Living on the Southern end of the Gold Coast, I often spend my spare time exploring the south: Northern NSW, Dreamtime Beach, Byron Bay, Minyon Falls etc. This weekend I thought I would do something different and head North to Coombabah Lakelands Nature Reserve, located near Harbour Town Shopping centre. Here you will find a lake, a broad walk and an abundance of native flora and fauna.
I always love finding new places so enjoyed my adventure to Coombabah Lakelands, however must admit that it there are many other places I would recommend checking out before heading here, especially if you have limited time.
Coombabah Lakelands – Shelter Road
We started out at Coombabah Lakelands – Shelter Road, which is near the animal welfare. From here you will find a short trail that leads through the bush to a broad walk over mangroves and out to a shed on the lake, all pictured below.

After we finished this short walk we went to another area of Coombabah Lakelands where we found a longer track. This was a five minute drive from Shelter Road. The walk started as a broad walk over the water then turned into a path beside the river, which is where we came across a massive Kangaroo. This area is full of Kangaroos and native wildlife.
