Coombabah Lake Conservation Park, nestled within the Gold Coast Hinterland, is a sanctuary of natural beauty and tranquility that offers a unique window into Australia’s diverse ecosystems. This expansive park is a haven for wildlife enthusiasts and nature lovers alike, providing a habitat for a rich variety of plant and animal life, including kangaroos, koalas, and an array of bird species.

The park’s landscapes are varied, featuring wetlands, eucalypt forests, and mangrove habitats, each supporting its own unique community of flora and fauna. Walking trails wind through these serene environments, allowing visitors to immerse themselves in the natural beauty and observe wildlife in their natural habitats. The tranquility of the area makes it an ideal spot for birdwatching, photography, or simply enjoying a peaceful walk amidst nature.

One of the park’s highlights is the opportunity to see kangaroos lounging in their natural environment and koalas nestled in the crooks of eucalyptus trees, offering unforgettable encounters with Australia’s iconic wildlife. These sightings are especially delightful in the early mornings or late afternoons when the animals are most active.

It’s a place where visitors can not only enjoy the wonders of nature but also learn about the importance of protecting these environments for future generations.

Mount Tamborine

22 million years ago the Mount Warning volcano erupted creating the green cauldron of the scenic rim. On the northern edge of the volcanic caldera, Tamborine Mountain was formed. Only a short 30 minute drive from the Gold Coast, Mount Tamborine is the perfect destination to start your journey exploring the green behind the gold. Highlights of the mountain include:

Tamborine Village

On the top of Tamborine Mountain you will find the locality of Tamborine. Part of the Scenic Rim, Tamborine village is home to approx 4000 residents who enjoy living the treechange lifestyle. Mt Tamborine is home to a variety of boutique accommodation including cabins, bed and breakfast, and local lodges all offering a hinterland escape and the country hospitality the mountain is famous for. Many of the locals own and operate their own businesses. A Mt Tamborine tour through the area will take you past restaurants and cafes, boutique distilleries, brewery and vineyards, artist studios,  cheese factory and even an organic skincare producer.
