A surprise visit to Hinze Dam
With interstate relatives up for a visit, the first place I wanted to take them was Springbrook’s Best of All Lookout, so we headed north along the M1 and took Exit 80 to Springbrook Road.
Unfortunately the Gold Coast City Council was conducting maintenance on the first section of Springbrook Road, so we were diverted and our first port of call was Hinze Dam.
Things to do these holidays
This holiday season you must take the time to visit Hinze Dam. What is so amazing is how quiet it is…hardly a sound and when you are gazing down into those blue waters remember this is our drinking water.
A word of caution if you want to walk along the Dam wall, do so early in the day. The sun is quite intense and the reflection off the water and Dam Wall can make it a hot walk, it’s approximately 4km round trip.
It can be a long journey if you get over heated..
The good news is that there is a cafe and the outlook over Waterside Park is very appealing and serene.
