Take the Camera to the Dam
I was staying a few days on the Gold Coast, and despite a busy schedule wanted to fit in a trip to the Hinterland, Springbrook area. I had never been before.
So, on my second last day set off early. I hadn't planned on visiting the HInze Dam, but when I saw the sign, I decided to check it out.I was impressed.
There's no doubt you could spend a day there - there are plenty of places to walk, fantastic scenery and information about the history of the area. Many Queenslanders will remember Russ Hinze, a larger than life member of the state parliament. It was his grandparents who lived on the land and farmed it, before the dam was built. It was that family after whom the dam was named.
