World Heritage listed National Parks
There are 5 World Heritage Parks surrounding the Tweed Valley and Gold Coast Hinterland to explore. Take a day trip to the Binna Burra or O'Reillys sections of the Lamington National Park, offering excellent bush walking opportunities and views over the Gold Coast. There's also Springbrook with shorter walks and waterfalls. Try the 2.5 hr Climb to the summit of Mt Warning, located behind Murwillumbah, and you can be the first person in Australia to see the sun rise over Byron Bay headland.
The Tweed Region and Southern Gold Coast offer some of the most beautiful beaches in Australia, if not the World. Maybe we are a little biased? Around Coolangatta there's Rainbow Bay, Snapper Rocks and Duranba beach which are home to some of Australia's top surfing competitions the Roxy and Quicksilver Pros. It's a short drive to the Tweed Coast beaches from Fingal Head, Kingscliff, Cabarita, and Pottsville. These beaches are often less crowded, and offer excellent surfing too.
They are all here and within a 40 minute drive from our Park. Dreamworld Seaworld, Movie World, Wet'n'Wild, Whitewater World and Outback Spectacular.
Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary
An amazing array of animals. Mostly birds but also crocs, dingoes and Tassie devils. Plus there are playgrounds, cafes and a train ride. Only 15 minutes from our Park. It's an awesome day out for kids.
