The gruelling Queensland summer is well and truly over – time to get out and about and make the most of our glorious autumn days. Whether you are craving a serene bush walk, a wild ride on your motorbike or a good old fishing expedition, the Beenleigh Yatala Motor Inn is the perfect basecamp.
Located halfway between Brisbane and the Gold Coast, this 4-Star Motel is ideal for outdoor enthusiasts, who still like their mod-cons after a bracing day out. Family friendly and an easy drive from a number of stunning day trip destinations, the Beenleigh Yatala Motor Inn offers everything you need for that long overdue family getaway.
Be honest: How long has it been since you’ve actually been fishing? In an actual boat and with the actual chance of a catch? It’s been too long, hasn’t it? Never fear. The Beenleigh Yatala Motor Inn is barely twenty minutes from the excellent fishing ground that is Jacob’s Well. Teeming with whiting, bream and flathead, this is any fisherman’s dream. Best of all, there’s a boat hire and tackle shop right by the local boat ramp – so all there’s left to do is jump in a tinny and show the kids how to cast a line.
There is nothing quite as liberating as cruising along on your bike, cool wind in your face and breathtaking scenery all around you. Luckily, we’re here to provide accommodation close to Mount Tamborine, a place of great natural beauty…and epic motorcycling routes. If you want to get the most out of your bike and the location, we urge you to check out the “Goat Track”. This spectacular route, also known as Mt Tamborine Road, will take you on a rambling climb with stunning vistas, before you cruise on to relax at Lloyd’s Restaurant with a well-deserved drink.
However, that’s not the only reason to hop on the bike and head for a little break in Yatala – there is also the legendary AMA Clearance Warehouse. This mecca for bike aficionados with a budget will leave you first speechless and then well-equipped to hit the Goat Track.
True, it can be hard to get all the family motivated for a bush walk. The usual complaints might range from the long drive to get to the actual walking track to every kid’s favourite catchphrase: Boooooring! However, thanks to our affordable family suits and close proximity to a huge range of walking tracks across Mount Tamborine National Park, there will be nothing left to complain about when you book your family into the Beenleigh Yatala Motor Inn.
Mount Tamborine offers bush walks for all ages and abilities, with easy access to a number of spectacular waterfalls that might tempt you for a dip no matter how crisp the weather.
Plus, if the children choose to keep up their protests, you can always bribe them with a day out in one of the amusement parks (Warner Brothers’ Movie World, Wet’n’Wild and Dreamworld) not fifteen minutes from your accommodation.
It’s time to embrace the great outdoors and explore this glorious backyard of ours. Staying close to home has never been as exciting…or as comfortable.
