The Gold Coast is such a great place to get fit and enjoy the sunshine. With temperatures only dipping down to 18 degrees in the winter it’s always a good time for a hike. There are plenty of options to choose from when it comes to nature walks in and around the gold coast. Today we have assembled our top 6 places for hiking on the Gold Coast.
Burleigh Head National Park
Burleigh Heads has quite a few tracks you can choose from including the rainforest and ocean view tracks. The views are incredible and you can even see humpback whales in winter and spring! You don’t need to be a pro to take on these trails either!
Purling Brook Falls Springbrook
Purling Brook Falls is beautiful and is only a 2 hour round trip. This is a great way to start your day exploring Springbrook National Park and simultaneously getting epic Instagram photos.
Natural Bridge Springbrook
After you complete your morning session at Purling Brook Falls why not head over to the Natural Bridge? This is one of those places that is beautiful no matter what time of day you go. During daylight hours the views are incredible and the pools of water are inviting, but after dark, if you don’t shine your flashlight, the cave is home to glow worms.
This hike takes a bit more stamina, but the sunrise from the top of the mountain is well worth it. There is a rock scramble at the top, but there is a lower lookout if you can’t make it to the top! Don’t exceed your body on this trail, always hike within your limits!
Another gem in Springbrook National Park is this beautiful waterfall. You can slide down the falls and swim in the pools below splashing about and enjoying your day. There is also an old sawmill you can explore while you are there!
Tamborine National Park is the home of Witches Falls but once upon a time, Witches Falls was the national park. It’s the third oldest reserve in the world and we can see why. Go frolic around the area and take in the sights and sounds.
Stay in Witches Cottages
The walks and hikes in the Gold Coast region are incredible. So much lush wildlife and greenery will leave you spoilt for choice. We recommend always sticking to your fitness level, it is better safe than sorry! We hope you enjoy hiking on the Gold Coast
