The remarkable green hinterland of the Gold Coast, with its endless walking trails, gorgeous picnic areas, and world heritage-listed rainforest, is ideal if you want to spend the afternoon away from the coast.

Lamington National Park gives you the perfect spot. This area draws hordes of birdwatchers, and you can go hiking along one of the lovely walking trails. More than 160 kilometres of walking paths, including the 21.4-kilometre Border track, established in the late 1930s, and the Caves circuit, which offers views of Coomera Valley, are found in this area well known for its stunning waterfalls.

Lamington National Park is part of the most extensive subtropical rainforest in the world, the Gondwana Rainforests of Australia World Heritage Area. After its 1915 declaration, Lamington was under protection, keeping out farming and logging out of the park, which transformed most of the McPherson Range. Those who appreciate nature will be mesmerised by the Antarctic Beech, wildflowers, and unusual fauna that thrive there.
