Hinterland Regional Park

A beautiful regional park situated in Mudgeeraba. The parklands cover 62 hectares and are a great location to undertake a range of recreational activities, or to just sit back and enjoy nature.

This parkland was the first Mudgeeraba land to be settled by Europeans in 1869. The original vegetation has been highly modified in the past 140 years as a result of:

  • clearing timber cutting for sawmills and fence posts and rails
  • grazing by beef and dairy cattle
  • construction of water pipelines and power lines
  • invasion by introduced pasture legumes and escapees from gardens
  • dam construction.

The park has a very active bushcare group who assist the City of Gold Coast with restoring and maintaining the natural areas within the area. The group meet on the first Saturday of the month from February to November 8am to 10am.

For more information visit our Hinterland Regional Park Bushcare Group page or view the Nature Play QLD ideas for kids website.
