The Gold Coast Hinterland Great Walk covers the most extensive areas of subtropical rainforest in the world, including Lamington and Springbrook plateaus and the scenic Numinbah Valley. This World Heritage area protects nearly all of Australia's remaining Antarctic beech cool temperate rainforest.
Challenge yourself over three days and 54 kilometres from west to east starting at the Green Mountains section and ending at The Settlement. Purchase a topographic map and pack your camping gear in preparation to overnight at three walkers' camp sites at Green Mountains, Woonoongoora and The Settlement camping area (all requiring permits).
Pass through ancient volcanic landscape of the Tweed Volcano, rushing streams, plummeting waterfalls, lush rainforest with relicts of Gondwana flora and fauna at Woonoongoora - the place known to the Yugambeh people as 'Queen of the Mountains'.
