A great way to maximize the use of the early sunrise, cooler night and morning temperatures, lighter traffic on the roads and a train at a station to finish at 3am. Anyone keen for something?

If its around 150km and not too difficult, I would be interested.

But alas many of us have other commitments that night.
Bear in mind also that there are a lot of hot heads and loose nuts on the roads that night.
etc etc etc.
But if you must then your options would include Nerang to Beechmont to catch the sunrise, then return.
Or Petrie to OceanView (Mt Mee) to do the same.
There is a nice park looking east at upper Beechmont (popular with the gliding crowd) and i think there is something similar at OceanView/Mt Mee.

How epic ? If your thinking 300k with 4k of elevation , I'm definitely in!
We could start down the Gold Coast head to Springbrook - Beechmont - Binna Burra - O'Reillys - North Tamborine - Back to Brisbane via the V1.
I have serious lighting that can burn all night long and it would be a great way to see in the new year.
