Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary

Voted one of the Gold Coast's most popular tourist destinations, Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary is the crown jewel of the National Trust of Australia (Queensland) [NTAQ] properties. As one of Queensland's earliest nature-based tourist destinations, the Sanctuary is a physical embodiment of everything the NTAQ represents: dedication to conserving our nation's Indigenous, natural and historic heritage and culture. With Blinky Bill now present for daily shows, the amazing viewing experiences available at the Wildlife Hospital and hundreds of native Australian animals on display in natural bushland and rainforest settings, Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary is the ultimate holiday adventure for the entire family.

The Safari Segway is so fun, the staff is friendly but sadly can’t see much animal as the weather is warm most of them is hiding up.

Fingal Head Lighthouse

Reviewed By Jenny V - Kingscliff, Australia

We went with our family to take a look around Fingal Head this weekend as we had not really done much looking around this area even though we are local. We moved up from Melb 12 months ago but have not really had much of a chance to see as much of the area as we would like. We had family visit this weekend though and they wanted to take a look at the lighthouse so off we all went.
We were so surprised at what we found. It's truly beautiful up there.
The walk was easy, but I would have preferred to have been in sturdier shoes or thongs rather than sandals as the sand got in amongst everything so I would recommend any woman wanting to do the same walk to wear runners or something similar.
The view that we had when we got to the end of the walk so so good we couldn't believe it.
The lighthouse must be the smallest lighthouse we have ever seen but it was so cute and belongs in that setting. They also have little snippets of information about the origin of the lighthouse and its inhabitants on information boards which made it even better so we could understand why it was erected originally.
From there we walked on to the heads which overlooked dreamtime beach and the most beautiful but rough coastal landscape.
We would recommend anyone to do the trek. We will definitely be taking visitors there when they visit from now on.

Look for the red tent at the Kingscliff Bridge on Cudgen Creek.

This tour was amazing!!! Our team Chris and Jenna were awesome! They were very informative and helped us to feel safe and secure straight away! Our time in the water was unreal! We saw leopard sharks, wobbegongs, coloured star fish, pufferfish and many many turtles!! On the day we went out the visiability was high and the current wasn't very strong. Our Guide Jenna had a good knowledge of the area and had a great eye for spotting many spieces of wildlife along the way. On the boat ride back we saw nurseries of dolphins playing around near our boat with their babies! Which was really beautiful! We would highly recommend this tour!

Snapper Rocks

Reviewed By Miike2000

What more could you want, great for the kids, country town feel, nice Seating and viewing areas to see right the way up to Surfers Paradise, I have been coming here for 35 years and what stands out to me it’s its still as prestige as the first time I went there. The locals are so proud of their clean beach that they advertise it. Well done snappper rocks.

Chris Cunningham Park

Reviewed By MumTheOrganiser - Gold Coast

Fabulous place to visit for a picnic or swim. The boardwalk which was added a couple of years ago provides a nice harbourfront edge. You can hire canoes and paddle bikes there too. Great place during the day, can sometimes be busy in summer.

Kirra Beach

Reviewed By nipitinthebud - Auckland, New Zealand

I first came her in 1986 for the breaks, Kirra, Little Kirra, Greenmount and D Bar. The breaks were consistent and always working for the majoirty of the six months I stayed. Ironically my next visit was Oct/Nov 2017 and the surf was crap however this is just ad timing due to conditions. The beach is still clean and well looked after. Tweed Heads itself has changed significantly in the last 31 years as you would expect. Back in 86 it was this quaint seaside town the alternative to buzzy commerical surfers. It still has that positive vibe but alot more busy.Kirra is quieter than its close neighbour Coolangatta and Greemount Beaches. Good size to walk or run along going North. Early in the morning is magical.

Point Stephens Lighthouse

Reviewed By Mark B - Nelson Bay, Australia

Crossed the spit at low tide about 5 weeks ago without getting my feet wet. Great walk out to the lighthouse with the ruins of the lighthouse keepers cottage a highlight. WARNING - storms and big seas have now made the crossing of the spit extremely dangerous, even a low tide. It may take several months before it can be safely crossed again.
