Holidays to the Gold Coast
Surfers flock to the Gold Coast like moths to a flame, but even if hanging 10 isn’t your thing, you can still have the time of your life in this Queensland destination. High-rises, theme parks and relaxing spas are a big part of the landscape here, so there is always something to do. Outdoor enthusiasts and foodies alike will find a home away from home on the Gold Coast. Even better, thanks to killer Wotif deals on Gold Coast holidays, you can plan your dream holiday without spending an arm and a leg in the process.
Things to Do on the Gold Coast
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.
Shopping, Dining & Nightlife
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.
Wotif always has spectacular Gold Coast package deals. When you combine our awesome airfares with great hotel rates, it translates to a guilt-free holiday. Whether you’re off on a luxury escape or looking to enjoy a budget holiday on the beach, Wotif packages to Queensland let you find a holiday that’s just your cup of tea. Why wait?
