Photographer's Note

This is Elephant Rock at Currumbin beach. It is situated where the Currumbin Creek meets the ocean.

Currumbin is a photographer's paradise with spectacular views north and south. The gentle surf and small rock pools make the area's beaches popular with young families. Fishing is popular in the picturesque Currumbin Creek

Currumbin has a unique character with respect to other beachside suburbs – it's where the bush meet the beach, an area of vegetated coastal dune areas and parkland. Elephant Rock and Currumbin Rock enclose a popular surfing beach.

This was taken at sunrise and this surfer had climbed on the rock to check out the waves before deciding to give it a go. As I sat watching the sunrise the surfers started to arrive, they climb over the rockpools to a gap in the rocks and launch themselves into the swell and then ride the waves into the mouth of the river. It looked a bit dangerous but they seem to have the launch down to a fine art.
