Come for the day or stay and play. This rainforest playground has it all. Onsite adventures make Thunderbird Park an exciting experience for every age group.

Explore the natural bushland along the walking tracks and see hundreds of colourful birds. Lucky visitors may catch a glimpse of Plato the Platypus. Enjoy breakfast with the birds, chill out on the Terrace or dine in style in the Rainforest Restaurant and Lounge Bar.

Take a break, enjoy the scenery and set up camp on the banks of Cedar Creek. All campsites have a fire pit and easy access to well-maintained amenities.

Kooralbyn Valley Golf Course

Kooralbyn Valley Golf Course is situated at Ramada Resort Kooralbyn Valley, Australia’s first integrated golf resort. The course, designed by renowned Scottish designer Desmond Muirhead, was recently named top Resort Golf Course. Its unique design, carved into a series of valleys, hills and lakes, provides plenty of elevation change. The wildlife is abundant, with hundreds of kangaroos feeding on a daily basis.

Tamborine Mountain Golf Club

Situated 500m above sea level, Tamborine Mountain Golf Club overlooks the Gold Coast. This acclaimed 9-hole, 18 tee golf course is a delight to play any time of the year. Unlike the coastal courses, they don’t flood in the wet season and they’re always several degrees cooler, with minimal humidity during summer. Visiting golfers are welcome to experience their hospitality and challenge the 3, 4 and par 5 holes, then master their elevated bent grass greens that thrive at this altitude.

Beaudesert Golf Club

Beaudesert Golf Club offers 18 holes on gently undulating land with tree-lined fairways and carefully maintained grass greens irrigated daily using recycled water from the main dam. A small creek flows through the course with a variety of creatures enjoying the natural habitat provided.

Boonah Golf Club

Boonah Golf Club’s Signature Hole is the par 4, 9th/ 325m, 18th/ 352m, a challenging water carry for the big hitters who like to drive the green, which is well guarded by bunkers. They have two Par 3s which would take pride of place on any resort course.  Both are attractive from the tee and strategically designed to demand accuracy and precise club selection.

Canungra Golf Club

The course opened in 1972 and has been designed to accommodate players of all skill levels with minimal bunkering and water hazards yet still a challenging layout.

It is predominantly flat but with a couple of elevated tees, tight in places with small couch greens to test approach accuracy.

The shortest par 3 at 138m requires a delicately placed shot to hold the green and the longest par 5 at 514m offers a wide fairway with the last 100m uphill to an elevated bunkered green to test the best of the big-hitters.
