The hinterland of Brisbane beckons bushwalkers, nature lovers, and really anyone who wants some fresh air away from the city. Highlights include Bunya Mountains National Park, a rainforest park within three hours’ drive from Brisbane, with rare plant life and bird species and a range of walking trails. Mount Coot-tha Forest is the green area on the map stretching north from Brisbane Botanic Gardens and Gap Creek Reserve to Lake Wivenhoe (great for fishing). Don’t miss Jollys Lookout, about 25km from Brisbane up Mount Nebo – a hot spot for picnics, bushwalking and spectacular hinterland views.
Southern Cross 4WD Tours offers a Full Day Natural Bridge and Tamborine National Park in a 4WD from $135 per adult, $95 per child from Brisbane or the Gold Coast. Go hot air ballooning with Balloon Aloft from $250 for 30 minutes, also from Brisbane or the Gold Coast. Or hop on a scenic helicopter flight and take in the jewels of the Gold Coast: the beaches and the hinterland. It’s available from $960 for 3 people for an hour-long flight on Adrenaline. Alternatively, get to the Sunshine Coast Hinterland and explore Noosa with this tour on Viator for $109 per person.
From Brisbane's CBD, expect the following driving distances to get to the area's local attractions. Some of the below are also within easy reach of Gold Coast and the Sunshine Coast. If you're going on a multi-stop trip along the Queensland coast, some places may be more easily accessed from those areas.

finder.com.au is one of Australia's leading comparison websites. We compare from a wide set of major banks, insurers and product issuers.
finder.com.au has access to track details from the product issuers listed on our sites. Although we provide information on the products offered by a wide range of issuers, we don't cover every available product. You should consider whether the products featured on our site are appropriate for your needs and seek independent advice if you have any questions.
Products marked as 'Promoted' or "Advertisement" are prominently displayed either as a result of a commercial advertising arrangement or to highlight a particular product, provider or feature. Finder may receive remuneration from the Provider if you click on the related link, purchase or enquire about the product. Finder's decision to show a 'promoted' product is neither a recommendation that the product is appropriate for you nor an indication that the product is the best in its category. We encourage you to use the tools and information we provide to compare your options and find the best option for you.
The identification of a group of products, as 'Top' or 'Best' is a reflection of user preferences based on current website data. On a regular basis, analytics drive the creation of a list of popular products. Where these products are grouped, they appear in no particular order.
Where our site links to particular products or displays 'Go to site' buttons, we may receive a commission, referral fee or payment.
We try to take an open and transparent approach and provide a broad based comparison service. However, you should be aware that while we are an independently owned service, our comparison service does not include all providers or all products available in the market.
Some product issuers may provide products or offer services through multiple brands, associated companies or different labelling arrangements. This can make it difficult for consumers to compare alternatives or identify the companies behind the products. However, we aim to provide information to enable consumers to understand these issues.
Providing or obtaining an estimated insurance quote through us does not guarantee you can get the insurance. Acceptance by insurance companies is based on things like occupation, health and lifestyle. By providing you with the ability to apply for a credit card or loan we are not guaranteeing that your application will be approved. Your application for credit products is subject to the Provider's terms and conditions as well as their application and lending criteria.
