Why Gold Coast Hinterland

Whether you are visiting the Gold Coast in summer or winter, autumn or spring, Southern Cross Tours offers an abundance of activities to help you create unforgettable memories with your family.

The Gold Coast Hinterland, often referred to as the "Green Behind the Gold," is a favorite destination for locals and tourists alike. Nestled inland from the bustling coastal cities, the Hinterland boasts a prime location with the lush rainforests of the Lamington and Springbrook National Parks to the west and the rolling hills of the Scenic Rim to the south. Its picturesque landscapes and tranquil atmosphere have been enchanting visitors for decades.

Holidaymakers are drawn to the Gold Coast Hinterland for many reasons; its beautiful rainforests, with kilometers of walking trails, are just a short drive from the main coastal areas. The inviting forest canopy and diverse wildlife offer perfect opportunities for hiking, bird watching, and exploring nature, with guided tours available to enhance the experience.

The heart of the Hinterland is Mount Tamborine, a charming area lined with boutique wineries, local craft shops, and delightful cafés. The region is bustling with activities day and night, featuring farmers' markets, artisan fairs, and various events. It’s an ideal spot to enjoy a leisurely meal, explore the local crafts, or simply relax with a glass of local wine while taking in the serene surroundings.

The Gold Coast Hinterland’s rich history and natural beauty make it a must-visit destination, offering something for everyone, whether you’re seeking adventure, relaxation, or a bit of both.
