Explore the Amazing National Parks of the Gold Coast
Have a change of pace during your holiday on the Gold Coast by checking out the tropical heritage of Queensland at the many picturesque national parks. For adventurers and bushwalkers these national parks are an absolute must, and provide a unique day out after spending a few days at the beach and enjoying the attractions.
Burleigh Head National Park is the most accessible of all the national parks to be found on the Gold Coast and this is due to its location right next to the popular Burleigh Beach. A trend amongst locals and tourists is to head to the shaded trees of the park after a day of swimming, where you can relax with a picnic or fresh barbecue.
Springbrook National Park and Lamington National Park are almost next to each other and can be arrived at within an hour’s drive from the coastline. For adventurers and bushwalkers this is completely worth it, where you’ll be able to explore lots of wildlife and lush rainforest with many scenic spots and lookouts to take great photos. At Springbrook National Park enjoy nearly 7,000 acres of rainforest to explore as well as the famous Purling Brook Falls in its centre, one of the tallest and most spectacular waterfalls in the region. Lamington National Park is even bigger and is known as “Queensland’s National Park”. This huge park is ideal for adventurers with lots to discover including the tall Tree Top Walk, a 180 metre walkway with two observation decks providing the best view of the rainforest from 110 feet high!
If you’re staying on the northern half of the Gold Coast, Tamborine National Park isn’t far from Surfers Paradise - a bushwalker’s dream with many trails, lookouts, and waterfalls to be seen within!
