Activities and Sightseeing in the Gold Coast

The Gold Coast is a hotbed of activity so visitors will never be stuck for something to do. Escape Travel share its top ten suggestions for what to do whilst in the Gold Coast…

  1. White Water World, a waterpark home to some elaborate rides, including the Blue Ringed Octopus. Perfect for thrillseekers, it’s also conveniently close to the second attraction, Dreamworld.
  2. Dreamworld is another theme park, full of rides such as the Giant Drop, the Wipeout and the Tower of Terror.
  3. Sea World is home to polar bears, penguins and dolphins. Tiger sharks swim in Shark Bay, which is the largest artificial shark lagoon in the world.
  4. Tamborine National Park is a blend of natural beauty and other visitor attractions such as art galleries, restaurants and wineries.
  5. For a movie theme park without the trip to the US, visit Warner Bros. Movie World.
  6. Wet ‘n’ Wild Water World is the place to go to experience the Surfrider, where you can imagine you’re riding giant waves without the years of practice.
  7. Paradise Country is an Australian farm park with opportunities to meet animals such as koalas and kangaroos.
  8. Enjoy daily animal shows and dancing at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary.
  9. Hit the boardwalk trail at David Fleay Wildlife Park and take a peek at a platypus inside a special nocturnal viewing house.
  10. Finally, Springbrook National Park is a day’s adventure in itself. Waterfalls, wildlife and winding roads are just three of the attractions of this World Heritage listed site.
