It is very easy to get there, either by car or public transport. Take exit 89 from the Pacific Motorway and follow the signs to Gold Coast Highway. Then turn to Goodwin Terrace to reach the Northern entrance. If travelling by bus, take 700, 702, 706 from Surfers Paradise. The access to the Park is generally open all the time; however some sections can be closed due to wet weather.
Though the Park is quite small, you can see the remnants of ancient volcanic activities, rainforest and unique coastal marine life there. Choose from two walks (class 3 Australian Standards): Ocean-view walk (1.2 km one way) or Rainforest circuit (2.3km return). (See the Park map.) The latter is leading to the lookout on the top of the hill with a beautiful coastal view from Coolangatta to Surfers Paradise. Sometimes visitors can even spot migrating whales from there. When you are walking along the ocean, take a look at the Echo Beach, which is hidden behind the trees.
Not many people usually stay there, so it is a good place to chill out and watch people fishing or try your luck, if you have a gear with you. After finishing a walk, it is good to revive with a picnic on the grass, just near the Park's northern entrance or check out nearby cafes.
In summer you can also swim here, at Burleigh beach or have fun with body board/surf board. Burleigh is a well-known place among surfers as beginners and intermediates can catch good rolling waves there. Hiring options are available on the beach, next to the Surf Club.
On Sundays when the sun goes down, there is an interesting event – some people get together in the park near the Surf Club to master fire twirling, African drums and dance skills. It is absolutely free and everyone is welcome to participate in creating a great atmosphere.
