A beautiful short stroll along bubbling Currumbin Creek under towering trees to a swimming hole with a hanging vine.
This lightly trafficked walk starts from a small car park on Bains Road in Currumbin Valley.
The walk is very short, along the banks of Currumbin Creek.
A beautiful, old wooden one-way bridge is crossed to get to the park, with the creek bubbling over a shallow rock-bed underneath.
The park has a few picnic tables and plenty of grassy spots to spread out under towering caphora trees that beautifully drop leaves during autumn.
A short stroll along the bank of the creek takes you to a shallow swimming hole with a few rope swings and a picturesque vine that hangs across the water.
It is highly recommended not to sit or swing on the vine, so that it can be preserved for everyone to enjoy.
The walk is very short and can be paired with nearby Currumbin Rock Pools, or longer walks in nearby Springbrook National Park.
Track: There is no designated track. Instead, just follow the bank of the river to just past the hanging vine.
Difficulty: The walk is suitable for all fitness levels.
Direction: The walk is an out-and-back track that returns the way it came.
The walk starts from a small car park on Bains Road (just off Currumbin Creek Road) in Currumbin Valley, 1.25 hours drive south of Brisbane.
Parking is limited, however the location is typically quiet.
