Ancient rainforest, this world heritage listed site offers spectacular views and epic walking tracks. 1.5 hours drive approximately. Do some research before setting off, some are quite long walks. Not for the feint hearted. (there are some family friendly options)

Epic bushwalks in a stunning settting - usually involving some sort of waterfall. Our favourite walks are: Twin Falls, Purling Brook and Natural Bridge. All within 40-60 minutes drive from the studio and fairly easy walks.

City/town information

Stunning beaches, crystal clear water, and great whale watching in season (May-October). Plenty of local, lively cafes, bars and restaurants. Make sure to take the esplanade walk up to D-Bar (30/40 minutes from Coolangatta Surf Club), see the world-famous Snapper Rocks surf break, and watch the surfers, and the whales in the distance. Watch out for the friendly water dragons (who love posing for photos) and bush turkey's along the path, and keep your eyes peeled for dolphins playing in the surf. 10 minute drive from the studio

Visit the famous Burleigh Heads, a 15 minute drive from the studio. Bustling night life and trendy cafes and shops during the day. The headland walk is stunning and locals love to perch on the 'hill' by the headland at sunset, with a beer, to see in the evenings.
