Gold Coast Wineries
As one of Queensland's fastest growing wine regions, the Gold Coast hinterland is making its mark with state, national and international wine and tourism awards.
With a range of wineries located at Mount Tamborine, Mount Nathan, Canungra and Lamington, you can fill a couple of days visiting them all. The range of different micro-climates of the Gold Coast wine-growing region make for optimum growing conditions in which a variety of grapes can be successfully grown.
The Gold Coast has a wonderful variety of sub-tropical fruits and berries which has helped to create a fruit wine industry producing tables wines, liqueurs, port style wines, dessert wines and sparkling wines.
Most of the major tour operators offer day trips to the major wineries on the Gold Coast so you can enjoy a few tasty drops and some delicious food and views at the cellar doors. We've selected some of the best for you to browse through. Book Gold Coast winery accommodation and turn it into a romantic weekend getaway.
