It may have been sun, surf and sand that first attracted holidaymakers to the Gold Coast in the 1960s and 1970s, but this Queensland gem has even more to offer these days.
It’s that wide range of attractions and activities that make family accommodation on the Gold Coast such a popular choice – and there’s still more to come.
In fact, winning the rights to host the 2018 Commonwealth Games has opened the floodgates, as far as new infrastructure and attractions go.
Multi Million Dollar Improvements
As soon as the Games were announced, the Gold Coast began a multi-million-dollar beautification program, improving roads, pedestrian areas and entertainment precincts. The famous restaurant strip at Broadbeach is just one example.
The Gold Coast has long had theme parks, of course, but now it looks set to offer even more adventures, including Australia’s first astronaut training centre.
But the Spaceflight Academy isn’t the only new attraction. Holoverse at Southport is being billed as a world class holographic entertainment centre.
Perfect For Families And Couples
Whilst still a magical holiday destination for families, the region has grown more sophisticated, and is now equally famous for its Gold Coast luxury accommodation.
With everything from guided hikes through Lamington National Park, to an Indonesian-inspired cooking school and a craft brewery, the Gold Coast is now a favourite choice for city couples seeking a luxury break.
Owned by world surfing champions Mick Fanning and Joel Parkinson, the brewery is the latest addition to the Gold Coast’s growing number of trendy eateries and bars, making it quite the foodies paradise.
Australia’s Best Holiday Destination
Easily accessible and offering fabulous weather all year, the region really does cater for all tastes and ages these days. and deserves its title as one of Australia’s best holiday destinations.
From Gold Coast luxury accommodation to affordable family accommodation, it’s perfect for weekends, or weeks on end. Spend the morning relaxing on the beach, visit an amazing attraction in the afternoon, and there’s still time to enjoy world class dining at night. Just perfect.
