Gold Coast Deals, Packages and Specials

Top Gold Coast Deals For Theme Parks

Theme parks are such a popular choice for things to do on the Gold Coast and there are quite a few different options for tickets, passes and combination packages.

The main place on this website for suggestions about theme park entry options is Theme Park Passes Explained - there you will find a selection of the main options including suggestions for best use and how to combine and save.

If you are just interested in one or two of the theme parks, you can check out their tickets and passes by following these links.

Some of the deals on these pages are exclusive and cannot be purchased at the theme park gates, others are cheaper online than at the theme parks.

It certainly pays to purchase online before your visit.

Most of the theme parks accept mobile vouchers, be sure to double check otherwise you will need to print out your vouchers and present at the gates on your first visit for fast entry.

Booking online, you will often save money rather than paying higher prices at the gate and there are no credit card fees or booking fees.

Note: If you purchase directly from the theme park websites they will charge you booking fees and credit card fees on top of the price of the tickets and passes.

Top Gold Coast Deals For Whale Watching

During the whale watching season (June through to end of October), I highly recommend including this activity on your holiday bucket list.

Choosing which whale watching deal you will take could be simply done by which has the biggest boat, which is closest to where I am staying or it could be the one that offers the best "package deal" with other activities.

The packages usually provide the best deals, but there are sometimes early season or late season specials to take advantage and make big savings.

Be sure to check out whale watching cruises and options and upcoming holidays deals for the latest information and packages.

Top Gold Coast Family Deals

The Gold Coast is very much a family holiday destination and to reflect that, there are some packages which have even bigger discounts for families.

The first thing to say is that Family Deals are usually for 2 Adults + 2 Children (2A + 2Ch) families. Sometimes there are 2 Adult + 3 Children (2A + 3Ch) deals, but they are not very common.

The second point is that the age range for children is not fixed. Sometimes it can be free for children under 3 years, with children's pricing from 3 to 13 years. Other activities or attractions may have children's pricing from 0 to 15 years. So, it is important to work out whether the family deals will cover your family or not.

There are a range of family friendly deals including:

Top Gold Coast Deals For Hotels & Accommodation

I have some favourite ways to find the best deals for hotels in the Gold Coast. I don't think you can beat Booking.com as long as you know where you want to look and know how to use it well. There are tricks to everything!

One of the big issues I have with many of the main travel accommodation sites, is that the listings aren't always located where they are tagged. So be sure to double check.

Surfers Paradise is the most popular option, be sure to check where the accommodation you are looking for is on the map, to see where it is close to. Use the search box to search for Surfers Paradise or Gold Coast hotel deals and when you get to the results use the Map View to help you select.

As well as this suggestion, I have a few other accommodation tips and there are some other tools for finding great deals on the on the Gold Coast Accommodation Deals page.

As a family destination, the Gold Coast does not have a large selection of family resorts but there are a few options that offer kids clubs and inhouse entertainment and facilities.

Here are some other resources for finding the best options for places to stay in the Gold Coast:



Top Gold Coast Deals For Transport

Transport is a complicated area. For some a transport deal might be cheap parking or low cost hire car rental. For others it could be how to get the most out of the public transport system.

For those who don't want to use public transport nor hire a car, then the best deals are to be had by combining return shuttle transfers from the airport to hotels with attraction transfers.

Rather than go through all the options here, there's plenty of information over at attraction transfers.
