Temperatures have reached epic proportions on the Gold Coast. People are rushing down to the beaches along the coast, trying to find some relief from the heat.
We decided to head more inland, to the Currumbin Rock Pools. A big mistake. Every man and his dog (literally!) had decided to use the pools. People jostled in the shallow waters, drinking beer and jumping off the ledges above. Dogs played ‘fetch’ with their owners, splashing and running across the rocky ledges, while a gang of youths blasted hip hop music and lolled around in brightly coloured towels.
We drove on…..and found a sweet eco friendly cafe which served delicious coffees and sticky date puddings with ice cream.
