Whether you want beaches or excitement, this fantastic part of the country will deliver. Here are seven ideas you’re going to want to consider if you decide to make the Gold Coast your next travel destination…


Surfer’s Paradise Beach

As the name suggests, this beach side city is a paradise for fans of surfing, but it’s not just surfers who are going to want to visit this incredible area. This pristine beach is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the incredible weather, take a dip in the ocean, party till the wee hours, or enjoy the markets and frequently free events on offer around the beach itself.


SkyPoint Observation Deck

The SkyPoint Observation Deck is located in the Q1 building and is a fantastic choice if you want to enjoy the vista of the coast and the hinterland and everything in between. According to http://www.q1.com.au/play/skypoint-observation-deck, the Observation Deck stands at over 230m, and the external building climb is a treat for thrill-seekers. When you’ve made your way to the top, relax and enjoy the 360° view.


Springbrook National Park

If you’re more of an outdoor-pursuits kind of traveller, then Springbrook National Park is a beautiful breath of fresh air atop an ancient volcano, 45 minutes from the coast. You can explore the walkways, visit the waterfalls, and see the stunning natural bridge formations. There's a gorgeous little community with markets, yummy local eats and even rainforest hideaway's to stay the night. 


Dreamworld and Whitewater World

Let your imagination play at Dreamworld - a fascinating, fun experience suitable for visitors of all ages. The Gold Coast's biggest amusement park has a variety of rides for the thrill-seekers, including five roller coasters of various sizes, kids shows, a Tiger Island and a Lego Certified Store full of your favourite characters.

There's even private cabanas for the adults to completely escape into.
