The Gold Coast is better known for its hedonistic holiday vibe. Sunny beaches packed with holidaymakers. It is also the location of several major tourist attractions such as Dreamworld, Sea World, and Wet’n’Wild. However, the Gold Coast still has much to offer nature lovers.
There are plenty of state-run wilderness reserves very close to the Gold Coast. Even the local wilderness areas, although somewhat more trodden than most, are home to a great variety of wildlife. This might be a modern vacation region, but like all of Australia, you don’t have to go very far to uncover some truly stunning natural regions.
