Daytrip to Brisbane from the Gold Coast

If anything is more interesting than the theme parks surrounding your Gold Coast hotel, it’s the fact that this strip is also a good base if you plan to make a daytrip to Brisbane. There are a number of tour companies willing to accommodate your transfer needs, and if you’ve rented a car for the trip, it’s good to know that Brisbane is only right next to the Gold Coast. The drive is bound to be easy and scenic.

While Brisbane’s a pretty big city, there are a lot of opportunities for you to connect with nature, here. You can spend an entire day bushwalking if you haven’t had enough of that at the Gold Coast’s hinterlands. Check out the suburbs of the city because these wide, green, open spaces are great for birdwatching, hiking, bicycling, and picnics. The diversity of wildlife here rivals the hinterlands too despite its proximity to the city.

If any of the tour companies you’ve contacted offer a trip to Mt. Barney’s Scenic Rim, grab your camera, lace up your boots and sign up for it. You can also reach the area by car through the Beaudesert and the Rathdowney which leads to the Mt. Barney region. Look for the Mt. Barney National Park and go for easy walks through the area. You can also climb the top of the mountain for the best view of the region, but this is going to be pretty challenging.

For tea, you should drop by the Rathlogan Grove and look for the Shed Café. They serve excellent home cooked snacks with delicious cappuccino. You don’t have to worry about ordering this after lunch because you’re not in Italy and you won’t annoy the locals.

To cool off from the heat of the Gold Coast in the summer, you can also head to the most western portion of Brisbane. The Toowoomba is only 130 kilometers from the city center yet the climate’s considerably cooler in this part of Australia. Admire the architecture which embodies much of Australia’s heritage and order the best food and wine in town. The most popular stop here is the Picnic Point which puts you at the very edge of the Great Dividing Range.

You don’t have to rough it out in the open either. There are plenty of restaurants and facilities in the area for you to enjoy the view from indoors. If you’re outdoorsy enough, you can even take the pathway to the range and up the Table Top Mountain.
