Day Trips to the Gold Coast

When staying at Scarborough Beach Resort you will be ideally located to explore not only the beautiful local area, but it’s also the perfect base for discovering South-East Queensland.

Our location is just a short drive to many great Queensland attractions and destinations, including the fantastic Gold Coast.

So here is the lowdown on what there is to do on the Gold Coast:

Theme Parks

The Gold coast is renowned for its fun-filled family theme parks. You can select from a day pass to the ‘Big Three’: Sea World, Warner Bros Movie World and Wet ‘n’ Wild; or Dreamworld and White Water World; or for a quieter theme park Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary. See Experience Oz for day passes.

Surfers Paradise

Swim or surf on the world famous surf beach at Surfers Paradise, cruise along Surfers Boulevard with great views of the beach, browse Cavill Mall with great shopping and eateries, observe the Gold Coast from high up at Q1 Observation Deck, visit Ripley’s Believe It Or Not! or Infinity Gold Coast tourist attractions, jump aboard a canal cruise and check out some of Surfers Paradise’s waterfront mansions and enjoy the beautiful ambience of this tourist city.

Gold Coast Hinterland

The “Green behind The Gold”, Gold Coast Hinterland features many natural attractions such as Natural Bridge in Numinbah Valley, Springbrook and Lamington National Park bushwalks and waterfalls, Tambourine Mountain wines, food and arts, elevated skywalks at Lamington and Mt Tambourine and the rainforests of O’Reillys and Binna Burra.

Beaches and Estuaries

If you just want to spend a day beach hopping, the Gold Coast has 21 stunning beaches from north to south where you can swim, surf, paddle, fish or dive into. And the good thing is that most of the beaches are patrolled by surf lifesavers and are very safe. Start at Southport Spit in the north and go all the way south to Rainbow Bay Beach at Coolangatta. There is also calm water beaches on offer at Tallebudgera Creek and Currumbin Estuary where you can participate in all kinds of water activities.

The Gold Coast is only 116 Kms from us here at Scarborough so make sure you put a day trip to this area on your itinerary.
