Greenmount – Point Danger Natural History Walk
So you think you have seen the Gold Coast, but never like this before. Now it’s time to discover the fascinating untold natural history of the Gold Coast region. On our easy walk along the coast from Greenmount to the Tweed River, we will travel back 400 million years to when the Gold coast area first arose above the ocean waves and we were still connected to the ancient continent of Gondwana. On our Natural History Walk we will stop and inspect these ancient rocks that make up most of the hills in the area. We will discover ancient river beds that were filled with flows of basalt when the Tweed Volcano erupted, 20-22 MYA. With the help of historical photos we will be able to see the changes made by man in his effort to control Mother Nature as well as the lasting effects the last ice-age has made on the way we live and travel on the Gold Coast. Along the walk we will also discuss the early indigenous uses of flora and fauna in the area. You will never view the Gold Coast the same again. WHERE We will meet outside the Greenmount Kiosk, next to the Surf Life Saving Club on the corner of Marine Parade and Hill St Greenmount Beach, Coolangatta. WHEN Walks start at 9am and 1pm Qld time DURATION This easy circuit will take Two – Three Hours; we will be stopping often for discussions and to take in the views. Purchase for 5 people and the 6th person is free!
