Sunshine Coast

Currimundi


Description

Currimundi is located on the northern boundary of the Caloundra area of the Sunshine Coast. It was named by Sir Leslie Wilson, using the local aboriginal name for the area, Garrimundi or Girrimundi, meaning 'Place of flying foxes'.

Winner of "Queensland's Cleanest Beach" award in 2004, Currimundi is certainly a gem in the crown of glorious beach areas in the Sunshine Coast region. Doubly blessed with a natural lake connected to a long and unspoilt stretch of beautiful surf beach, it is the place to relax for a few hours or stay a little longer.

Kids and adults alike love the lake's large expanse of water for swimming and frolicking on the sandy shores. The lake and beachfront have extensive parks and walkways for the public to enjoy before or after a swim in the surf or the calm waters of the lake. The lake is perfect for canoeing, kayaking and just paddling about. Try fishing from the shore or in a small motorised boat.

On the northern shore of Lake Currimundi is an area protected from development that showcases the natural beauty of the area. The Currimundi Lake Conservation Park is an unspoilt area of coastline and wallum heath. Check out the native wildflowers in early Spring. Enjoy picnicking, birdwatching and studying nature, taking long bushwalks and admiring the views from the lookout. People in wheelchairs can use the first 130 metres of the walking track to the lake lookout.
