Top sustainable spots to reset & recharge

on the Gold Coast

If one of your New Year’s resolutions is to make more sustainable choices in your day-to-day life, you’re certainly not alone. These days, more and more people are demanding that businesses take thoughtful steps towards becoming more environmentally responsible. Lucky for us, the Gold Coast has a bounty of green-conscious spots that will fuel your body and lighten your footprint, allowing us to eat, drink and play without guilt. 

Hop in the new Lexus RZ, Lexus’ first ever dedicated electric vehicle, to hit some of the best sustainable cafes, restaurants, bars, experiences and wellness centres on the Gold Coast. 

Currumbin Valley Harvest - Currumbin Valley

Currumbin Valley Harvest is one of the Gold Coast's hidden treasures - a gorgeous roadside community hub overlooking Currumbin Creek, incorporating an organic local growers market and a boho cafe. Bringing together a collection of organic produce from local farmers and growers, this nature-focused locale showcases seasonal and sustainable produce, where customers are encouraged to explore the garden beds and hand pick their own goodies. 

Greenhouse Canteen and Bar - Tallebudgera Valley

Formerly located in Miami, Greenhouse Canteen and Bar has now joined its bathhouse sibling in Tallebudgera Valley. The team behind Greenhouse source all produce from farmers’ markets and trusted suppliers, with the belief that ‘food is medicine’. Serving up a flavour-filled menu of plant-based plates that are designed to nourish the mind, body and soul, dishes are seasonal, organic, macrobiotic and full of raw whole foods and nutrient rich ingredients. 

Eden Health Retreat - Currumbin Valley

Indulge in the ultimate wellness experience at Eden Health Retreat. Set on 400 acres of lush rainforest, this luxurious stay will allow you to disconnect from the day-to-day and reconnect with natural surroundings. Personalise your program with activities including yoga, pilates, contrast therapy, manifestation workshops, sound bowl healing, educational seminars and more. Guests are served organic wholefood meals in the dining area overlooking the valley. There's also a spa area, which includes an infrared sauna, steam room and relaxation area.

Greenhouse The Bathhouse - Tallebudgera Valley

Connected to Greenhouse Canteen & Bar, this luxury bathhouse provides a space for guests to switch off and be immersed in a little piece of paradise. Boasting a range of wellness areas including a heated magnesium hydrotherapy spa, custom built steam room, red cedar sauna, magnesium plunge pool, sun terrace, garden lounge, private massage rooms, botanical bar and event spaces, this is the ultimate spot to reset and recharge. 

Springbrook National Park - Springbrook

Boasting a kaleidoscope of waterfalls, serene rainforests and ancient beauty, Springbrook National Park is the perfect place to switch off from the daily grind. Making up a quarter of the World Heritage listed Gondwana Rainforest, this national park is a must-visit for nature lovers. 

Enjoy the scenic drive to Springbrook National Park in the new Lexus RZ. Setting a new standard in electric vehicle performance, the Lexus RZ is designed to elevate every drive.

Inside, the high-quality craftsmanship extends to a spacious, bright interior with a panoramic roof which allows you to switch the roof panels from clear to opaque at the touch of a button – cutting out UV light instantly.

When it comes to air quality, Lexus isn’t just concerned about the emissions produced by vehicles, it is taking care to ensure the atmosphere inside its cars is kept as pure as possible. Say goodbye to dehydrated skin - the water particle technology stops moisture evaporation and ensures your skin remains smooth and well hydrated while you drive.

The RZ offers vegan upholstery, as well as ambient interior lighting divided into five different colour ‘themes’ - healing, relaxing, arousing, focusing and exhilarating. Sports Luxury grades also feature a new light ornamentation, projecting a series of wedge-shaped lights along the front doors in a pattern to create a sense of organic sweeping lateral flow.

Enjoy complimentary access to fast and ultra-rapid charging of your RZ at selected Chargefox stations during your three year Encore Platinum membership period, and complimentary installation of a home charger. Terms and conditions apply. Visit the website for details.
