Utter the word Pimpama and most Queenslanders will instantly think of the succulent strawberries produced at the iconic Strawberry Farm which has sat along the highway enroute to the Gold Coast for eons.

It makes perfect sense, given this area’s rich farming history which dates back to the mid 1880s when arrowroot crops were first grown in the area, shortly followed by the first sawmill in South East Queensland. From 1868 Cobb & Co coach services terminated their trek from Brisbane here, which inspired the building of two hotels either side of Hotham Creek.

While neither Cobb & Co nor the hotels exist today, Pimpama remains a pivotal point on the journey to the Gold Coast. Once you’ve had your fill of strawberry ice-cream, head to international-standard Gainsborough Greens Golf Course, home to Eastern Grey kangaroos. Strawberries and a roo or too, what’s not to love about Pimpama?
