The Undercurrent was born from a desire to flaunt the Gold Coast through the eyes of locals. Featuring only local Gold Coast artists who share in a passion for this city’s unique culture, and offer them the opportunity to create projects on their home turf. The Undercurrent’s name is two-fold; a nod to our thriving surf culture and unveiling a side of the Gold Coast that may not be common knowledge, but definitely should be. Share your pride in this city by purchasing one of these unique t-shirts.

Like a few of the Gold Coast’s coastal suburbs, Miami was named after its larger Florida counterpart. Blessed with a beautiful beach and a host of beach shacks which remind you of the old Gold Coast, you may stumble across history on every corner. Taking up a large portion of the laidback suburb is Miami State High School which opened in 1963. A larger than life yellow sign reading ‘Hi Miami High’ was erected into the hillside by a former principal who was inspired by the Hollywood sign in 1979. Now reading simply ‘Miami High’, the sign is now heritage listed due to its cultural significance to the area. For 69 years, Miami was also home to the iconic Miami Ice, an ice factory built in 1944 from two army huts which were recycled from the nearby US military camp during World War II. The building was immortalised on film by Aussie music legend John Farnham when he used Miami Ice in his Two Strong Hearts film clip.
