Summer is right around the corner, meaning it’s time to plan a beach escape on the Gold Coast! 

The Gold Coast has all the best ways to beat the heat this summer, from swimming and surfing on the beach to jet-skiing and enjoying its world-class water parks.

To get you excited for the hottest time of the year, here are 5 ways to beat the summer heat on the Gold Coast!

Surf, Kayak and Paddle Board in Main Beach

Sure, swimming is fun. But why not mix it up with surfing, kayaking and paddleboarding on the Gold Coast?

Main Beach Gold Coast is a special Gold Coast destination for the fact that it offers all three. And if it’s your first time surfing and you want to learn from the best, you can’t go wrong with Get Wet Surf School.

Jet-Skiing Gold Coast

Looking for something a little more adrenaline-inducing? Then you’ll want to visit Jet Ski Safaris in Main Beach.

This tour operator offers hassle-free jet-ski hire with no licenses required. Kids can also hop on a jet-ski driven by an adult. Explore the Gold Coast Broadwater, or skim the ocean waters off Main Beach with views of Surfers Paradise!

Wet ’n’ Wild Gold Coast Water Park

On a hot day, nothing beats Wet’n’Wild Water Park. If you’ve got kids, be sure they’ll love it, as this huge water attraction boasts giant wave pools, themed swimming precincts, big and small slides, big and small rides, plus more.

Dreamworld also has its water park (WhiteWater World) which offers hours of water-splashing fun, despite not being as big.

GC Aqua Park Southport

Open seasonally, GC Aqua Park is an inflatable obstacle course that you don’t want to miss this summer!

Beat the heat by taking on small and large obstacles, along with trampoline jumps, slides, climbing nets, balance beams and lots more. It’s open to kids aged 10 and over, situated on the Gold Coast Broadwater waterfront in Southport.

Christmas on the Gold Coast

Experience a white Christmas on the Gold Coast!

Warner Bros Movie World, just 15 minutes drive from Main Beach, is set to host its annual Movie World White Christmas throughout December, where you can spoil your family with fake snow, live entertainment, festive lights, the spectacular White Christmas Parade and more.

And for that “chilly” Christmas feeling, take the kids ice skating at Planet Chill Ice Skating Rink in Surfers Paradise.
