What have you got planned for summer 2021? Summer is coming and the best way to beat the heat is by heading to the Gold Coast!
With surf, sand, water parks, outdoor water activities and more, the Gold Coast is the ideal place to be when the soaring temperatures arrive.
Not only that, but the summer school holiday is also just around the corner - the perfect excuse to treat your family to a beach getaway, enjoying world-class attractions and more.
Round up the kids and pack your beachwear. Here are 5 things to do on the Gold Coast this summer!
Surf Gold Coast
No holiday on the Gold Coast is complete without surfing. And if you’re a beginner, the Gold Coast is the best place to learn.
Gold Coast surf schools, like Get Wet Surf Main Beach, offer group sessions and one-to-one sessions for beginners and casual surfers. The Spit, where they are based, is also a fantastic location to learn.
Kayaking Gold Coast
Surfing, not your thing? How about kayaking or paddleboarding?
Kayaks and paddleboards can be hired locally (try Seaway Kayaking Tours, which also offer snorkelling!), with many great locations to get paddling.
SUP on Main Beach while enjoying the views of Surfers Paradise, or go on a kayaking adventure to Wave Break Island. Both are sure to keep you cool this summer.
Jet-Skiing Gold Coast
For those who prefer something a little more exciting, go jet-skiing! Operators such as Jet Ski Safaris and Gold Coast Watersports offer jet-ski hire with no licenses required, so you and your family can hit the water in no time (kids are allowed if riding with an adult).
Skim the ocean waters of Main Beach and Surfers Paradise, explore the waterways or zip around the beautiful Gold Coast Broadwater.
Wet’n’Wild Gold Coast
Looking for a full day of water-splashing fun? The kids will love Wet’n’Wild Gold Coast Water Park.
A 15-minute drive from Main Beach Gold Coast, Wet n Wild Water Park boasts water rides, water slides, wave pools, playground precincts and more for kids (and adults) of all ages.
For families, there isn’t a better way to spend a hot day on the Gold Coast!
GC Aqua Park
GC Aqua Park, situated on the Gold Coast Broadwater, is an inflatable water park that opens seasonally.
If you like a challenge - with a few laugh-out-loud moments - this aqua park offers a variety of obstacles, trampoline jumps, slides and more for adults and children aged 10 and over.
