About Currimundi

    Park features

    Walking access to the ocean beach and Currimundi Lake. The lake is ideal for family canoeing.

    The park protects coastal plant communities representative of those that once covered a large area of the Sunshine Coast—wallum heathland, woodlands and dune plant communities.

    The coastal heath and woodland supports many native bird species. Wildflowers are best viewed in late winter and spring.

    Looking after the park

    You can help protect the park so it can be enjoyed now and in the future by observing these guidelines:

    • Everything in the park (living or dead) is protected. Do not take or interfere with plants, animals, soil or rocks.
    • Leave your pets at home; they are prohibited in the conservation park. Pets can frighten or kill wildlife, annoy other visitors or become lost.
    • Take your rubbish home fore appropriat disposal. Never bury or leave rubbish in the park.
    • Bicycles and scooters are not allowed on any of the tracks within the park.
    • Stay on tracks. Do not cut corners or create new tracks as this causes erosion.
    • Keep out of fenced dune areas as these areas are sensitive to erosion and closed for rehabilitation.
    • Do not feed or leave food for animals. Human food can harm wildlife and cause some animals to become aggressive.
    • Contact the Queensland Government Wildlife Hotline to report; wildlife incidents, marine animal strike, marine stranding or an injured, sick or dead turtle, dolphine or whale.
