A trip to Queensland should be full of fun, excitement, and adventure and the best things to do on the Gold Coast are all this and more! Discover the greatest Gold Coast activities and make the most of your holiday.
Gold Coast Amusement Parks
Some of the most popular attractions on the Gold Coast are the amusement parks. There are several of them, and each is unique. There’s Warner Bros. Movie World, with rides and rollercoasters inspired by the Warner Bros. movies. There’s also Sea World, with water rides and live animal performances. Wet’n’Wild is a water park with plenty of water slides and rides. WhiteWater World has the same kind of attractions, and Dreamworld has thrill rides and kids’ rides to suit everyone’s tastes. The amusement parks are the best things to do on the Gold Coast if you seek adventure on your holidays.
In Miami on the Gold Coast is the Miami Marketta, home to street food from all over the world. Enjoy food from Greece, Japan, Mexican, France, Italy, and more. There’s also frequent entertainment available. Enjoy national and international musical and comedic acts.
SkyPoint in the Q1 Building
The Q1 is a sheer structure that stands out amongst the Gold Coast skyline. It’s 230 metres tall, and on level 77 is the SkyPoint Observation Deck, the best place to take in 360° views of the Gold Coast city, hinterlands, and sea. Enjoy a meal on the deck for delicious food and drinks while you try spotting whales in the water. Add excitement to the activity and climb to the top of the tower. Feel the wind on your face as you stare out over the ocean.
ArtVo Illusions Gallery
ArtVo is an art gallery like no other, it’s Australia’s first immersive, ‘trick-art’ gallery. You won’t find traditional art pieces here, but instead, you’ll find mind-bending illusion artworks. A gallery is an interactive event and most of the artworks are designed for you to take photos with them. The right angle and the right pose can transform a normal photo of you at a gallery into one where it looks like you’re flying on a giant paper plane! The gallery is a fun (wheelchair-accessible) activity for the whole family.
The Gold Coast Nightlife
A night out isn’t something that every visitor to the Gold Coast is seeking, but for those that enjoy getting to know the nightlife of a city, there’s plenty to know in the Gold Coast. Perhaps you love a rooftop bar overlooking the ocean, or maybe a hole in the wall that’s a little quiet and out of the way. Plan a bar crawl, join an organised bar crawl, or just wander through the city and find the bars that interest you.
