About Pine Ridge
While dune vegetation on the Gold Coast has all but disappeared due to urban development, a remaining patch of wallum heath vegetation is protected in this small park.
Wildflowers such as banksia, boronia and the wallum wedge pea are plentiful in late winter and spring, especially after good autumn rains.

Pine Ridge Conservation Park is particularly vulnerable to damage from external influences.
You can help protect the park by observing these guidelines:
- Leaving all plants and animals undisturbed.
- Leaving pets at home—even their scent frightens native animals.
- Lighting of fires within the park is prohibited.
- Feeding native animals may cause poor health and sometimes death; please do not chase, scare or feed the wildlife.
- Taking your rubbish out of the park. This also includes disposing of garden clippings responsibly.
- Riding trail bikes within the park is prohibited.
- Keeping your bicycle on the bitumen border tracks.
See the guidelines on caring for parks for more information about protecting our environment and heritage in parks.
Pine Ridge is very significant to the Aboriginal Traditional Owners of this land. Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service (QPWS) manages this park in consultation with them, and under the Nature Conservation Act 1992, to preserve and present its natural and cultural values in perpetuity while still providing nature-based recreational opportunities.
For tourism information for all regions in Queensland see Queensland Holidays.
