We at Witches Falls consider ourselves experts in picnicking, after all, it is a large part of the experience here at the Winery. To help spread the joy, we have listed our top 5 picnicking locations within a 50km radius of the Gold Coast.
5. Burleigh Hill, Burleigh
What can we say about Burleigh that you haven’t already seen on social media? This fantastically instagrammable destination is situated atop the picturesque Burleigh Headlands and offers magnificent views that stretch all the way to Surfers Paradise.
With such an ideal picnic location, the Hill is among the most popular destinations on the Gold Coast and one of the best places to catch the sunset.
4. Fingal Lighthouse
One of the most easterly points of Australia, this sleepy little town makes for the perfect picnicking destination. Just south of the border, lush grassy parklands frame the trek up towards the lighthouse. A whale-watching hotspot, Fingal is the ideal destination for those looking to enjoy a bit of tranquility.
3. The Spit, Main Beach
The Spit plays host to not only the world’s greatest dog beach, but is among the Gold Coast’s most delightful parklands. The way we see it, anything involving copious amounts of dog deserves a place in the top five.
2. Currumbin Rock Pools
Tucked away from all the hustle and bustle of Currumbin beach, the Rock Pools are perhaps the Gold Coast’s best-kept secret. Follow the creek inland for a mere 15 minutes to discover this hidden gem within the lush Currumbin Valley.
