Now really, I think I have found my favourite place. Currumbin Creek Road. I’m loving this street for the same reasons I used to love Nobby’s so much – then the op shops went away and so did I. Now let me run you though my perfectly wonderful day…
Stop one: Dust Temple.
Every visit you notice something that some how you missed the last time. This time I spotted this stunning wall of windows. This place has the ability to get the imagination going – imagine having a sun room, looking out to an overgrown garden, made completely out of old windows – that is what I’m thinking about sitting here sipping my coffee. The books sitting on the table we sit at just happen to be by Roald Dahl & about Andy Warhol, probably the two people who influenced the way I think about the world the most.
Stop Two: Hinge Gallery
Dust Temple is the home of Hinge Gallery with two spaces within the two neighbouring buildings. This is not the usual cafe art gallery, this is a real gallery with ever changing exhibitions and top quality art works from emerging artists.
Stop Three: Op Shops
There are currently two oppys on Currumbin Creek Road. One with all clothing at a bargain rate. The second one spills out the huge open doors with a mezzanine level filled with books.
Stop Four: Pop Taco
Pop Taco HQ has recently opened four days a week but already has built a pretty solid reputation with its travelling taqueria and recipes direct from Mexico City and central Mexico. Tacos & Tortas are the go today! We chose to share a Torta Milanese so that we could feast on tacos.
