Whether you are interested in the beaches, outback activities, sports, or visiting a World Heritage-recognized site, you will find what appeals to you.
Below are five family activities you must do while visiting the Gold Coast.
Be One with Nature
Yes, the Gold Coast does not lack enough natural sites to visit. The national parks are a must-visit place in this city. The fact that the national parks fall under World Heritage Gondwana Rainforests ensures that you have access to well-preserved locations. Visit the Natural Bridge to learn how it was formed. A visit to the national parks is something your entire family will love doing. It costs nothing to visit the national parks. Take the family to any of the following:
- Mount Barney National Park
- Main Range National Park
- Green Mountains of Lamington National Park
- Springbrook National Park
- Burleigh Head National Park
Exploring on Two Wheels
Yes, the bike offers a good way of touring and exploring the local beaches. It is true that not everybody loves the idea of walking on the beaches with sand running between the toes. Get a few cruisers for each member of the family. You don’t have to buy a cruiser for everybody. It’s cheaper to hire them for a short period of time. The hinterland is a good place worth exploring on these two wheels too. Gondwana Rainforest has five cycling trails worth testing.
Watch a Flick
Movies are favorite pastimes of many people in the Gold Coast. Take the family to watch different types of movies. Visit the theaters to watch latest Hollywood blockbusters, or just that low-budget film that has become the latest craze all over town. Visit Nerang Cineplex for an opportunity to enjoy some nail-biting thrillers with the family. The tickets are almost as good as free; hence, no need for worrying about money.
Blast Your Taste Buds
Take your family to taste some Gold Coast’s best ice creams and watch to see the person who can last long without squealing in delight. Gelato Messina, which is located in Coolangatta, is worth visiting with your entire clan. Obviously, the person with a sweet tooth would not enjoy the experience. Nevertheless, take this opportunity to indulge in as many ice creams as you can from a list that features 40 freshly whipped flavors.
Who doesn’t love taking photos today? Your kids are already on different social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat and Instagram to mention a few. They take, send and share numerous photos every day with their friends. Offer them an opportunity for taking more unique photos beside the beach when the sun sets or rises. The dusk and dawn images will stay long in the family’s memory – both real and virtual.
