Along the Gold Coast there is also an abundance of natural beauty spots too. Lamington National Park is a World Heritage Area, popular for its ancient trees, spectacular views and extensive walking trails. Springbrook National Park is home to an ancient volcano, unique caves and stunning waterfalls – a visit to the parks Natural Bridge is a must.

Alternatively take a trip to one of the many theme parks including Warner Bros. Movie World, Wet’nWild, Sea World and Dream World – popular with thrill seekers due to its Big Eight thrill rides.

The Gold Coast also offers an array of restaurants for its visitors to choose from. If it’s an ocean view you want, you will find it at Bumbles or for something more high-end try the Salt Grill.
