The Gold Coast Hinterland is home to three national parks, numerous mountains, creeks, waterfalls, valleys, and natural rock formations. The area is mostly covered in sub-tropical rainforest, but sections have been cleared for dairy farm land and wineries. The Hinterland is best seen by car or on a bus tour as the roads wind through the mountains with various lookout points along the way and towering trees lining the roads – it is truly a beautiful drive.
