Exploring Hinze Dam

 

Gold Coast is famous for its pristine beaches and even better surf.  On this week’s Creek to Coast Liz explored  a far flatter, but equally beautiful body of water in the Gold Coast Hinterland; the Hinze Dam.  She is joined by Matt Wellington from SEQ Water to explore some of the sights – both on and off the water.

While it may not be surprising to learn that Hinze Dam is a great place for kayaking and fishing – it is also a fun destination for mountain bike riders – with a great little mountain bike park sitting on the edge of the dam wall.

A fun way to take in the sights of the dam is on a kayak – especially on hot day.  In this story, Liz dons her lifejacket and sun protection and discovers some special fishing spots and takes in some serene scenery.
