Australia: The Land Where Time Began

A biography of the Australian continent 

Currimundi Conservation Park

What's special?

In the middle of the busy resort of Caloundra lies this small remnant of wallum heath once common on the Sunshine Coast.

Exploring Currimundi

Discover the special beauty of this unspoilt stretch of coastline. Go for a quiet stroll beside the lake.

Look for birds in the heath. See brown honeyeaters, fairy wrens, native finches, noisy friarbirds. Enjoy the wildflowers late winter and spring.

Picnic next door in the local authority picnic area where picnic tables and barbecues are provided. Camping is not allowed in the park.


A short track leads from Coongarra Esplanade through the park to the beach. Wear a hat and sunscreen.


Wheelchairs can access the first 130m of the walking track to the lake lookout.

Getting there

The park is on Currimundi Lake’s northern shore, just north of Caloundra. Head north along the Nicklin Way. Turn right into Gayandi Street then right into Madara Drive which becomes Coongarra Esplanade and leads to the park.
