The area is breathtakingly beautiful and there is so much to do there. Follow along as we give you a brief overview of some of the best places to unwind at and have a great time while on the Gold Coast.
1 – If you are looking to sightsee and have the family in tow then you must take advantage of the Best of Brisbane Full Day Sightseeing Tour.
2 – Also high on the list with families is a tree top canopy and park tour in O’Reilly’s Lamington National Park.
3 – Also consider a guided tour by way of four-wheel drive through the fabulous Fraser Island. Be advised that this is a full day tour but it is well worth it.
4 – If you want something really special then you may want to try out a jet boat ride and helicopter flight package. You will first start out with an exhilarating close to one hour jet boat trip and finish off with a nice 10 minute helicopter trip above the Gold Coast.
5 – Another venue famous with families is Gold Coast’s Dreamworld Theme Park. In addition to the usual rides and attractions, Dreamworld Theme Park also features a vast array of over 500 animals native to Australia. Truly something for everyone in the family.
6 – And getting back on the sightseeing track, how about a full day trip through many of the most spectacular places the Gold Coast offers? This is done both by canal cruise as well as a walking tour. There will be commentary along the way as you travel through Broadwater Canal, walk through Springbrook National Park and also see the Natural Bridge Falls.
7 – Or if you prefer your entertainment solely at sea then you find you have a choice of any of a number of sailing and water tours. There are plenty of options to choose from and they run anywhere from as little as 90 minutes all the way up to 10 hours and some are even at night.
8 – Some tours are even overnight or multi-day in nature. For example; there is the two day long four wheel drive camping tour to Moreton Island. And also another two day tour, this one also to Moreton Island but featuring a dolphin feeding tour.
