A playground for the young, old and everyone in between

One of Australia’s top holiday destinations is the sunny seaside location of the Gold Coast. Long stretches of beach, theme parks, glitz, glamour and a vibrant night life sums up this playground for the young, old and anyone in between!

Enjoy the outdoors all year round

The Gold Coast’s subtropical climate means you can enjoy the great outdoors all year round. Summer is the ideal time to experience its glorious beaches and enjoy the spectacle of surfing competitions. While winter is the ideal time to head out for some whale watching and escape Australia’s southern, cooler locations. If partying hard with the youngsters isn’t your thing, we suggest you avoid the Gold Coast during the infamous Schoolies Week from the end of November to the first week in December.

Most of the main attractions of the Gold Coast revolve around water, so don’t forget your swimmers (or do and have a good excuse to buy some brand spanking new ones!). Experience the thrill of Jet Boat Extreme adventure or have a tour of the city starting on land and ending up in the water with Superduck tours. If a slower pace appeals, head out exploring the Gold Coast on a river cruise, have a chance to see the ocean's enormous creatures on a whale watching tour or get up close to the marine life during a snorkelling expedition.

Top 6 Things to Do on the Gold Coast
