Tallebudgera Valley

Its formal name is Tallebudgera Valley but in true Aussie minimalist style, you'll probably hear locals around these parts refer to it as the Tally Valley.

However you prefer to wrap your mouth around it, this lush valley at the back of Tallebudgera Beach leads you into emerald-green farmland and natural forests and the relaxed ambience for which the southern Gold Coast is renowned. Because it is so flush with nature, this region has lent itself perfectly to quality health resorts and eco-retreats in which you can completely escape through yoga, pilates, plunge pools, massages and facials.

Nearby bushland provides the perfect place through which to calm your mind while moving your muscles before returning to a feast of fresh and organic food. Other accommodation around the area is sympathetic to the style here with farmstays, holiday rentals and bed and breakfasts.

There's also three top golf courses and a driving range in the region and horseriding is another popular activity. Keep heading west and you'll hit Springbrook National Park. So take your time and dilly dally in the Tally Valley.

Palm Beach

Palm Beach, Gold Coast Area
If the Gold Coast had a middle child it would possibly be Palm Beach, nestled between Tallebudgera Creek on one side and Currumbin Creek on the other. But don't for one minute think this destination is dull. Similar to its Florida namesake - which was named America's best place to live in 2013 - Australia's Palm Beach has thrice been crowned Queensland's cleanest beach. In another US link, borrowing from New York in this instance, Palm Beach's avenues are also numbered, in this case from first to 28th, making navigating this corner of the coast a cinch. But that's possibly where the similarities with the Big Apple exist. For their Palm Beach is one of laid-back living and is one of the best examples of where rambling beach shacks still survive, perched petulantly on million-dollar blocks. Surfers and sunbakers flock to Palm Beach for its wide, sandy and spectacular beach. There's also a variety of eating options here and you can't go past the Palm Beach Surf Club for a feast. Accommodation options consist of everything up to the top end of town, but they reckon you can't go past a beach shack for a bit of coastal character.

Currumbin

Currumbin, Gold Coast Area
Mention Currumbin and many Queenslanders will instantly forage for their photo of a rainbow lorikeet perched on their head at this suburb's famous wildlife sanctuary. It would be almost sacrilegious to start a story on Currumbin without mentioning the Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary for not only was it one of the earliest theme parks on the Gold Coast, but it has been entertaining visitors here for more than 60 years and is considered a pioneer of the tourism industry. These days it's not all about the birds, but a range of wildlife dotted throughout 27 hectares of eucalypt and rainforest where you'll find crocodiles, kangaroos, koalas and marsupials. A new addition is the Adventure Parc High Ropes course which offers 65 challenges including a giant flying fox and a tarzan swing. Don't forget to pay a visit to nearby Superbee Honeyworld. It would be tempting to think Currumbin is all about the sanctuary but there are plenty of other highlights to be had here too. Head off the highway and drive past Currumbin Creek Estuary and "the alley" which is a popular spot with surfers. In fact, Currumbin is also home to Surf World Gold Coast, an attraction which pays homage to the coast's surfing history. Drive along the foreshore and you'll also encounter Elephant Rock - an iconic giant rock which, as the name suggests, looks like an elephant. Some of the coast's best dining views can be experienced here from the Currumbin Surf Club perched right on the ocean or nearby Elephant Rock Café - a bit of an institution around these parts. Lovely steep hills roll down towards the ocean from where you can enjoy a range of watersports including kite-surfing, kayaking, board riding, surf skiing and stand-up paddle boarding. There's even some decent fishing in the Currumbin Creek Estuary. Just don't forget your lorikeet photo.
