Why visit the Gold Coast?
The Gold Coast, about an hour south of Brisbane, capital city of Queensland, is sometimes overlooked as is is most well known for its beaches, nightlife and theme parks. True, they’re great places to visit, but if they’re not your preference and you want to get out and about, how about visiting some of the beaches to the south, or going inland?
There are some great National Parks with lovely walks and places to stay. Up in the hills of the Scenic Rim you can get beautiful wines and local grown coffee, not to mention the beautiful views. Check out our story on 3 day trips out of Brisbane which include two close by to the Gold Coast – two lovely wildlife reserves and a trip to the Scenic Rim.
