The rock pools in Currumbin are the perfect way to chill off during a stifling summer season in the Gold Coast. Natural rock slides, a rope swing, and no park rangers nagging at you for doing something a little dangerous. It’s a magical place to kick back with friends, reconnect with nature, and escape from the fabricated ‘Surfers Paradise.’

A perfect day in Gold Coast? An early morning surf in light offshore winds, dollar coffee at 7-Eleven, sun baking on the beach, and a night out in Broadbeach.
For the visitor: Watch the sunrise, check out the rock pools, go for a hike in Burleigh Heads.
A perfect meal? Eating out is too expensive, unless it’s at Raw Energy in Coolangatta. The perfect home meal is avocado toast: Reed avocados, burgen bread, fresh lime, sea salt, & chili flakes.
A little known fact about where you live? Surfers Paradise is not the place to surf.
Where is your favorite place in the world? Noosa,Queensland, Australia
