Just 45 minutes’ drive from the heart of the Gold Coast, Beechmont is a world away from the high-energy buzz of the famous glitter strip. This majestic plateau of the Gold Coast Hinterland commands breath-taking views largely unchanged from those enjoyed by the traditional owners, the Yugambeh people, for thousands of years.
The Yugambeh people called the plateau "The Place of the Binna Burra" referring to the forests of ancient Antarctic Beech trees that still grace the landscape today.
The Beechmont Plateau is one of the numerous northerly spurs of the McPherson Range located south of Tamborine Mountain on the way to Lamington National Park. The area is best known for its many spectacular lookouts, picturesque drives through the countryside and charming spots to stop for a picnic.
On good days hang-gliders flock to Rosin’s Lookout to enjoy the excellent flying conditions. Some days the hang-gliders compete for airspace with model airplane enthusiasts and the natural masters of the sky, our beautiful native birds.
Nearby are a range of accommodation options including quaint bed-and-breakfasts, holiday rentals and beautiful creek side campgrounds.
