Best Walks of the Northern Gold Coast

Running north from Burleigh Head – the midway point of the Goldy – along with the gorgeous sea vista of the Oceanway, there are some wonderful walks in the beautiful parks, gardens and wilderness areas of the northern Gold Coast that you simply must experience.  If you want to stroll by sunset seas, creep along fauna-filled creeks, sneak alongside grazing kangaroos, then check out these eight spectacular areas that the coast’s unique flora and fauna call home.
