Its formal name is Tallebudgera Valley but in true Aussie minimalist style, you’ll probably hear locals around these parts refer to it as the Tally Valley. However you prefer to wrap your mouth around it, this lush valley at the back of Tallebudgera Beach leads you into emerald-green farmland and natural forests and the relaxed ambience for which the southern Gold Coast is renowned.
Because it is so flush with nature, this region has lent itself perfectly to quality health resorts and eco-retreats in which you can completely escape through yoga, pilates, plunge pools, massages and facials. Nearby bushland provides the perfect place through which to calm your mind while moving your muscles before returning to a feast of fresh and organic food. Other accommodation around the area is sympathetic to the style here with farmstays, holiday rentals and bed and breakfasts. There’s also three top golf courses and a driving range in the region and horseriding is another popular activity. Keep heading west and you’ll hit Springbrook National Park. So take your time and dilly dally in the Tally Valley.
