Families certainly won't struggle to find ways to have fun with the choice of cheap tickets and events. There's something for everyone, whether you want a relaxed day exploring the local wildlife or seek some adrenaline-pumping action. These are just a few suggestions for stuff to do on the Gold Coast together:

  • Whale Watching – take a trip around the crystal blue waters along the coast and look out for whales and dolphins. SEA the Gold Coast frequently offers discount tickets for this unique experience.
  • Ripley's Believe It or Not – soak up the magic and mystery at this quirky interactive museum in Surfer's Paradise, which is popular and suitable for all ages – big kids especially.
  • Buggy Adventure – for families with older children, a 4WD buggy experience should tick all the boxes and get the adrenaline pumping.

What can I do with my toddler?

If you're on the Gold Coast with a toddler in tow, there's lots to keep the little one(s) occupied. Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary has live bird shows and cuddly koalas, while Currumbin Rock Pools is a lovely spot for little toes to paddle in. Broadwater Parklands is a family friendly park, with safe play areas, picnic spots and free BBQ facilities (though you'll have to bring your own burgers). Best of all, it has a bouncy pillow – perfect for tiring energetic toddlers out.

What types of activities can I do indoors?

When the sun's not out (rare on the Gold Coast, with its 300 days of annual sunshine), don't worry – there's still lots to do indoors. Some of the best tickets and events are inside and may even catch your eye on a sunny day.

Gamers will love Intencity, which is a large arcade showcasing a combination of classic and brand-new video games. Dracula's is one of the most famous entertainment venues on the entire Gold Coast too – part restaurant, part theatre and part house of horrors. It's superb fun and ideal for adults in the evenings but a brilliant party zone for kids during the day. Whatever the weather, none of your family will be complaining of boredom here.
