Detailed Information:
Gecko began its life in a small room loaned by the Currumbin Sanctuary and remained there until 1994 when the members moved across the road to an old shed and renovated that for its office and library. In 1996 Gecko had the opportunity to buy the second Currumbin State School building on the banks of Currumbin Estuary and Gecko House was born. This gave members a meeting hall and an office/library, which served it well. However in 2001 Centenary of Federation money became available and an ambitious building plan resulted in the Gecko House of today.

Gecko has grown from a small group to an effective organization grappling with the many issues confronting our City and its environment as the population continues to grow at 12,000 each year. It can only continue its work with the commitment and involvement of its members, staff, volunteers and supporters.
