About the Gold Coast Hinterland Great Walk
Discover beauty, mystery and history along the 54km Gold Coast Hinterland Great Walk linking the species-rich Gondwana Rainforests of Australia World Heritage Area of Lamington and Springbrook plateaus via the scenic Numinbah Valley. This World Heritage Area protects the most extensive areas of subtropical rainforest in the world, large areas of warm temperate rainforest and nearly all of Australia's remaining Antarctic beech cool temperate rainforest.
Walk through the ancient volcanic landscape of the Tweed Volcano, which is still being eroded by rushing streams and plummeting waterfalls, and through lush rainforest with relicts of Gondwana flora and fauna.
The walk offers once-in-a-lifetime experiences—where else in Queensland can you walk along the rim of an ancient volcano? Find out more about the Gold Coast Hinterland Great Walk, and the surrounds in our frequently asked questions information.
