We took a bus here and walked over a kilometer from the bus stop to this area. We went in the evening around 5pm and saw many free roaming kangaroos coming out in search of food. This area also has koala bears but we were not lucky enough to spot any. Not so many tourists around. Seems like a well kept secret. Coming here and mingling with the kangaroos was the highlight of our trip to the Gold Coast. Best of all, it was FREE.
This nature reserve managed by the state has very beautiful lakes and peaks.
