Your Kid-friendly holiday guide to the Gold Coast these Winter Holidays

Mount Tamborine

This is a great day trip for families, with your choice of hinterland hikes from the all-abilities-access Cedar Creek Falls track to the more advanced Witches Falls and Sandy Creek circuits. You can also visit the village where you will find artworks, amazing cafes and boutiques amongst other great offerings. 

Springbrook National Park

Just a few hours inland from the shoreline, Springbrook National Park is one the most marvellous natural wonders in Australia. There’s a spectacular track with a waterfall that goes underground to a glow-worm cave. A great adventure for the entire family. 

The Gold Coast Regional Botanic Gardens

The Gold Coast Regional Botanical Gardens is the perfect spot for all nature and garden lovers. With an impressive rose garden and a wonderful array of flora, it’s a sensory experience like no other. Pack a lovely picnic for an enjoyable treat after a day of exploring. 

Theme Parks

For the adrenaline seekers of the family, the thrill-seeker capital of Australia has the best theme parks on offer. Head to Dreamworld or Movie World for the grandest selection of rides, attractions and carnival food. Enjoy a wholesome experience at Sea World for fantastic rides and animal encounters; or head to Wet’ n Wild if you’re after the best aquatic experience in the country.

The Gold Coast is home to five of the large-scale theme parks and they have all the goods you would hope to expect- grand shows, roller coasters, fairy floss and furry, friendly animals. The trickiest part is choosing which one to visit first.

Gold Coast Wax Museum

The Gold Coast Wax Museum is one of the largest and most extravagant wax museums in the world. It is the largest of its kind in Australia. Take the little ones on a tour and introduce them to all the most popular celebrities, politicians and even members of the royal family. The perfect outing idea for the whole family!
