You don’t need to go chasing waterfalls in the Gold Coast Hinterland because they are very easy to access, with most being only a short bushwalk through the rainforest.
For those of you who like to get out into the great outdoors and keep active during your visit to the Gold Coast there are plenty of walking tracks.
Only an hour drive south from us is the lovely little coastal and riverside village of Brunswick Head on the far north coast of NSW. It is a place we have visited on many occasions over the years and always enjoyed its laid-back vibe and peaceful ambience.
The Gold Coast is spoilt for choice when it comes to beaches with 21 stunning golden sand beaches from Rainbow Bay in the south to Southport Spit in the north.
If you enjoy a coastal ride on a nice smooth pathway then I highly recommend a cycle from the very picturesque Salt Village along Casuarina to another gorgeous little beachside village – Cabarita Beach.
North Straddie is blessed with white sandy beaches, magnificent inland lakes, hidden waterways and scenic walks.
Cooly now features world-class oceanfront hotels, restaurants and clubs and is still as popular as ever as a holiday destination. However in some ways it still exudes the charm of the beachside holiday from yesteryear.
There really is nothing nicer than winter sunshine on the Gold Coast and believe me we get more than our fair share of these types of days. It is an ideal opportunity to enjoy physical exercise without the excessive heat and humidity that we experience during the long summer months.
Here on the Gold Coast we are not only blessed with a wide selection of stunning beaches – twenty at least, but we also have two wonderful estuary creeks that provide a safe haven for all types of water activities.
It is true that sometimes what is right in our backyard we are completely oblivious to. For example I never knew that this fabulous local natural attraction called Killarney Glen even existed until a few months ago.
