Combine beaches, urban attractions, theme parks and rainforest walks with a stay in glorious Gold Coast, eastern Australia.
Just an hour south of trendy Brisbane, Gold Coast – also known as Surfers Paradise for its beach of the same name – is a popular holiday destination for Australians, who head here in droves to experience the waterside attraction’s top surfing spots.
A modern city where high-rise buildings meet the beach – think Miami – you can spend a morning lazing on Main Beach, before cycling down to Surfers Paradise for a cooling dip and stopping for lunch at a beachfront restaurant along the way. Your afternoon could then be spent shopping in the designer boutiques and wandering the evening markets, before heading deeper into the city for a boogie thanks to the lively nightlife scene.
The next day you could try one of the area’s theme parks, such as Wet ‘n’ Wild, Warner Bros Movie World and Dreamworld; your Travel Specialists can pre-arrange tickets for these and more.
Or perhaps the natural world is more up your street? There are lots of inland waterways to explore on a boat trip or walks through Burleigh Heads National Park to enjoy. Alternatively, why not join a 4WD eco-tour to the World Heritage-listed rainforests of the Gold Coast hinterland?
