Gold Coast and hinterland region


  • the Gold Coast is extremely popular with young families thanks to the warm weather in Winter and the Theme Parks such as Sea World and Dream World
  • most of the coast has been built up and has very limited tent camping opportunities unless you wish to use the Holiday parks which prioritise caravans and are not generally a great tent camping experience.
  • tent campers may be better suited to heading up to the hinterland such as Lamington Nat Park or heading out to the Moreton Bay Islands
  • most camp sites must be pre-booked
