1 | Lores Bonney Lookout
You’ll find this amazing hidden spot at the top of a stretch of stairs in Miami. It’s easy to drive right past it, so keep your eyes peeled for it. Walk up the stairs, then go to the right. You’ll find a path, hidden in a break in the bushes. Walkout and down, carefully. This amazing spot juts out from the mainland and gives you the most incredible views of the Gold Coast, from Surfers Paradise right down to the other end of the coast.
2 | Snapper Rocks Surf Club
This spot offers up some really gorgeous views of the coastline and, best of all, the sunset! Sunsets at this place are hard to beat! I love coming here in the afternoon, have a drink with friends and see the waves rolling in front of us. This is the most famous surf break on the coast! Think surfers, gorgeous girls, lifeguard towers and beautiful blue water.
3 | Natural Bridge
Springbrook National Park offers you a couple of great Insta pic locations, the most beautiful and unique being the Natural Bridge rock arch. When you get the right angle and the light hits the water running through the cave, it’s a guaranteed winner!
4 | Kirra Lookout
One of the very best views of the Gold Coast, up high, can be found at the Kirra Lookout. Breathtaking views of the Gold Coast, and a giant eagle statue, viewfinders to look through and a shaded area to sit awhile. It’s a great spot to eat your lunch with a million-dollar view and get some gorgeous photos of Kirra and the coast.
5| Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary
The Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary is the perfect place to get up-close and personal with some of the most photogenic critters around. This sanctuary is one of the most popular tourist destinations on the Gold Coast for a reason. Dedicated to conserving Australia’s Indigenous, natural and historic heritage and culture, this trip will be a fun and educational adventure for everyone.
