The Gold Coast is one of our favourite holiday destinations where there is an unlimited amount of fun to be had.

We have chosen our 3 favourite things to do to spark some travel inspiration for when Queensland is good to go.

1. The beaches (of course)

It’s no secret that the Gold Coast is home to some of Australia’s best beaches. Your options are limitless with the top picks being Burleigh Heads Beach, Coolangatta Beach, Kirra Beach and of course, Surfers Paradise beach. If you are looking to get away from the hustle of the city, Snapper Rocks is the beach for you.

2. The theme parks 

Quite possibly the most well-known attractions on the Gold Coast are the theme parks. There are a bunch of options to every traveller type. If you are more of an adventure seeker, Dreamworld and Warner Bros. Movie World are the places for you.

For some family fun, Wet’n’Wild is a good bet (as long as you don’t mind getting drenched!) and Sea World is the place to be if you want to get up close and personal with some animals. Outback Spectacular is included in theme park tickets so make sure you check out this amazing show!

Located on an iconic Queensland landmark, the Q1 Resort Building, Sky Point Climb gives the opportunity for the adventure seekers to have the thrill while also taking in the sights of the Gold Coast. There are 6 different options for your climb, the Day Climb, the Day Climb and Dine package, the Night Climb, the Twilight Climb, the Morning and Dine package and the Sunrise Climb.
