Comments

Been through here more times than I can count. Never disappoints. At its best, a clear day with the beautiful Gatorade blue of the ocean and Talle creek. Today was a little overcast, but I enjoyed the moody dampness of the boulders (the petrichor was so good !!) and rainforest section.

Winter views are one of a kind. Tallebudgera Creek just clear as.

Easy Walk, Forged from the rainforest track

Easy walk. Parked at Goodwin Terrace, grabbed a coffee from the Nook and headed for a walk along the ocean view track. Got to Echo Beach, sat on the sand for a bit then headed back along the rainforest circuit. Great little loop. Although very busy and narrow. So generally single file. Get there early (before 9am) for an easy park on Goodwin, otherwise you'll be doing loops for a while. Alternatively, park on Julia Street and start the walk from the other side. Usually easier to get parking here if you're a late starter.

Been living on the Gold Coast for three years now, and this walk is the highlight of my local area <3 Extremely close to public transport for those who do not drive.

Nice easy walk with stunning views to the east and south from the top. Saw a big ray. Easy to get to but hard to park a car on the weekends. Highly recommend for out of town visitors.

Wow what a great walk right on the Gold Coast. Two great lookouts and we loves the boulder strewn rainforest. We started at the Burleigh end and returned via the rainforest circuit. While ora an easy walk it's not flat. There are some steep sections. Also the first part of the walk on the Burleigh end is currently cut off but there are signs showing the alternate route along the road.
