Fire up your Friday night at QT’s Stingray Lounge for an unforgettable evening of tacos, tequila and rumba caliente. If salsa isn’t your cup of tea, simply sit back and be transported to Latina America, chilli coconut margarita in hand.
Begin your Gold Coast hinterland foray at dawn with a sunrise hot-air balloon flight. Drive to Canungra, an hour from QT Gold Coast, to take to the skies and soak in views of lush valleys bathed in golden morning light. Your complimentary breakfast is served hot at O’Reilly’s Canungra Valley Vineyards, accompanied by sparkling wine and vineyard views from the verandah of the estate’s grand Queenslander.
An hour and 15 minutes’ drive from the vineyard, serene and secluded glamping tents at Nightfall Camp await. Nestled in an untouched pocket of Lamington National Park, and limited to only eight guests at a time, this fully-catered escape is sure to leave you rejuvenated and at one with nature. Enjoy a massage beside the tumbling waters of Christmas Creek, venture out for a hike or simply enjoy the twin vintage bathtubs and crackling fireplace of your sumptuous safari-style tent.
After dark, Nightfall comes alive with organic meals served under the stars. There’s no set menu – instead, your hosts create a bespoke meal tailored to your tastes. Produce is sourced from the Nightfall kitchen garden and small regional suppliers, with a focus on native bush tucker.
