The green behind the gold
Thanks to the massive rainforest area, the numerous vineyards, and the mountain regions, the Gold Coast Hinterland is a green paradise. Great for people seeking mental repose, away from daily chores and the stress of corporate life. In addition to the nature trails and vineyard tours, there are many offbeat, stress-busting activities to do around here. Head to a local cooking class which uses farm-fresh produce, or go see some amazing work at artisan galleries. Time to unwind like a boss in the Gold Coast!
