0 out of 5 stars (based on 0 reviews)
Entrance to the Surf World Museum in Currumbin, Gold Coast, Queensland

Surf World is a museum with Australia’s largest collection of surfboards and displays of memorabilia showing the culture of Gold Coast beach and surfing heritage in Australia.

The Big Surfboard outside Surf World Museum in Currumbin Gold Coast

Surf Word is opposite the Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary Brown Sign link and next door to Superbee Honeyworld. Parking is found in the same carpark but you can park before going through the boom gate/booth for free parking when attending Surf World.

It is easy to spot as you enter as it is also a Big Things member with a Big Surfboard out the front of the entrance. The Big Surfboard stands prominently high next to the 2-story museum building.

Opening in 2009, the idea started much earlier in the 1990s, originating with local Gold Coast surfers, photographers, board makers and collectors. The collections and photographs owned by Darryl Barnet, Mal Sutherland, Carl Tanner, and Darryl Miller started the displays at the museum.

The collection is over 100 surfboards, the earliest dating from 1915 and continue through the decades to today’s modern surf boards.
