Nature and Beaches
Little more than half an hour's trip from the Gold Coast you will find a great diversity of national parks with waterfalls, bush tracks, caves, glow worms, and wonderful wildlife. Being one of the most biologically diverse regions in Australia, the Hinterland's densely forested McPherson Range is home to a host of beautiful wildlife and tropical plant species. From Tamborine Mountain in the north to Lamington and Springbrook National Parks in the south, the Gold Coast's Hinterland offers spectacular views and natural wonders. The regions National Parks are a paradise for walkers with well maintained tracks and plenty of interpretive information throughout the parks. We recommend Springbrook, Natural Bridge, Mt Tamborine and North Stradbroke Island as the best spots for nature experiences. For tours to get you there, talk to our reception staff.
