Gold Coast: Family Holiday
With so many attractions, museums and fun activities on offer, even the big kids can get away with being children on a family holiday in the Gold Coast. For fresh air fanatics, Lamington National Park is a must: a historical treasure of the Gold Coast. The park still has remnants of the first widespread subtropical rainforests. Take a scenic walk along one of the many walking tracks that include landmarks such as Mount Marino, Checo Point, Coomera Gorge, Elebana Falls and Picnic Rock. Kiki and Birdlife Park is also highly recommended, visitors can enjoy eight acres of magnificent native bush, which is home to the nocturnal world of the Kiwi, who makes its home amongst the lush tree ferns. Take a stroll along one of the trails to view any one of the many aviaries set along peaceful flowing streams. Children and adults will enjoy a day at this park.
A family holiday to the Gold Coast would not be complete without a visit to one of the region’s many fantastic theme parks; Dreamworld has rollercoasters galore for thrill seeking families, while Warner Brothers Movie World and Sea World are also on hand for families looking for more laid back entertainment.
The Gold Coast is also a great place for a family beachside fun in the sun. Located in northern New South Wales Cabarita Beach, Kingscliff and Fingal's beach offer visitors white soft sandy beaches, many adrenaline-rush activities and is perfect for kids and adults alike. Cabarita's Greenback Taylor Fishing Competition also attracts large crowds of visitors and is a popular spot to enjoy a picnic with the family. The Gold Coast is geared for tourism, so there are many types of holiday accommodation available for a stress-free family holiday. Food is plentiful and very varied in Canberra with many restaurants, cafes and ice cream bars scattered around the city. Overall, a family break to the Gold Coast makes for a great holiday, and one that your family will never forget.
