Gold Coast Hinterland

Providing the green behind the gold, the Gold Coast Hinterland is full of unspoilt National Parks and charming mountain villages, filled with antiques, artisan galleries and decadent caramel fudge worth the drive.

  • Saddle-up for a foodie’s cycling tour of Mount Tamborine’s local produce, including cellar doors, cheeses and the brewery.

At one with the animals

  • Soar through the forest canopy on an elevated skywalk at Lamington National Park or Mount Tamborine.
  • Join a nocturnal eco-certified tour to Natural Bridge to spot a luminous colony of glowworms.
  • Roam market stalls and retreat back to your bush cabin with a glass of locally produced wine and a roaring fireplace.
