We headed out here to have a quick dip before the wildlife sanctuary. It was a beautiful day and very busy! It’s great that it has good toilet facilities and a little shop across the road. Not the greatest with a 2.5 year old but...More

Currumbin Rock Pool is a beautiful, natural, deep, (bottomless it is said) fresh water pool for swimming and jumping in. Care of course must be taken with the jumping in because from under the tree there are no problems, (always swim and dive about first...More

Not an easy access but worth it. Some pools quite deep so be careful with the younger ones. Can bring a float or two. May need gloves to avoid the splinters when scrambling across fallen logs or holding on to branches on steep descend.

Taking all that effort to get there to see a small pond of stagnant water. We did not see the beauty of the spot. Facilities good but parking limited. The rock pools around mount tambourine are superior. Truly don't bother.

Amazing little spot with great photo opportunities in winter and good swimming in summer. A nice spot for a picnic.

A wonderful place to relax and have a swim (in the warmer months). There is a cafe across the road which is great it does not intrude into the peace and tranquility of the area. Young children would need to be well supervised.

Have heard rave reviews about this place but it didn't match the hype. Water looked dirty which is disappointing given the clarity of water at the beach & in the creeks. The drive however was stunning & the area so peaceful ... so it was...More

Great spot to visit particularly on a hot day. This is a pretty drive deep into the Currumbin valley. The trip does seem quite long taking approximately 40 minutes to reach the destination on winding roads,but well worth the trip. Beautiful rainforest walk as well...More
