Moderate track
Starting from the car park off Duringan Street, this walk takes you on a circuit in the coastal and urban areas of Currumbin, visiting beaches, parks and lookouts along the way. Enjoy a leisurely stroll around and in the suburbs as you get acquainted with the area. Enjoy the panoramic coastal views over the various beaches, then head into the urban part of the city as you go through lovely little parks with plenty of greenery. After the urban section, you’ll cross the Currumbin Creek to visit the Beree-Badalla Reserve of Palm Beach. Although it’s not a remote hike that’ll make you forget about real life, this customizable track can still give you a good exercise whilst enjoying the advantages of being in the city. Sunbathe in the gorgeous beaches, dive into the welcoming waters of the Pacific and eat at any restaurant of your choice. Remember to put on sunscreen and wear a hat. Dogs are allowed on leash along the track, but you’ll need to follow the signage and avoid flagged areas when it comes to the beaches. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
