Sun and surf

With 57 kilometres of sandy beaches to choose from, your perfect beach day awaits.

  • Pop a cork at boutique vineyards, sample local produce and be taken in with local arts and crafts in Mount Tamborine.
  • Trade your sandals for shoes and hike one of the walks at Lamington or Springbrook National Parks.
  • Recharge at one of the region’s best health retreats.
