Create fond memories of your next family holiday with a trip to the Gold Coast! With its spectacular white sandy beaches, thrill-seeking theme park rides & scenic rainforests and natural attractions, the Gold Coast is a must see destination. Read our blog on things to do before you go!
Visiting the Gold Coast
Renowned for its beauty, the Gold Coast boasts 59 kilometres of stunning coastline filled with world-famous beaches. From Paradise Point to Tweed Heads, you will be sure to find the perfect beach spot for you. Surfers Paradise, one of the main beaches, has everything on offer with cafes and shops just a short walk away and beach front markets on Wednesdays.
If you are bringing the family or want somewhere a bit quieter, we recommend visiting Burleigh Heads. Its calmer atmosphere and protected waters makes it a perfect spot for a family day at the beach! With such a competitive market on holidays to Australia, you are sure to find a great deal to suit your needs.
With the biggest theme parks in the Southern Hemisphere you won't miss out on a thrill here. Take the whole family to Movie World, Dream World, Sea World or Wet n Wild world and become lost in a world of adventure! The kids won't get bored at these theme parks and there are rides and attractions for all ages.
Movie World and Dream World are the main theme parks in the GC and are perfect if you are after a thrill! If you are travelling with younger children we recommend visiting Sea World. It is the best theme park for kids under 6 years old.
Scenic Drives and natural attractions
With the Gold Coast having so much to offer from theme parks and beaches to fine dining and entertainment, don't forget to experience the beautiful natural attractions available. With its beautiful coastline bordered by lush hinterland, what better place to take the family on a road trip? Less than an hour drive from Surfers, visit the stunning Tamborine Rainforest to submerge yourself in nature and try out their Skywalk for a spectacular tree top view! If you have time you can also visit the nearby Tamborine Mountain, their Glow Worm Caves are a sight not to miss.
