4 ways to have the best family holiday on the Gold Coast
From water parks to stunning rock pools, here are the best family-friendly activities you can only try on the Gold Coast.
- November 2019
With plenty of sunshine, great beaches and a range of activities to suit all ages, the Gold Coast is the perfect family holiday destination. Here are four must-try experiences that you won’t find anywhere else.
Springbrook National Park
Choose your own adventure in this verdant and mountainous national park. Stroll to the magnificent Goomoolahra Falls, about 40km inland from Burleigh Heads, and wander through the towering and ancient Antarctic Beech trees. Keep an eye out for the rare species that sound like they belong in a children’s fairy tale: the cascade tree frog, sooty owl and tusked frog.

Discover another side to the Gold Coast by hiring the ultimate in multigenerational family fun – a BBQ boat, which seats up to 10 people. Pack some snags and a fishing rod and glide through the safe, calm waters past Seaworld and up to Wave Break Island. No licence is required so even the littlest skippers can have a turn at the helm.

GC Aqua Park
Just over a year old and already a firm favourite for families with kids aged five and over is the inflatable GC Aqua Park in Southport. You’ll be zooming down inflatable slides, leaping onto huge bouncy pillows, catching air on enormous swings and dashing down runways. Zip up your life vest and get ready to make a splash.

Currumbin Rock Pools
This is what idyllic childhoods are made of: scrambling over smooth, warm rocks, swinging on a rope and landing in the cool, clear water of the Currumbin Rock Pools. Kids and adults love slipping down the natural waterslides and exploring the picturesque waterholes.
