The COVID-19 Pandemic has had a huge impact on local Gold Coast businesses, which rely heavily on visitors from Queensland, interstate and overseas.
During this time, it is hard to keep the website fully up to date with all the changes. In the meantime here are some resources for visitors. Our main booking partners for hotels and for tours, tickets, theme parks and activities are keeping everything up to date, so please use those resources in the meantime.

Looking for the best family beach vacation?
Here's why I think the Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia should be on YOUR holiday destination list!
No matter where in the world I travel, I compare all beaches to this one!
In the summer months, I love the very early mornings. No daylight savings so the sun is up VERY early!
Planning a holiday is EASY when you have been there before & know what you want to see & do.
If you don't have local knowledge, it can be HARD :( That's why I created my Travel Planning Cheat Sheets

Plan Your Gold Coast Holiday NOW
You feel like you've done so much before it's even breakfast time!
And best of all - the beaches are brilliant all year round - no box jelly fish to ruin your enjoyment of the beach and ocean.
As much as I love the beach, the other great thing about the Gold Coast is that there is so much else to see and do here.
And most family activities you can do at any time - what great flexibility for a holiday.
Whilst Gold Coast beaches are mostly free of these marine nasties, that is not the case in northern Queensland. There you need to swim in stinger enclosures and wear stinger suits from October to May - leaving you only a short time of the year when the waters are clear from marine nasties like marine stingers, irukandji and box jellyfish.
All of this and more adds up to one of the world's very best family beach vacation destinations.
That depends upon what you want to do, when you can come, your budget and what kind of weather you'd prefer! Check out my guide to the best time to visit the Gold Coast.
There are so many things that you should consider when choosing where to stay - I recommend you check out my suburb by suburb descriptions to find what suits for your best family beach vacation accommodation.
So many things to do, so little time - take the challenge check out the Gold Coast main attractions and plan your holiday to make the most of it.
