Gold Coast Tours & Holidays

Queensland’s Gold Coast is best known for its beaches, but there is plenty more natural beauty to discover here.

The Gold Coast has some stunning national parks, from the dramatic coastline hugging Burleigh National Park to the cool rainforest walks of Tamborine Mountain and thousands of glowworms at Springbrook. It’s also the ideal spot to immerse yourself in nature as you walk the Scenic Rim. Or to take the time to discover how the frenetic energy of Surfers Paradise is a far cry from the old-school vibes at Rainbow Bay. Or to stroll along the most famous stretch of sand in all of Queensland. So, sit back, relax and let us show you the different sides of this popular tourist destination.

Sydney to Brisbane Adventure

Kim Ngan · Traveled April 2024
Lots of different activities and places covered in this trip which is a great opportunity for me to immerse myself in nature and enrich my cultural knowledge. I have made lovely friends and had a great time to relax and unwind! My highlights would be the 2-hour kayaking at beautiful Byron Bay and seeing adorable koalas and kangaroos in the wildlife. Understanding that this trip is run for the first time, so "hiccups" (issues) are unavoidable. However, I am very pleased with our tour guide, Jonny Weston who was doing 2 people's jobs (tour guide & driver). Throughout the whole trip, Jonny was always happy to assist whenever needed. For example, although during a challenging time, Jonny remained calm, polite and showed his caring towards all tour members which made me impressed! Thank you and keep up the good work, Jonny :)

Walk Queensland's Scenic Rim

Linda · Traveled October 2023
The scenic rim trip was fantastic. The hikes were really good and generally not too challenging (except for my dodgy knee!). The Aboriginal Smoking Ceremony was great. We visited a couple of local wineries and had dinner at 3 different country pubs which was fun. Mt Barney Lodge was a beautiful old building full of history. The guide Jonny was well organised and very knowledgeable, and the group were all good company and supportive. I'd definitely recommend this trip.

Walk Queensland's Scenic Rim

Emma · Traveled August 2023
This trip was incredible! The walks were so enjoyable and full of wildlife- we saw Cat birds, wallabies, Lyre Birds, and even a friendly Python! Beautiful trails that are easy to walk while taking it all in! This trip is the perfect opportunity to experience the Scenic Rim on a variety of trails and activities that teach you tons about the area and First Nations. Truly an iconic, beautiful experience that I would recommend to anyone!

Walk Queensland's Scenic Rim

Bernadette · Traveled July 2023
The Scenic Rim was a great trip. Our leader Joel has an amazing knowledge and passion for the area and loved sharing it with us. The walks are easily achieved by anyone with reasonable fitness . They are all on formed tracks apart from one very short Rick hop which is optional. I thoroughly enjoyed exploring a new area and it has whet my appetite to go back and continue exploring.
