With its crystal clear waters and sparkling white sands, Currumbin in South East Queensland is regularly voted the state’s cleanest beach.
Surfers flock from far and wide to ride the waves here, and there are a handful of surf schools dotted along the beach which cater for everyone, from beginners taking their first lessons to experienced surfers looking to escape the crowds across the Tweed River.
Loads of other watersports get practiced here too, including kayaking, kite-surfing and paddleboarding.
There are year-round lifeguard patrols, plenty of public toilets and a good choice of places to eat sprinkled along the seafront, which all add up to make this a particularly popular beach with families.
As well as the cafes and restaurants dotted along the front, you’ll find barbecue areas in Wallace Nicoll Park, which backs right on to the northern end of the beach.
There are a couple of sights to see here too - Currumbin Rock is a huge rock at the northern end of the beach, and further down the beach you’ll spot the Sunbathing Lady sculpture.
And last but not least, on a clear day you’ll get top-notch views of the Surfer’s Paradise skyline from here, which is around 20-kilometres further up the coast.
