Private barns near Coolangatta guide


At the southernmost tip of the Gold Coast, surfers flock to Coolangatta, or “Cooly,” for its renowned surf breaks, and sand lovers have five beaches to choose from. Watch the pros riding world-class waves at Duranbah, head to Kirra beach to swim and sunbathe, or enjoy water sports along Coolangatta beach. After taking a dip at the Snapper Rock Pools, hike the coastal trail from Greenmount Hill to Rainbow Beach, and look out for migrating whales and dolphins along the shore. Finally, check into one of the beachfront campsites and take your pick of seafront bars and restaurants.

Where to go

Gold Coast

North of Coolangatta, the Gold Coast is Queensland’s quintessential beach destination. Head to the beaches of Miami or Broadbeach to swim and surf, browse the famous Village Markets in Burleigh, or party until the early hours in Surfers Paradise. Campers have plenty of options along the coast, and adrenaline junkies can head to some of Australia’s most famous theme parks.

Gold Coast Hinterlands

Northwest of Coolangatta, the Gold Coast Hinterlands provide plenty of scope for outdoor adventures. Take a road trip through the Currumbin Valley, stopping to visit the eco-village and cool off with a swim in the Currumbin Rock Pools. Further north, hike along rainforest trails in Springbrook National Park, spot glow worms at the Natural Bridge, and enjoy bush camping in the Numinbah Valley.

NSW North Coast 

New South Wales’ most scenic road trip follows the Legendary Pacific Coast route. Set out from Coolangatta and drive south to Tweed Heads and Byron Bay, where you can browse the art and crafts markets, take a surf lesson, or hike along the headlands. Inland, campers can escape the crowds in the Mount Jerusalem and Nightcap national parks.

When to go

The sun rarely stops shining along the Gold Coast, and beach days are possible even in winter (June through August). Summer (December through January) is peak season, when advance bookings are essential, but spring is an equally lively time to visit, with a number of markets, festivals, and outdoor events. Whale watching season along the coast runs from June through October.

Know before you go

  • The Gold Coast has an excellent public transport service, but having your own transport is useful for exploring the hinterlands and national parks.
  • Coolangatta has a selection of shops where you can pick up camping gear and stock up on supplies before heading out into the hinterlands.
  • Fire bans are common in Queensland during summer and dry periods, so be sure to check local recommendations before lighting your campfire and always use designated fire pits. 
  • Camping permits are required to camp in Queensland’s national parks and must be reserved in advance.
