About this Brisbane Tour
If you've heard the term "hinterlands," you may think of it as another word for the boondocks, a pretty rural area with very few people. Well, when it comes to the Queensland region, Hinterland is a very specific area, meaning the region inland from the Gold Coast on the eastern shore. And it really means some of the most beautiful natural wonders in eastern Australia, from rainforests to secluded eucalyptus forests to the koalas and wallabies that call this place home.
On this all-day tour, you'll get to ride to these areas in style in a comfortable 4WD vehicle as our guides give you the inside story of what you will be seeing. Your day starts in Queensland Surfers Paradise, one of the eclectic and exciting entertainment hubs of the Gold Coast. And you'll travel the original pioneers' track to the volcanic plateau of Tamborine Mountain. On this modern-day exploration, you'll see some of the best rainforests in the world at Lamington National Park. Over 230 species of birds flock to this area, especially during feeding time at O'Reilly's Rainforest Retreat. Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary will give you the chance to mingle with animals like koalas and wallabies. See the animal hospital, too.
But this tour is not just about a having a window to the wilderness. Oh no, you'll be more than a passive spectator. You'll sip on morning tea the way the locals do, feast on a BBQ lunch in our 400-acre natural venue, swim, learn how to throw a boomerang, and enjoy a wine tasting featuring reds, whites, and ports. When your day is done, you'll think of the Hinterland in a new way.
A walk through the woods
One of the highlights of your day will be O'Reilly's Tree Top Walk in Lamington National Forest. You walk on a 600-foot-long wooden bridge that is 50 feet above the ground. This gives you a great view of the rainforest's flora and fauna, including the birds and animals that live in the trees. There are also two observation decks connected, with one of them 110 feet high. Spectacular views abound. But if you're afraid of heights, you might opt to stay grounded.
Please make your own way to Southbank Parklands and look for the tour signs.
