Burleigh Head National Park

Your adventurous friends won’t be disappointed with an afternoon spent exploring Burleigh Head National Park – a subtropical rainforest park next to Burleigh Beach that offers casual bushwalking trails, lush flora and wildlife to see and more than a few breathtaking lookout spots.

Put on some comfortable shoes and pack a picnic for your visit, where you can either take the beaten path or explore with freedom. Whichever you do, reach the rocky cliffs for a 180-degree view of the Pacific Ocean.

SkyPoint Climb

If you’re travelling with thrill-seekers, SkyPoint Climb in Surfers Paradise is an open-air climb on the top of the famous Q1 building that is second-to-none when it comes to sightseeing. Officially the highest point on the Gold Coast, this outdoor structure boasts a birds-eye-view over Surfers Paradise and a 360-degree vista across the region – an experience not to forget.

Choose between day or night climbs, with sunrise, sunset and dinner packages also available.

Slingshot and Vomatron Surfers Paradise

If SkyPoint Climb leaves you and your group wanting more, put your bravery to the test for a second time at Sling Shot Fun Park. Situated in Surfers Paradise, just a few minutes from our Main Beach Gold Coast holiday rentals via car or Glink, Sling Shot Gold Coast offers a high-octane experience like no other on its two rides, the Slingshot and Vomatron, which are not for the fainthearted.

Both attractions boast high speed, high altitude and rapid acceleration, with an audacious challenge of taking on both one after the other!

Go Ride a Wave

Get surfing on the Gold Coast with Go Ride a Wave, offering affordable group surfing sessions for both experienced surfers and first-timers in various prime surfing destinations that include Surfers Paradise Beach, Kurrawa Beach Broadbeach and Kirra Beach.

In a group, there isn’t a more exciting way to spend an afternoon on the beach, where Go Ride a Wave’s pro surfing gurus will provide all the basics to get going, in addition to a few new skills and tricks for casual and semi-experienced surfers.

Dracula’s Cabaret Gold Coast

For groups looking to experience live entertainment and nightlife on the Gold Coast, Dracula’s Cabaret in Broadbeach is the complete package – an attraction and live entertainment venue in one that delivers an unforgettable evening of horror-themed cabaret, burlesque, music and comedy.

Starring world-class performers, eye-catching costumes and a thrilling atmosphere each night, Draculas Gold Coast is a live revue with something for all, complete with flowing bar drinks and a filing three-course dinner.

If those aren’t enough, find more to shop at Oasis Broadbeach, Chevron Renaissance and Marina Mirage.
