Gold Coast Hinterland

Gold Coast Hinterland

With lush rainforest, rustic cafes, spectacular views, picturesque wineries and wonderful walks, the Gold Coast Hinterland is the Gold Coast's best-kept secret.

While nearby Surfers Paradise and Byron Bay are often swamped by tourists the Gold Coast Hinterland retains an endearing community spirit. An electric group of local artists exhibit their works, cosy restaurants and cafes hug the sidewalk and atmosphere abounds.

Located 50 minutes drive from the coastal strip and 25 minutes from Ruffles Lodge, the Gold Coast Hinterland contains an amazing 29 national parks and nature reserves and World Heritage-listed national parks. It is also home to Australia's largest area of subtropical rainforest, the world's biggest volcanic caldera (of which Mt Warning is the "core") and 300kms of walking trails

Gold Coast Hinterland Things to Do and See

The Gold Coast Hinterland has something for everybody. Adventurers can get a shot of adrenaline with abseiling, hang gliding, horse riding and 4WD safaris. Nature lovers can enjoy the boundless walking trails, scenic drives that meander through subtropical rainforest or typical Australian bush country and breathtaking lookouts. More leisurely pursuits include bird-watching, browsing through quaint arts and crafts galleries, enjoying lunch and an ale in a country pub or devonshire tea in one of the many cafes that dot the Gold Coast Hinterland, or sampling local wines at one of the local vineyards.

The Gold Coast Hinterland is also home to the Springbrook National Park, Lamington National Park, and the Purlingbrook Falls.
