Bordered to the north by the Currumbin Creek, west by Currumbin Waters and south by Tugun, Currumbin holds plenty of appeal for buyers looking for the best of both worlds; sea and surf or sweeping views of the valley.
Currumbin, Currumbin Waters and the Currumbin Valley are renowned for their natural beauty, attracting visitors with their scenic beaches and National Parks.
Currumbin is home to Wallace Nicoll Park, the famous Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary and Currumbin Creek. Elephant Rock is another attraction, offering a great lookout with views extending back towards Surfers Paradise. Where families once occupied the same Currumbin home for generations, they are now moving on. In recent times the face of Currumbin has changed, with the older style beach homes brought down and replaced with newer Mediterranean style homes. Flight paths restrict the height of apartment blocks, especially on the hilled area overlooking Currumbin Point.
Services in the Currumbin area include a shopping centre, hospital and local transport, as well as the Coolangatta Airport nearby. Education is provided through local state primary and secondary schools, as well as a catholic primary school in Currumbin. There are more schools in surrounding suburbs, including private colleges in Andrews, Burleigh Waters and Southport. The nearest TAFE campus is in Ashmore and there is a Southern Cross University campus in Tweed Heads.
Currumbin Valley is 20 kilometres south west from Surfers Paradise, in the steeply rising hills behind Currumbin. Some of the ridge properties in this area offer magnificent, sweeping views, with the famous Currumbin Rock Pool and the Mount Cougal National Park a favourite with visitors. This area is abounding in wide-open spaces, large established trees and individualistic homes on quality acreage property.
