The Gold Coast Hinterland is untouched lush beauty in all its green glory stretching as far as the eye can see. A true hidden gem of the Gold Coast, our Hinterland breathes in harmony with the pulse of the Pacific Ocean swells that pound our golden beaches; we are proudly green and gold. Be awestruck on bushwalks through subtropical rainforests that house living ancient relics and lava flows, crystal waterfalls cascading into rock pools and abundant native wildlife; it’s a multi-sensory overload. Such is its pristine condition and under-canopy diversity, the Hinterland’s national parks have been World Heritage listed by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation. The area is a hotbed for the international science and conservation community which means you truly will explore one of the earth’s best eco-experiences. Lamington and Springbrook National Parks are the best places to set off with official bushwalks in place, and the quaint village of Mount Tamborine is the ideal stop-off to grab a bit to eat in an ornate café or boutique winery; with Gallery Walk a lovely stroll of art galleries and quaint antique and homewares stores.

With theme parks offering a terrific combo of heart-warming encounters and non-stop action; nowhere in Australia delivers as many smiles and happy memories as the Gold Coast.
