David Fleay Wildlife Park

Burleigh Heads isn’t just for beach-goers—it’s also the perfect place for animal lovers to see some unique native wildlife in a beautiful natural setting. David Fleay Wildlife Park is a small but impressive wildlife park dedicated to protecting and highlighting Queensland native flora and fauna. Experience daily wildlife shows, talks and encounters with real park rangers, stroll through picturesque rainforests and bushland, and keep your eyes peeled for a rare sighting of a bridled nailtail wallaby, which had been thought to be extinct for over 30 years but lives wild and free within this park!

Araluen Swimming Hole 

Beat the heat with a cool dip in this emerald green watering hole. Nestled in the Gold Coast Hinterland near Tallebudgera, it’s a well-kept secret by locals. Secluded and rustic, you’ll find a rope swing at this fresh waterhole, along with plenty of grass for a casual picnic. 

Sea Fox

Wave Break Island 

Jump in your Sea Fox Commander 268 boat (included in the prize lottery) and spend the day at Wave Break Island. Accessible only via boat, jet ski or kayak, the island is located between Biggera Waters and South Stradbroke Island and offers a beautiful outing for sunbathing, snorkelling, and dolphin and stingray spotting. The views back towards Gold Coast’s city skyline are pretty spectacular, too.


Sarabah Estate Vineyard

If you feel like swapping your beachside smoothie for something a little stronger, head to the hills behind the Gold Coast and sip on locally grown wine at Sarabah Estate Vineyard. Taste your way through the CellarDoor, enjoy woodfired pizzas at the Chalet Bistro, or take your food to go and indulge in a picnic in the vines. Or simply stop by for a coffee and some furry cuddles with the vineyard’s resident farm animals and house alpacas.

Gold Coast Regional Botanic Gardens

These botanic gardens tend to fly under the radar given all the abundant natural beauty everywhere you look on the Gold Coast. Serene and picturesque, however, the 31 hectares of parkland and lakes definitely deserves many visits. Take in the wide variety of plants and flowers across the diverse gardens, including one dedicated to Aboriginal bush food. There's plenty of wildlife to see, too, and walking trails and boardwalks to wander.
