Local Attractions

Whether you are young or young at heart there is plenty to do in and around Kirra and the Southern Gold Coast.  The local beaches: Kirra Beach, Coolangatta Beach, Rainbow Bay, Greenmount Bay, Duranbah (D’bah) Beach and Snapper Rocks are renowned for surfing and there is a scenic Ocean way walk to delight in the beauty of the coastline.


During the whale migration (both north and south) it is quite common to see whales quite close to the shore as the topography of this end of the coast juts out somewhat to afford a closer view to these majestic cetaceans.

Known as the green behind the gold, you can visit our beautiful Hinterland region to experience breathtaking scenery and bushwalks amongst world heritage listed national parks. The Currumbin Rock pools, Border Ranges, Springbrook National Park, Mount Cougal Border track, Lamington National Park, Mt Tambourine Sky Walk and many more natural sites are within easy reach by car or tour.


Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary is a near and delightful attraction that the whole family can enjoy.  They do fabulous conservation work and provide visitors with so many opportunities to get up close to amazing wildlife with their animal encounter packages and daily shows.

The massive Twin Towns RSL Club is easy to enjoy, with free shows, events and international acts headlining regularly and just a pleasant walk away.

Surf, golf and bowls clubs are easily accessible from Kirra Beach Apartments.

For the more adventurous there are helicopter flights, parachuting, paragliding, scuba diving and even kite surfing!  Fishing, whale watching and boating trips are also available.

Kirra Reef is straight off shore from Kirra Beach and can be accessed direct from the beach-yes an experienced diver wouldn’t even need a boat! See the link on ABC for just how good the diving can be!


The tandem parachute even lands on the beach about half way between Kirra and North Kirra SLSC –a regular and exciting spectacle that my mum did on her 80th birthday!
