I’ll admit it: despite living in South East Queensland for most of my life, I haven’t travelled within my amazing region. Where does one start there’s too many options and hidden treasures? That’s where Crafted Coast Tour Co fits in.

Crafted Coast Tour Co launched earlier this year, yes it is a new business to the area but the owner and operator is no newbie to the region, Andrew has lived in the area for over 30 years and he knows all the hidden secrets the Gold Coast has to offer, he’s also fond of a craft beer bar when the occasion allows for it… which is never often enough!

Crafted Coast Tours is a tour guide business that is able to tailor your desired experience to your specific wants and needs, a flexible option for those who don’t want to be dragged around by a run of the mill tour guide and crammed on a bus and driven to the same old tourist locations that you can find in any local tourism brochure.

Andrew says most individuals are surprised by all the hidden locations on the Gold Coast and his favourite part of the tour is turning the day into a memorable experience for his participants and making them his pals by the end of the tour.

“The three main tours I offer are the Boutique Beer Day, a Rainforest and Waterfalls Experience and a Food, Wine and Beer Trail on Mt Tamborine, I also offer specialised tours such as skatepark and guided photography tours from time to time,” said Andrew.

Here is Crafted Coast Tour owner Andrew’s favourite three spots on the Gold Coast to visit:

  • Burleigh Heads for beach scenery, great food and chilled vibes. 
  • The Hinterland for stunning views and breath taking ancient natural wonders. 
  • Our local breweries for a taste of Gold Coast ingenuity!

All online reviews by tour participants on Facebook have been overwhelming positive, this is something Andrew is very proud of.

“Andrew was a great guide and even if you’re a local you should give it a go as you never know what hidden gems he’ll take you to! Great value for money,” said one tour participant.
