2. Explore the beautiful beaches that the Gold Coast has to offer!

The Gold Coast is where you’ll find some of the most incredible beaches in the world, offering a range of patrolled beaches between the Southport Spit to Coolangatta.

Set up a picnic or light up the barbie at Burleigh Point and watch the golden surfers paddle out into the line-up as you wait for the sun to go down. The iconic Burleigh Headland is also a gateway to an ocean circuit of rock formations and coastal vegetation – a National Park trail that’s popular among outdoor fitness fiends and tourists, who pinch themselves at the epic views. Along the way are several sidetracks that take you down to the rocky foreshore and sandy beaches of Tallebudgera Creek.

Learn more about the patrolled beaches and where you can find them here.

3. Visit Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary!

Explore even MORE at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary! Cuddle a Koala, pat a kangaroo, feed a crocodile, or discover Lost Valley – a forgotten world where you can get up close to exotic animals. Watch Wild Skies Free Flight Bird Show or immerse yourself in Aboriginal culture at our daily Aboriginal Culture Show

Kids can go wild at Wild Island Adventure Splash Zone featuring 12 a range of timed water jets, streams, and waterfalls to run through!
