Put on your walking shoes and get set to experience a paradise of spectacular waterfalls, interesting rock formations, flora and fauna set amongst lush, lung cleansing, ancient rainforest. Springbrook National Park is a 50 minute drive from the Gold Coast and it is part of the World Heritage listed Gondwana sub-tropical rainforest.

This is your day to be as active (put your hand up for the longest walk being 6 kms and pack as much into the day as you can) or as relaxed (stroll the 100m – 600m walks, and spend the day refreshing your senses in nature, slipping into a state of nirvana while relaxing by a stream)

There are a couple of cafes on the plateau for you to enjoy lunch or why not bring your own picnic to have by a stream or waterfall. You may even like to have a swim in one of the water holes.  Additional spending money will be needed for your food and beverage during the day.

Customised Tour

Full Day 7 Hours $430per Couple. Additional Person $50
Pick up 9am, Drop off 4pm Max

  

If you can’t see a tour that suits or you only have a certain window of time I can tailor a tour especially for you.  Maybe it’s as simple as wining and dining the day away with good  friends.  On the Southern Gold Coast and Northern Rivers we have an amazing choice for doing just this! 

 From surf clubs for you to soak up wonderful views, sun and a few local ales as well as the beautiful historic pubs scattered around our countryside,  all make for a great lunch stop not forgetting the many award winning fine dining restaurants. 

The thing is, with a designated driver you can relax for the day knowing nobody has to worry about driving.

Additional spending money will be needed for your food and beverage during the day. An additional 4th person may be accommodated on booking.

Southern Gold Coast and Tweed Coast Vantage points.

Full Day Max 7 Hours $430per Couple. Additional Person $50
Pick up 9am, Drop off 4pm

I will take you to all the beautiful vantage points along the coast where the locals like to spend much of their leisure time. You will also get to see some of the small relaxed villages of Northern NSW.

This tour can be modified depending how active you wish to be, allowing opportunities to take short walks on many of the vantage point stops. All walks are less than 4 kms long. The bonus is during the months of June through to October when hundreds of whales pass this coastline and there is a high chance of sighting whales from all these vantage points.
