These pools are a stretch of smooth sloping rocks, large boulders and pebbled pathways all rested within fresh mountain waters, both deep and shallow.
At one of the Currumbin Rock Pools is a small fast-moving waterfall running over smooth rocks, which helps create a natural waterside (popular with the kids) with a shallow pool at the bottom. On the other side, there is a popular spot for thrill seekers to climb up the rocks and jump into the swimming hole. (Caution is advised as it is very difficult to gauge water depth).
Downstream, the water gets quite deep as it leads to the large swimming hole. The bank has a gradual dirt entry which gets deep quickly (so be careful). Pack a picnic as there are several gazebos with picnic tables and BBQ facilities as well as a large grassed area (perfect for a picnic and a family game of cricket).
Currumbin Rock Pools are located 12km away from Currumbin beach, although the route is well signposted, you may drive straight past it. The rock pools are down in a valley, if it wasn’t for locals cars on the side of the road, you might miss the sign.
