Wonderful natural spot
Feb 2021
A very comfortable walk along the creek with views of the cascading waterfalls. The old sawmill takes you back in time. Very accessible, just a bit steep on the way up.

Fabulous

Good parking to this easy walk along the creek, offering an excellent lookout up to the Cougal Cascades (Currumbin Rock Slides)

A few picnic tables on hand as well as amenities. Worth going to the end-of-the-road

Great spot
Jan 2020 • Family
Came across this awesome piece of nature. Has some great swimming spots as well as a great place to explore with the family. The walkway is paved and very easy to walk along. There is also a bit of history with the old sawmill as well. Parking is very limited and at times can get out of hand with people parking everywhere. All in all worth the trip for a swim.

Easy walk and nice place to cool off
Nov 2019 • Family
Only a couple hundred meters to get to the swimming hole, and another 400m if you want to visit the disused sawmill. Lots of different holes to swim in. We chose a shallow one with a sandier section, perfect for our 4 year old.
Did come close to a snake. It is a rainforest, don’t approach the snakes people, saw some tourists hassling one.

Good family fun
Jan 2019
Great for older kids who are confident to jump off the rocks and are strong swimmers. Fresh water to cool off in and nice for a day trip with a picnic basket. Not so good for toddlers, the elderly who have trouble on uneven surfaces or those that don't like not seeing the bottom!

Lovely after rain
Oct 2019
Visited the Cascades after heavy rain and they were flowing quite fast. It’s just lovely - gorgeous tall trees all the way - great for photos. There’s a small car park at the bottom then a paved walk to the top which while not exactly steep or very long - it is uphill so might be a challenge for someone with mobility issues.

A little slice of tranquility
Sep 2019 • Couples
The drive up to the cascades passes Currumbin Rock Pools , which in itself is a lovely spot for a picnic and swim on the hotter days , but the cascades are just small slice of heaven.Car parking spaces are a bit limited so be tolerant ,the walk is very easy and runs beside the creek so you can view the cascades from the track ,but the true joy comes from scrambling down off the track to the rock shelves and the cascades themselves , if you can get there without a lot of people , the peace and serenity is unbelievable.So worth the walk and the effort.John and Gina.

Quiet. Lovely area.
Aug 2019 • Couples
The Mt Cougal section of Springbrook National Park is about 6-7km further down the road from Currumbin Rock Pools. It is fairly quiet, with only some 12-14 spaces in car park. There are however toilets. The walking path is several hundred metres long, and generally well made with asphalt. There is a number of bumps (from tree roots) and hollows, but it is readily suitable for a child’s stroller/pram. There is plenty of shade on the path, although a reasonable length of the trip out from the car park is uphill. A nice walk, and a scenic drive to get there.

Magnificent and Tranquil
Jul 2019 • Family
Gorgeous little walking track along the river with reasonable access along to the various rock pools and cascades. A lovely way to spend some time. I can imagine in the warmer weather it would be wonderful to have a swim, but it was a little too cold for our tastes for the cooler months.

Amazing
Mar 2019 • Friends
Beautiful small waterfalls and only a short walk to get there. Lots of pools to swim in the mountain water. Breath taking talk rainforest trees surrounding it.

Not ideal for little kids as very rocky and a bit difficult to get down there.

Only a short drive from Currumbin beaches too
