Gold Coast Hinterland Escapes and Getaways

Nestled just behind the Gold Coast is an area of beautiful waterfalls, stunning mountain vistas and beautiful hidden retreats and bed and breakfast of a very high quality.  Close by a ballooning experience with Hot Air, why not consider getting away to the peace and tranquillity of Mount Tamborine and stay at Witches Falls Cottages, explore the shopping and restaurants of Gallery Walk, the wine tasting and the cheese factories, nestle up around the fire in winter or get out early for some mountain biking in summer.  Or stay close to Canungra and our breakfast location at O'Reilly’s Canungra Valley Vineyard, just 20 minutes to our meeting point is Wallaby Ridge where you'll find fantastic hospitality, views across the Scenic Rim and a location that’s central to explore from.  Fancy some wildlife with your weekend then try O'Reilly’s Rainforest Resort and Villas in Lamington National Park.
