Holiday Location - Gold Coast Hinterland

The Gold Coast Hinterland is a wonderfully diverse region in South East Queensland, ranging from Tamborine Mountain in the north to Lamington National Park and Springbrook National Park in the south. Full of wonderful contrast and one of the most biologically diverse regions in Australia, the hinterland contains more than 100,000 hectares of National Parks and reserves with over 300kms of well maintained bushwalking trails. The hinterland is renowned for its lush subtropical rainforest, the world's biggest volcanic caldera, and a patchwork of picturesque wineries, farmlands, canyons and valleys, featuring a host of beautiful wildlife, birds and tropical plants.

The Gold Coast Hinterland retains an endearing community spirit. While the world heritage national parks are the primary attractions for most offering boundless walking trails, scenic drives and breathtaking scenery, the hinterland provides something for everybody. Browse through quaint arts and crafts galleries and the weekend markets, enjoy lunch in a country pub or Devonshire tea in a mountainside café, or get your adrenaline boost with abseiling, hang gliding, horse riding and 4WD safaris. The Gold Coast Hinterland Wine Trail is also a favourite, where visitors can see some of the coast's fabulous boutique wineries, tasting delicious wines and exquisite food.

Visitors can choose from a number of places to stay in the Gold Coast Hinterland, with accommodation ranging from basic camp grounds, B&B's, home stays, luxurious lodges and guesthouses. Choose to dine in one of many fantastic restaurants and cafes, while you relax and enjoy the stunning views of beautiful rainforest clad valleys, gorges and escarpments of the extinct volcano.
