Top 6 Reasons to Go to the Gold Coast
The Gold Coast is a favourite holiday destination amongst Australians and international guests. Families love it for its bright sunny weather, attraction and theme parks; while, singles are free to experience the great nightlife or simply relax on the spectacular beaches. There are plenty of reasons to visit the Gold Coast including:-
Go crazy at the theme parks – Queensland really is Australia’s theme park state. With more than six theme and adventure parks, you could spend a whole week alone visiting them. The most popular choices for families and adventure seekers alike are Sea World, Movie World, Dream World and Wet n’ Wild.
Amazing beaches – home to some of the most beautiful beaches not only in Australia but throughout the world, Queensland sure puts on a show for sun seekers and surfers alike. One of the most popular and renowned beaches in Queensland is Surfers Paradise, where shopping mecca Cavill Avenue meets beach bum fun. Oh, and don’t forget to keep an eye out for those stunning Meter Maids – they might save you from a parking fine or two. If you’re looking for a little excitement, hire a board or enrol in a class and learn how to surf – it is a ton of fun.
Hundreds of great accommodation options – If you want to be well placed to experience all the sights and sounds of Queensland, chances are you’ll want to be in Surfers Paradise. Surfers Paradise accommodation is available in a range of options. You can opt for a glitzy hotel, a B&B or a corner store motel if you can find one, but the best deal you’ll get is from a serviced apartment. That sounds expensive right? Wrong! Surfers Paradise apartments are usually cost-effective and value for money, given that they are more spacious, have greater privacy and usually extend beyond one room. And there are hundreds of them – all conveniently placed near the beach and the nearby attractions.
The warm sunny weather – the slogan for Tourism Queensland was right – Queensland is ‘beautiful one day’ and ‘perfect the next’. The subtropical state of Queensland receives a staggering 287 days of sunshine annually.
The bustling nightlife – if you are a night owl, the bright lights of Surfer Paradise is the place for you. After dark fun includes dinner at fantastic restaurants and eateries and drinks at some of the hippest and happening clubs in the country,
Events galore – the Asia Pacific Masters Games, the Australian Surf Life Saving Championships, Indy 300, and the Magic Millions Horse Racing Carnival.
And if you still have some free time on your agenda, make sure you climb to the ‘Skypoint’ at Q1. Skypoint is located on level 77 and 78 of the iconic Q1 Resort in Surfers Paradise, which is the 2. Taking you to the highest point above the Gold Coast, Skypoint allows you to experience spectacular 360 degree views of the beach right to the Hinterland and beyond.
