Twin Falls

It's currently sitting at an average temperature of 27 degrees Celsius here in Brisbane and it's only half way through spring. These high temps are just a taste for what summer is going to be like and theres only one way to beat the heat.. A coastal hike with a dip in a waterfall.

This gold coast hinterland hike went for roughly 2-3hours and gave you all the views you could ever wish for. Top, bottom, side, and behind the waterfall were all apart of the route and gosh, was it the best hike I've completed so far.

All you can hear throughout the hike is the natural running of water getting louder the closer you come to each lookout, and the chirping of birds resting in the canopy.

Swimming in the falls and a track leading behind

Along the track there were a few natural trickles of water that we decided to have a taste of. Definitely got in touch with nature on this day and got out of my comfort zone on some of the activities we did.

Finding new tracks to hike is by far my favourite activity to do during the hotter seasons. Something about being lost in a forest with no reception and taking in some fresh air was just so relaxing, I could even meditate in the middle of the hike. 

If you're ever in Australia and on the Gold Coast, I'd highly suggest putting aside a day to complete the Spring Brook National Park Twin Falls hike. You won't be disappointed.


So please, leave me some feedback on my posts. I'd love to know what you think and take onboard any tips you may have.

Follow me, my journey, my experiences, my memories and see the world through my eyes.

Until next time, Mia xx

Thanks Jay. I'm yet to visit our neighbour New Zealand, but I'm hoping to go sometime next year. I've heard nothing but great things about them :)
