The list of things to do along the Gold Coast is nearly as long as the beach, which is really saying something, since the sand stretches more than 50 km here. If you’re a water lover, you will find everything from surfing to jet skiing in abundant supply. On the other hand, the Gold Coast certainly doesn’t leave landlubbers in the cold. Climb to the Gold Coast SkyPoint Observation Deck for panoramic views of land and sea, then go to the Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary to make some new furry (or feathered) friends.
Getting around on foot near the beach is a breeze, but a car hire on the Gold Coast really opens up your itinerary. With your own set of wheels, you can get from Coolangatta to the rainforest on your own schedule, no questions asked.
What’s that? The big money you saved booking one of our top Gold Coast packages is asking to be spent? You’re in luck; the Gold Coast has everything from charming boutiques to expansive retail outlets. You’ll have no trouble finding a place to pick up designer duds, boardies or a new wetsuit to take home at the end of your holiday.
When you’re ready to take a shopping break and grab some grub, everything from upscale steakhouses to small cafes characterise the gastronomy on the Gold Coast. Whether you’re seeking something savoury or sweet, there is a coastal restaurant serving up food with a view.
At the end of the day, you don’t have to pack it in early at your hotel. Party people can head to the Surfer’s Paradise neighbourhood north of the city of Gold Coast to bust some moves on its packed dance floors. If you went too hard the previous night, keep it a bit more low key with a bar crawl or a waterfront cocktail. Even on a laid-back night, you’re sure to have a smashing time—and you’ll be well rested and ready to rip the next day.
