The Gold Coast is known for its sunshine, beaches, surfing and theme parks. These are the number one things people think of when they are thinking of visiting the Gold Coast and for good reason! The beaches are amazing, the sand between your toes, the ocean crashing – It is like a dream.
However there is so much more to explore and do whilst on the Gold Coast.
Springbrook National Park –
This amazing national park has many hidden treasures with bushwalks and waterfalls taking you into a natural wonderland. The Natural Bridge is a short walk into the park and showcases a rock formation over an eroded cave.
The Toolona Creek Circuit is a great walk to go through if you want to see waterfalls, creeks and Antarctic Beech trees.
Q1 Skypoint –
Visiting the Skypoint will give you a view that is to die for. There is the option to go straight to the observation deck or if you are a bit of a daredevil you can complete the Skypoint climb, which gives you a 90 minute walk up the tower on the outside, viewing everything as you go.
Ripley’s Believe it or Not –
That’s right! You can see all the weird and wonderful delights of Ripley’s right here on the Gold Coast. A great day out with the kids full of education, amazement and squealing.
The Gold Coast is home to an array of shopping centres, supporting all of your retail needs. Pacific Fair homes hundreds of designer brands and even offer 5 hours free parking so you can shop without the stress of paying for parking.
If you are looking for a bit of fun with your shopping, make sure you visit the Chervon Renaissance shopping Centre.
When you visit Robina shopping centre, make sure you visit The Kitchens; eating your way around the world. They also provide cooking lessons and demonstrations.
Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary –
A great day out with the kids. Exploring the different animals, watching shows and feeding the kangaroos.
The Gold Coast is so much more than just the beaches and there is so much for you to discover.
