Gold Coast, Queensland
Gold Coast is a popular tourism destination for domestic and international tourists, they were also host to the 2018 Commonwealth Games. Tourists are attracted because of the golden beaches that are soaked in sun throughout the day. But, as the sun sets, it casts the silhouette of the amazing Gold Coast hinterland.
We love cycling around the Gold Coast because it is possible to choose a flat ride along the beach and through the canal estates. A leisurely ride is possible by pausing at one of many coffee shops or bakeries. But, you can also head to the challenge of long hills with varying gradient. For example, Mount Tambourine in 4 possible ways.
Beechmont and Binna Burra is a favourite hinterland destination for many and both villages were affected by the 2019 fires. One of the earliest blazes destroyed the historic Binna Burra lodge, nestled on the border escarpment. However, our favourite rides are those up to Springbrook or across the NSW and QLD border over Tomewin.
Gold Coast is the perfect destination for a training camp or a winter escape.
Sunshine Coast, Queensland
Sunshine Coast is also a popular destination for domestic and international tourists. Similar to Gold Coast, there are sun-drenched beaches and an incredible hinterland to discover.
The coastline is more rugged than the Gold Coast beaches without the same skyscraper development. Sunny Coast communities are very tight-knit and host many markets and events throughout the year. The ever popular Eumundi markets connect local craft makers with a wide demographic.
2019 bushfires affected the areas around Noosa such as Peregian and Cooroibah, at times burning completely to the beach.
The nation’s biggest multi-sport festival is hosted as part of the Noosa Triathlon each year. This great event has encouraged the development of great cycling infrastructure and a supportive community. Like the Gold Coast, the Sunshine Coast provides a wonderful landscape for a training camp or a winter escape.
