Ask me what my favourite way to explore a destination is and I always say it’s walking. Especially in Goldie, as there are so many beautiful walks on the Gold Coast that allow you to see the best landscapes of the region.

Whether it’s finding a hidden beach or backstreet cafe or hiking to the top of a hill, you can experience more or the city and the joy of the landscape just by wandering around.

The Best Gold Coast Walks

So once you’re done with the theme parks and laying on the beach, get active and get beyond the concrete skyline and choose one of the many fantastic bush walks on the Gold Coast.

Burleigh Heads National Park

At Burleigh Head, where ancient volcanic columns meet the sea, this park features rainforest, eucalypt forest, pandanus groves, tussock grassland, coastal heath, and mangroves.

Its northern side is one of Australia’s most famous surfing point breaks. Walk the Ocean view walk around the rocky headland from Tallebudgera Creek and look at the tumbled masses of six-sided basalt columns.

Coolangatta to Point Danger, Southern Gold Coast Walk

This is a great little Gold Coast walk we did over and over again whilst staying in Coolangatta for 5 days.

This walk may not take you long, it’s about 2 km in total, but that really depends on how often you stop as the scenery along the way will have you reaching for your camera at every outlook.

Lamington National Park Hike, Gold Coast Hinterland

Lamington National Park is in the Gold Coast hinterland great walk, and the place to stay up there is O’Reilly’s Rainforest Retreat.
