Look beyond Surfers Paradise and the Theme Parks.
- Burleigh Pavillion
With multiple venues in the one place and stunning spot to spend the day, or the sunset, the Burleigh Pav http://www.burleighpavilion.com/ is one of the Gold Coast’s hottest venues.
- Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary
A more low-key experience than visiting the theme parks but miles more interesting with local and exotic wildlife, make sure you check the schedule to attend the live events during the day – and don’t miss feeding time!
- Home of the Arts (HOTA) – The Exhibitionist Bar
On top of the Gold Coast’s newest cultural space is a stunning rooftop bar.
- Visit the Hinterland
Check out Mt Tamborine and surrounds for local breweries, wineries, producers, waterfalls and treetop walks.
- Head down to Byron Bay
Less than an hour from the Gold Coast airport is the hippy surf town turned instagram celebrity haven, head there for a day trip or for a few days and see what’s attracted celebrities and the wealthy to this coastal haven.
