The gold coast in Australia has many wonders to be explored if you are planning on vacationing here. To know why you should travel to the gold coast, read on!


Thrilling activities

Regardless of what kind of traveller you are, or how old you are, the gold coast will have something to do for you. Walk into the Movie World and meet your favourite cartoon characters, have fun splashing about at the wet 'n' wild or sea world and get your adrenaline pumping in the crazy rides at Dreamworld. There are so many options to choose from!


The Currumbin wildlife sanctuary

The Currumbin wildlife sanctuary is one of the most loved attractions on this coast. A haven for animal lovers, the place is home to a wide and amazing range of cute creatures from Australia and around the globe. Play with a koala, stroll about with some dingos, gain some knowledge about bird training and help crocodiles have a mighty lunch!


Hit the beaches

The main attraction in this part of Australia is obviously the beaches. There are quite a few beaches you can choose from regardless of what activity you want to partake in, be it roaming or just lazing around on the golden sands of the gold coast you have a variety of places to choose from and have fun while in this part of the country. Not everyone wants an adventure activity on a beach, some just want to relax by the waves and read a book by taking advantage of an Avani Broadbeach advance purchase deal at a stay located close to the beach like the Avani Broadbeach Gold Coast Residences, and chill in style.


Go up and above!

In most of the major cities in Australia, iconic huge buildings seem to be something common. Similarly, the gold coast has its own q1 building at the height of 1058 feet. This huge skyscraper was the world's biggest residential building until Dubai stole the limelight in the year 2009. This building has 78 floors in total excluding the basement floors. The 77th floor is where you must go to if you want to get some amazing views of the city. The observation deck in this building offers a 360゚ view of the best sites the city has to show. You can look at the bright blue ocean, the green gardens and the golden beaches that the city is named after right from this observation deck. This deck also has a number of restaurants and bars that you can go and hang out at after a tiring day of touring the city. If you want to add some thrill to your day out you can also check out the sky point climb activity that lets you hang from this height for a small fee.


Explore hinterland

Everything on the gold coast is not actually golden in colour. About an hour from the city centre you will find yourself in between a lot of green. This is hinterland, the most popular tourist destination in the area and you will also see that people from Queensland visit this place. Known for having rich and biodiverse wildlife and plants within it, one can trek, walk and bird watch within this space of greenery.
