Currumbin creek fishing platform

Throw a line in a Beree-Badalla Reserve! Enjoy two fishing platforms located along a boardwalk that winds across mangrove flats near Palm Beach-Currumbin High. The boardwalk connects the Thrower Drive boat ramp car park to the Gold Coast Highway underpass, on the northern banks of Currumbin Creek. The platforms are located about one kilometre upstream of the tidal entrance of Currumbin Creek.

We've put together some helpful tips so you can make the most of it.

Platform location

Find on Google maps.

Comfort features

Each fishing platform has a shade cover and seat.

Good catches

What are you likely to catch? Prepare and keep your eye out for:

  • Whiting
  • Flathead
  • Flounder (occasional)
  • Squid (during cooler months)
  • Sand crabs (occasional)

Best baits

Make the most of it with pippies, yabbies and beach worms.

Best tides

Last of the run out and during the first few hours of the run in. Best to fish when water is murky, not during clear water flows.

Best gear

A light, eight-foot estuary outfit matched up with a two- to four-kilogram line.

Care for our waterways

You can help protect our waterways and fish stocks, by doing a few simple things:

  1. Dispose of all rubbish, bait bags and tangled fishing lines thoughtfully.
  2. Practice catch and release, or only keep the fish that you need.
  3. Observe bag limits
  4. Reporting any sightings of noxious fish (such as tilapia, carp and gambusia) to the Department of Agriculture and Fisheries.
