Caravanning near Gold Coast of Australia

Are you thinking of caravanning near Gold Coast of Australia? If you are, you certainly aren’t alone. Thousands of people every year – from young families on their first caravan adventure to seasoned ‘Grey Nomads’ – appreciate that the Gold Coast on Queensland’s southern coastline, has more than enough to satisfy everyone’s adventurous spirit.

Whether you dream of going ‘off track’ into the hinterland areas to re-connect with the natural environment, or plan on treating the kids to the famous theme parks – your caravan adventure on the Gold Coast of Australia will tick all the boxes.

So let’s take a sneak preview of just a few of the Gold Coast’s wonderful attractions.

Caravan Gold Coast Hinterland

The Gold Coast hinterland is famous for some of the most picturesque landscapes on the entire eastern seaboard of Australia. Here are some of the highlights …

  • Mt Tamborine: Join a 4WD night-time tour through Mt. Tamborine National Park and be delighted with the glow worms and native fauna and flora as you gain a unique nocturnal perspective of our bushland.
  • Natural Bridge: Located near Springbrook, this natural wonder is well worth a visit. It does get busy on the weekends, so if you can manage a visit during the week, you may have the entire place to yourself.
  • Springbrook National Park boasts some of the best vistas available back over the Gold Coast and out to the blue Pacific. Lovely walks with plenty of waterfalls, rainforest and abundant birdlife.
  • Lamington National Park is a ‘must see’ for anyone appreciating the wonders to be found in our natural environment. World Heritage-listed, Lamington National Park offers a range of walks graded to suited any level of fitness and ability. Included among the most popular walks is a tree-top canopy walk. See if you can catch a glimpse of the beautiful black and yellow regent bowerbird. Truly spectacular!
  • Byron Bay. Just a 45 minute drive down the highway is the beautiful Byron Bay. Boasting mainland Australia’s most eastern point – Cape Byron – this area is world renowned for its beaches and the ‘laid back’ attitude of its ‘natives’!
