AROUND Mt NIMMEL LODGE

There are many stunning attractions close to our campsite in the Springbrook National Park, renowned for its gorgeous views, enticing waterfalls and interesting wildlife. Located in the McPherson mountain range Mt Nimmel offers a secluded retreat away from the hustle and bustle and into peaceful forests.

Only 20 minutes from the Gold Coast you are not far from the beaches and nightlife of the city. Famous for long stretches of pristine sand ideal for topping up your tan and waves perfect for surfing the Gold Coast is an attractive day trip back to civilisation.

Brisbane is only an hour away from Mt Nimmel, offering great city and river scenery from Story bridge (which you can climb) and along Brisbane river, a Lone Pine koala sanctuary and the city's botanical garden.

WALKING TRACKS

Our campground has many walking tracks connected to it, you can stroll through the forest to your hearts content soaking up all the beautiful landscapes and diverse wildlife Mt Nimmel Lodge and the Springbrook national park have to offer.

SURFING

Our favourite is Surfers Paradise beach - here you can learn to surf, dive and go on some amazing water sporting tours. 

But if relaxation is more your thing the beach has amazing sand to lay a towel down and chill out. 

THEME PARKS
TAMBORINE MOUNTAIN GLOW WORM CAVES 

This man-made cave in the rainforest is designed to be a sanctuary for the critically endangered glow worm, only found in Australia and New Zealand. The conservation efforts by the staff are admirable and the worms produce a remarkable sight in the pitch black cave. 

Although normally only bioluminescently glowing at night, do not worry ,the Tamborine cave has an artificially reversed night cycle meaning you can see this amazing spectacle over lunch and do not have to worry about a midnight trek through the rainforest. 

 

The Golf Coast is famous for the theme parks nearby and we are right next to them all! Less than an hours drive away we are near Seaworld; where you can learn about both native and exotic marine animals but also enjoy rides, exhibits and shows. Find out more at: https://seaworld.com.au/

Thrill seekers however will want to discover the WarnerBros. Movie World and Wet'n'wild. The former has a wide range of attractions; from adrenaline pumping rollercoasters and unforgettable experiences to parades and carousels for the kids. Find out more at: https://movieworld.com.au/attractions

If it's a nice day however Wet'n'wild (Australia's number 1 water park) is a necessity for anyone visiting the Gold Coast. Boasting some extreme water rides and leisurely pools it is a great day out for all the family. Find out more at:https://wetnwild.com.au/
