The Gold Coast is so commonly known for its sun, sand and surf – and for good reason. But the enchanting hinterland and the waterfalls within are often overlooked. For those who want to explore the Gold Coast beyond its iconic beaches, here’s our list of top 7 Gold Coast waterfalls.
This popular waterfall is found in the gorgeous Mount Tamborine area. It is a short and easy walk to the spot and well worth a visit if you’re in the area.
One of the most incredible sights to see on the Gold Coast is Natural Bridge in the Numinbah Valley. There is a paved circuit that takes you above, below and around the beautiful spot. The best time to go is in the late afternoon so you can stay until the sun has gone down and see the incredible glow worms as they light up the cave.
COOMERA & YARRABILGONG FALLS
This incredible lookout over the Coomera Gorge is found in the Binna Burra section of the Lamington National Park. The walk to this lookout is an 8km return trip and is one of the most spectacular views in Lamington National Park.
Morans Falls is a great place to sit, relax and watch the sun set. This place, while still in the Lamington National Park, is in the Green Mountain section. Getting to Morans Falls is a rather easy 4.6km return walk, and the entrance to the track is just down the main road from the peaceful O’Reilly’s Rainforest Retreat
BOX LOG FALLS
Box Log Falls is one of many waterfalls you will pass along the Box Forest Circuit, which starts from the O’Reilly’s Carpark. The Circuit is a 10.6km hike – but rest assured, it is well worth the effort.
This waterfall is one of the most stunning waterfalls in the Lamington National Park. It is an 8km return trip making up part of the Box Forest Circuit. If you’re feeling up to it, walk a little further down to see the Box Log Falls.
Mirror Falls is one of many incredible waterfalls along the Albert River Circuit. The hike starts at O’Reilly’s and is 20.6km long, but the enchanting sight of the falls make it all worthwhile.
