Sur­rounded by spec­tac­u­lar ge­o­log­i­cal for­ma­tions and an­cient rain­forests, Bris­bane de­liv­ers ex­cep­tional hik­ing ex­pe­ri­ences from short, half-day walk­ing tracks to ex­tended overnight ad­ven­tures. The grand Gold Coast to Hin­ter­land walk is one such trail, con­nect­ing the species-rich Gond­wana Rain­forests of Lam­ing­ton and Spring­brook high­lands through the scenic Nu­min­bah Val­ley. While the full 54-kilo­me­tre track takes four days to com­plete, the Green Moun­tains (O’Reilly) to Binna Burra sec­tion is an ex­cel­lent overnight hike for be­gin­ners, which can be com­pleted in seven hours. Nav­i­gat­ing through Tweed Vol­cano’s high­est re­main­ing basalt lavas, he track then winds through warm to cool sub­trop­i­cal rain­for­est dense with stran­gler figs, palms, hoop pines and vines. At Binna Burra’s pri­vately owned camp­site, hik­ers can pitch their own tent or book a sa­fari-style tent on­site. A camp­ing per­mit booked in ad­vance is re­quired. Dif­fi­culty: Mod­er­ate
