Welcome to Surfworld Gold Coast - The Museum of Surfing!

Located at Currumbin Beach in the heart of the beautiful Gold Coast, Australia's premier surfing destination, our museum is home to one of the country's most comprehensive and largest collections of surfing artifacts. We proudly display an extensive array of premier and significant surfboards, memorabilia, photography, art, periodicals, trophies and films, each piece telling a unique story about the sport's rich history and vibrant culture.

But our reach doesn't stop there. Surfworld Gold Coast provides access to numerous other collections from both Australia and overseas, bringing a global perspective to the surfing experience. Whether you're a seasoned surfer eager to delve deeper into your passion or a newcomer curious about the sport's heritage and culture, our museum promises an immersive and educational experience.
