Gold Coast: Hiking - Walking
Gold Coast is a land rich with mountains, pristine beaches, cascading waterfalls and other natural wonders - meaning it is perfect for anyone looking to get away on a hiking holiday. Very few places in the world can match Gold Coast in its outstanding landscape, natural setting and regional splendour.
Hiking on the Gold Coast is one of the common adventure sports. There are many hiking trails here especially through the deep and dark rainforest to the west of the city. Other trails run through national parks and wildlife reserves in Lamingtonm, Mt Tamborine, Canungra and Springbrook.
Generally experts accompany visitors in their hiking expeditions. Surfers Paradise is also one of the main hiking region in Gold Coast while another good idea is to explore the Burleigh Hills - a walk bordered by the lush rainforest remnant of Burleigh National Park on one side and stunning views north to Surfers Paradise and south over Tallebudgera Creek. It is advisable to keep an account of the adaptability level while going for hiking. It is also advised to use a pole, as it balances 8% of our body. Also remember to avoid carrying equipment weighing more than 20% of the hiker's weight. So whether you are an amateur perambulator or an expert hiker, there is plenty to keep you occupied on a hiking holiday on the Gold Coast.
