Top 05 Free Things to Do in Gold Coast – Sun Sand and Surf on a Budget

The Gold Coast is where one enjoys a million awesome adventures. A land of eternal sunshine and loads of beach vibes. But what if you are on a tight budget, how easy is it to enjoy a holiday on Australia's golden grounds? Read on to discover the best free things to do in Gold Coast.


You Can Look Forward To A Mesmerising Sunrise And Sunset

One of the most perfect Gold Coast mornings is one where you start the day watching the sunrise over the horizon. The magical spectacle guarantees to uplift your spirits and set the mood right for the rest of the day, which you wind down observing a very romantic sunset. The best place to enjoy these spectacles is Burleigh Point; you will find the spot at the top of a hill reached via a path starting from near the surf club which by the way is a pretty cool spot for enjoying those sunset cocktails.


Join The Lorikeet Feeding Rituals For Free

Head over to the Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, just 16 minutes from Avani Broadbeach Gold Coast Residences and you can be a part of the lorikeet feeding rituals for free. The experience is very rewarding as hundreds of Rainbow Lorikeets, turn up to take a sip of the honey nectar you hold out in a bowl. The birds are not shy and will reward you by settling on your arms, head or shoulders. The up-close experience is one to savour and well worth the memories. The sanctuary which is located quite close to well-located Broadbeach hotels is a nice place to explore for the entire family.


Chill On The Beach

The Gold Coast takes chilling on the beach to a whole new level, boasting 56kms of gorgeous golden sandy banks to enjoy. These beaches are also where you will find some of Australia's best surf points, earning the Gold Coast its nickname of 'surfer's paradise'. But then again the beaches there are not just for the surfers or bathers making the most of the warm ocean, the sandy banks are perfect for chilling, having a BBQ or simply enjoying a long lazy day of snoozing under the golden sunlight. Some of the most popular beaches to enjoy loads of family fun are Broadbeach home to the best hotels in Gold Coast, Currumbin Creek, Rainbow Bay and Greenmount Beach.
