The Numinbah Valley is a valley and suburb in the Gold Coast hinterland in South East Queensland, Australia and a great place to take pictures. This Scenic Rim valley covers 116 km² and contains cleared grazing land, rocky outcrops, waterfalls, rainforest walks and good hinterland scenery. Lonely Planet has described the valley as the most beautiful in South East Queensland.
Compared to other areas of the Gold Coast the Numinbah Valley has remained largely undeveloped in recent decades. To the east is the Springbrook plateau. On the eastern side of the valley is the Natural Bridge in Springbrook National Park and to the west lies the Lamington Plateau and the Lamington National Park. To the south is the Tweed Valley.
The valley was first explored by timber cutters seeking cedar in 1845. Bullocks hauled the felled timer to Nerang. Later in the 1860s, when a route to the Tweed Valley was discovered as surveyors mapped the Queensland/New South Wales border, settlers moved into the area. A township developed in the 1880s. A sawmill operated from 1909 until 1944 when agriculture and dairying became the primary industries.
