Join Caron & Kat on this stunning nature walk through the regionâ€™s best mangroves and coastal bushland â€“ not the hardest Gold Coast hike youâ€™ll ever go on, but certainly very scenic with swim stops along the way in the pristine waterways.
We begin our adventure early to beat the heat & traffic at Tallebudgera Creek Park. From here we will cross the bridge and head for Burleigh Headland and take the paved Oceanview track, which weaves through Burleigh Heads National Park offering views down to the surf below.
We will take the Rainforest Track back, climbing a little to enjoy the views from Jebbribillum Lookout and weave our way further up to Tumgum lookout and reflect on how it mustâ€™ve been for the Kombumerri people who lived here for thousands of years. Large stingrays have been spotted below the lookout in the shallows, fingers crossed they will be on show for us.
From here, we will stay on the path under the traffic bridge and weave our way through the local streets, OMG 70â€™s Gold Coast Architecture is on display in itâ€™s finest glory during this section. We make our way up hill until we find the start of a narrow bitumen track that takes us through bushland on the banks of the creek and onto boardwalks that meander through the Gold Coast's largest tract of mangroves.
The track follows along the boundary of David Fleay Wildlife Park, where you can see some Australian animals including koalas, kangaroos and platypus in tranquil, natural habitats. This adventure is for another day.
We continue on around to the other side of the creek, exploring mangroves and snatching glimpses of magnificent homes along the foreshore. As we make it back to our start location we will be tempted to finally stop for a quick dip in the clear waters of Tallebudgera Creek.
Morning tea will be served in the park overlooking the water as it flows by, while we watch families enjoying this magical Gold Coast location.
