Hit the beach

Well isn’t that the whole reason you came? Steer clear of the crowded strip by Surfer’s Paradise and instead head south for the wide open beaches in Nobbys, Burleigh or Currumbin. Alternatively, seek out the tranquil, wave-free waters of The Spit.

Explore the Hinterlands

If you get tired of the beach, the non-coastal areas of the Gold Coast are just as enticing. Head inland for the wineries and cheese sampling of Mount Tambourine, or go chasing waterfalls in Springbrook or Lamington National Parks.

Miami Marketta

A permanent outdoor market filled with a roster of international street-food stalls, Miami Marketta is a gourmand’s dream, with cocktails and live music to enjoy under the fairy lights when you can’t fit in another bite.
