Scooters on the Gold Coast

Ill be on the Goldie for a while and my mate and I are going to hire some scooters to get around. What are some good places that you can ride a scooter to? is it possible to ride to Nimbin or any of the mountain/walking tracks?

Hi badsectorz

Do you know what capacity cc scooter you plan to hire? Unless you have a bike licence I am fairly sure you are limited to hiring the 50cc scooters and these are only permitted to travel from Sanctuary Cove to the NSW border and as far west as Nerang - generally they are meant for coastal use.

If you hire a 50cc you could check out the walking track at the National Park on Burleigh headland.

However if you have a bike licence and hire a 200 or 300cc scooter you can go to walking tracks at Springbrook, Tamborine, Natural Arch, etc. Yes, its possible to ride to Nimbin too.

Take care on the mountain roads though, particularly the road to Springbrook if you choose to go there.
