One of the interesting places to visit in Australia is the Gold Coast. It is not certain how it got its name but one possibility is the golden potential it holds as a tourist spot. One thing for sure is the beaches there are favorite spots for local and outstation visitors. It is definitely a place to go for surfers as the waves provide challenging opportunities for surfers. Or one can just lay down and enjoy the sun.
That is not the only interesting places in Gold Coast. If you go for an hour drive west of Surfers Paradise you will reach the Gold Coast's Hinterland mountains. Here lies world heritage listed national parks and reserves where visitors can enjoy wonderful views, local restaurants and picnic spots, shopping, bush walking, bird watching, swim in natural rock pools, take 4WD day tours. If you are up to it, you can explore more than 160 kilometres of graded walking tracks in Lamington National Park, Australia's largest preserved stand of subtropical rainforest.
