Title: Must-See Tourist Attractions on the Gold Coast

Must-See Tourist Attractions on the Gold Coast
  • The Gold Coast is a hub of exciting
    entertainment, sunny beaches, stunning wildlife
    and fun attractions. Basically, theres plenty to
    do and see here, which makes it one of
    Australias most popular holiday spots. However,
    some Gold Coast tourist attractions are simply
    more exciting than others. Below are four of the
    hottest tourist attractions in good ole Goldy.

Soak Up Some Sun at the Beach
  • Australias Gold Coast is famous for its
    beaches. In fact, Goldy has 57 kilometres of
    these beautiful, sandy attractions. Some of the
    most famous and attractive beaches include,
    Burleigh Heads, Currumbin, Broadbeach, Duranbah,
    Palm Beach, Kirra, Coolangatta, Nobby Beach,
    Surfers Paradise and Main Beach. Theyre a source
    of pride for Gold Coasters and a source of awe
    for tourists.

  • The beaches are clean, feature convenient
    walking trails along the coast line, are close to
    restaurants and cafés, offer barbecue and picnic
    areas, are home to interesting wildlife and have
    some of the best surfing spots on the planet.
    Theyre perhaps the greatest attractions on the
    Gold Coast and certainly the best spot to relax
    while on holiday.

Take in the View atop the Q1 Building
  • The Q1 Building in Surfers Paradise is the
    most iconic building on the Gold Coast. And, the
    most iconic part of Q1 is the SkyPoint
    Observation Deck on the 77th or top floor. The
    deck offers 360-degree views of the entire
    coastline, as well as views of Hinterland, the
    ocean and the Surfers Paradise skyline.

  • Not to mention, theres a restaurant/bar on
    the deck, so you can have dinner with an
    unbelievable view.
  • If youre feeling a bit more adventurous, then
    you might try the SkyPoint Climb. On the climb,
    youll be strapped into a harness and given a
    different view of Surfers Paradise, going up and
    down the glass structure with a tour guide.

Play with the Animals at Currumbin Wildlife
  • Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary is one of the
    oldest and most beloved attractions on the Gold
    Coast. It offers some of the most exotic wildlife
    in Australia and is a time capsule for indigenous
    culture and heritage. Not to mention, home of the
    best wildlife hospital in the country.

  • The sanctuary features open wildlife
    enclosures and interactive displays all in the
    middle of a rainforest lined with eucalyptus
    trees. Its family-friendly, and you and the
    family can take a trip around the park in a
    little train, go on a Segway Safari, learn about
    the native culture during the Aboriginal Dance
    Show, get a lesson from Dr. Doo-Lots, take the
    Treetop Challenge or simply play with the animals.

  • You can cuddle the koalas, hand feed the
    kangaroos, take a picture with the animals, watch
    the Birds Flight or Crocodile Behaviour Show or
    wave to the emus and wombats. Theres surely a
    wide array of Wildlife Shows Events to choose
    from at Currumbin.

Do Some Whale Watching
  • The Gold Coast is one of the best whale
    watching destinations in Australia. From May to
    November the whales make their yearly migratory
    trip and swim from the east in search of warmer
    waters. The Gold Coast happens to be the perfect
    spot, as the Coast sees 300 days of sun each
    year, and more than 10,000 whales pass through
    during the 5-month migration season.

  • A whale watching trip is simple you choose an
    operator, book a trip, then take a boat out to
    one of the watching locations, including the
    infamous Great Barrier Reef. Operators offer
    several trip packages and some even come with
    money-back guarantees in case you dont see any
