The Gold Coast isn't all about the neon lights of Surfers Paradise and Broadbeach. Try venturing further south to discover the beautiful scenery and laid-back vibe of Tweed Heads, Coolangatta, Tugun and Currumbin. You'll also find plenty of great surf spots in these parts and plenty of nice, relaxed places to eat and drink. Alternatively, travel inland to Mount Tamborine for some incredible walking trails, lush mountain scenery and a plethora of fine wineries, breweries, cafés and art galleries.
If you're traveling as a family, of course no Gold Coast vacation is complete without a trip to one or more of the theme parks. All of the 'big four' parks – Dreamworld, Movie World, Sea World and Wet'n'Wild – are world-class theme parks in their own right and each requires a whole day to experience properly. For something a little more light hearted, visit the Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary or enjoy a night out at the Australian Outback Spectacular.
Fancy learning to surf while down the coast? There are numerous surf schools on the Gold Coast, spread out all the way along the coast from Main Beach right down to Coolangatta. You can also try your hand at wakeboarding or kitesurfing at several places around the region if you're feeling a little more adventurous.
