough of The Salt Mills green juices, fruit stacked acai’s and friendly atmosphere. Whether you’re combining a refreshing swim with a late brunch or simply running to your next slice of raw carrot cake, this seaside bliss fest is the place to be on your next visit to the big C.
Rustic chic meets thirst-quenching bevvies. A visit to Currumbin simply isn’t complete without stopping into Balter HQ for a frothy beer with your mates. The creation of surfing champ dream team, Mick Fanning, Joel Parkinson and a bunch more, this seriously huge warehouse (that can be hired out privately too), is definitely worth checking out and planning to catch an uber home, ahead of time.
PBC Farmers Markets
Supporting local growers never felt so fabulous. Browse a range of second hand fashion, hand made home wares and organic produce at Currumbin State School each Saturday morning. A relic on the Gold Coast, this crew has been providing locals with the goods for over 14 years so there’s no questioning that PBC know their stuff – boogie on down this weekend!
Nectar Espresso Currumbin
More than your average café, Nectar Currumbin is a remote worker’s best friend. Just one year old, these guys boast killer event spaces and laptop friendly chilling hubs so that you can get to work without ever feeling the need to move along. Stocking Blackboard Coffee’s delicious organic brews, you can expect seriously heart-warming treats at this surfer-loving hangout.
Currumbin Rock Pools
An infamous hot spot in summertime, Currumbin Rock Pools is also the perfect location for picnics on a Sunday arvo – paired with a crisp sav and your cheese haul from PBC. Be entranced by the calming streams of fresh water dancing between rock pools while you laze under towering rainforest greenery.
