Tamborine National Park Review


More than 20 million years ago, volcanic eruptions created rugged landscapes, while fertile volcanic soils produced the luxuriant tracts of rain forest that make up enchanting Tamborine National Park. This is the most developed region of the Gold Coast Hinterland, and it's worth spending a day or two here. Apart from the natural environment, there are wineries, lodges, restaurants, and the famed Gallery Walk, a 1-km-long (-mi-long) street lined with art galleries. Some of the simplest (under two hours) and best trails here are the Cedar Creek Falls Track, with waterfall views; Palm Grove Rainforest Circuit; and Macdonald Rainforest Circuit, a quieter walk popular with bird-watchers. Start your visit with a stop at Tamborine Mountain Visitor Information Centre, open 10 am to 3 pm daily. Several fragmented parks make up Tamborine National Park. To the east of Witches Falls is Joalah National Park, where a 1-km (1-mi) circuit takes you to a rocky pool at the base of Curtis Falls. Witches Falls. Queensland's first national park, Witches Falls, has excellent picnic facilities and a 3-km (2-mi) walk that snakes downhill through open rain forest and past lagoons.

Food Peters Fish Market


It was located in Main Beach right behind the luxury Versace hotel.. it was quite confusing for us since the area is quite high-class.. but between the luxurious buildings, there, the simple and humble stall of Peter's Fish Market. Basically, it is really a fish market. you'll find lots of fresh seafood just like you'll find in the supermarket.. the choice is yours.. you can pick whatever seafood you like at any weight then take it to the cashier, make your choice of cooking, pay and you will get a number.. once your dishes are ready, the cashier will call you by your number and you have to pick your orders.. or, if you're amateurs like us, just go to the cashier, choose from the available menu, make your payment and get your number.. I think I don't have to re-emphasize that we, the young ladies, have no clue at all on how to choose fish or shrimps or any other seafood.. so, we're taking the short cuts and made our orders based on what's written on the black board.. our choices went to their specials, fish of the day, small calamari, 2 prawn cutlets, seafood stick and small chips (AUD16.00).. other than that, we had prawn skewer(around AUD3.00) and grilled snapper in lemongrass sauce (around AUD13.00).. one important thing is there will be no free sauce given, instead, we have to buy it.. a small container of sweet chili andtartar sauce each cost us AUD2.00.. that is almost equivalent to Rp20,000 each! since the place was quite packed, we waited quite a while.. until finally we heard our number being called.. dinner is served!

Black Coffee Lyrics (breakfast and coffee)


Run by four very cool young guys originally from the Sunshine Coast, Black Coffee Lyricsis the place to be seen on the coast. So hip it hurts, the caf turns from its daytime trade to an awesome bar with themed nights throughout the week (dont miss the Mexican bingo nights). The breakfasts are famous (the eggs smothered in basil cream is the stuff of dreams) and the coffee is ground exclusively for the caf. With board games, books and great music playing its a place to linger. In fact, its so hot the venue was named in the Top 5 Peoples Choice in The Australians Top 50 Hottest Restaurants, up there with Vue de Monde and Flying Fish. Not bad!

Hellenika
Lamb shoulder. Thats all you need to know to add Hellenika to your list of must-tries. This Greek restaurant in Nobbys Beach not only has some of the best atmosphere and dcor along the coast, it also has the juiciest, falling-off-the bone lamb shoulder to be eaten. Ever. Hellenika is on the side of one of the busiest highways in Australia, however the unlikely setting makes the cosy and welcoming atmosphere inside even more surprising. Owned by a Greek and with an Irish head chef, the food is traditional but with a modern take. Its also one of the best spots for a long Sunday lunch, just be prepared to leave full!
