We are spoilt for choice when it comes to stunning scenery in our region. We have tried, however, to pick just 5 of the best places for a picnic on the Gold Coast. Here are our recommendations:

Purling Brook Falls, Springbrook

Rainforest, waterfalls and rock pools will delight you on your walk to this much-loved picnic spot teeming with bird life. Take care after heavy rain and don’t wear your best shoes! The track is not too steep but can be slippery when wet.

Hinze Dam, Advancetown

For somewhere a little different, take your picnic basket to Hinze Dam. The scenery is stunning and there is an interactive centre which explains more about the dam. There are also BBQ stations and play areas dotted around.

Broadwater Parklands, Marine Parade, Southport

A big expanse of lush parkland, with lots of different activities and events scheduled. Pick a spot to picnic while the kids try out the bouncy pillow or paddle in the Rockpools. See for a list of upcoming events.

Currumbin Rock Pools, Currumbin Creek Road, Currumbin Valley

A short drive from Currumbin Beach, you will find this beautiful picnic spot complete with secret swimming holes. It’s great for kids of all ages as the depth of the water varies. Grab your swimmers and settle in for the day.

Coombabah Lakes Boardwalk, Coombabah

Have a quiet picnic in your own piece of lakeland paradise, listening to the birdsong and watching the boats bobbing around. After your lunch, take a stroll along the boardwalk surrounding the lake.
