Planning a holiday to the Gold Coast and looking for family friendly attractions and tours? Good news is that the choices are endless! Deciding what to do is the hardest part. Here’s a list of 5 (awesome) things to do with the Kids on the Gold Coast to get you started:
1) Breakfast with Koalas
What a unique way to start the day! Enjoy a buffet breakfast spread in the koala nursery with informative presentations and the chance to get up close and personal with these iconic Aussie favourites. After you’ve had your fill of yummy breaky items such as bacon, eggs, hash-browns, pastries, fruit and yoghurt, you will then also have the opportunity to have your photo taken cuddling on the koalas! Oh and the fun doesn’t stop there, you also get general admission to Paradise Country. Prices start at just $45 for kids/pensioners and $65 for adults.
2) Tropical Fruit World
Have you ever heard of the ice cream bean, chocolate pudding fruit, or banana bubble gum fruit? No they aren’t from a fictitious kids book – they’re exotic tropical fruits that visitors to Tropical Fruit World can smell, touch and maybe even taste!
Along with over 500 varieties of exotic tropical fruits the venue also boasts great attractions such as Plantation Safari Tractor Rides, Wildlife Boat Cruise, Miniature Train Ride, Putt Putt Golf, Farm Animals and more!
3) Tree Top Challenge at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary
A visit to Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary provides a full day of great sights and things to do with kangaroos and wild lorikeet to feed, free-flight bird shows, Aboriginal performances and more! But for those who like to inject a little adventure into their holiday activities be sure to check out the Tree Top Challenge at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary – with 80 huge challenges including a zipline over the crocodiles!
4) Natural Bridge Glow Worm Tour
Venture into the stunning Gold Coast Hinterland for an evening tour of Springbrook National Park to see the rainforest come to life at night! At the base of a beautiful cascading waterfall you’ll see the amazing glow worm caves, plus there’s the opportunity for star gazing!
5) AquaDuck Tours
Can’t decide on a land or water tour? With AquaDuck Tours you don’t have to! This amphibious vehicle will take you around the streets of the Gold Coast and then straight into the Broadwater! Without even leaving your seat the AquaDuck transforms into a boat. Best of all the kids get to drive the boat and will receive a FREE Captain AquaDuck license certificate.
Of course this list just scratches the surface of things to do on the Gold Coast with kids – there’s our famous beaches, theme parks, shopping, dining, attractions of Surfers Paradise and a whole lot more!
