Barnes Auto Co Covers Currumbin
Currumbin (/kəˈrʌmbən/ kə-RUM-bən) is a coastal suburb in the Gold Coast region of Queensland, Australia. At the 2011 Census, Currumbin had a population of 2,785. From 1947 onwards, the iconic Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary has been welcoming tourists.
Samuel William Grey was the first European to acquire land in the area. In 1904, Isle, Love and Co advertised the first subdivisions in Currumbin. The first hotel was built by Wallace McDonald Nicoll in 1910 on Duringan Street overlooking the mouth of the Currumbin Creek. During this period tourism and industry significantly increased in the beach side and valley areas of Currumbin. Many of the houses at Currumbin date from the period of later subdivisions in the 1920s. The area also contains a number of fibro beach houses. Since then later development has occurred including some high rise backing onto the hillside at Pacific Parade.
