1 Kurrawa Beach
Broadbeach 4218, QLD
Kurrawa Beach (1591F) is 1 km further south and has the most extensive beach reserve of all the beach sections. The wide reserve runs for 1.5 km and incorporates the Kurrawa Surf Life Saving Club, the newest on the Gold Coast, being founded in 1958, together with a range of public facilities.
The eight surf lifesaving clubs and sixteen lifeguard towers attest to the potential hazards along this long beach. Rips are present whenever waves are breaking and deep rip channels may run out from the shoreline. Swim only in patrolled areas and avoid the rip holes and outer trough. Stay close inshore and on the attached portion of the bar.
