Ideas for day trips from Broadbeach?


I'll be staying in BroadBeach for 6 days early December and am looking at spending 4 of those days on day tours.

Do you have any suggestions please for interesting tours I could go on?

The Mount Tamborine tour looks really good.

I'm not into theme parks etc but I love the countryside and the coast so anything along those lines would be magic.

Take a whalewatching cruise.

Rent a car and drive to Byron Bay.

A day visiting Brisbane.

Cruise to South Stradbroke Island.

Springbrook and its waterfalls and rainforest are a short drive westward.

I live in Broadbeach and can vouch for it _ there's lots to see and do around here.

Another vote for renting a car whilst visiting the Gold Coast. There are some lovely scenic driving day trips you can do with very interesting attractions.

Visit -



Byron Bay - is also a must do on your list for places to visit from Broadbeach.

I agree with the first poster. Definitely rent a car. There are plenty of beautiful scenic drives. Drive and check out natural arch and up to O'Reillys to see the birds and do the tree top walk(word of warning the drive up here is very windy), head out to the currumbin rock pools to cool off. Head south through Kingscliff to Bryon bay and back up through Nimbin.

Check out southern end of the coast. Burleigh heads has a beautiful headland with a walking track through rainforest with fantastic views of the ocean and up and down the coast.Some great little cafes in the area as well. Try paddle boarding at Tallebudgera or Currumbin creek.
