Gold Coast’s Best Family Attractions

One of the things you need to avoid when you’re traveling with kids is boredom. As an adult, you might think that the pristine beaches of the Gold Coast should do the trick. It’s not enough, though. No matter how pretty the beaches are in this part of the world, you still need to make each day of your trip an adventure. There’s nothing to worry about because the Gold Coast offers a lot of attractions which both you and your kids can enjoy.

If you’re staying in one of the hotels and resorts along the coastal areas, you might want to check out the Wiggles World in Dreamworld, Australia. Is your child a fan of Nickelodeon? Then he’ll definitely love the Pipeline Plunge in this theme park. There’s also the Wedgie, one of the newest water slides in the Whitewater World, which has been making waves since it opened last April. Splashers are bound to love the Wiggle Bay.
Are you traveling with a 12-year-old who also happens to be a thrill seeker? If that’s the case, the Warner Bros. Movie World is a must-see. Here, you’ll be riding the scariest rollercoaster you’ll ride in your life called the “Superman Escape”. If you’re a fan of the big screen, then you’ll easily recognize how this was inspired by the movie Superman. There are other tinsel town stunt-driven attractions here too, like the Hollywood Stunt Driver. You’ll get to experience Hollywood’s most legendary on-screen car chases here.
Once you’ve had enough of theme parks, perhaps you can take the family out to enjoy the best of the Gold Coast’s wildlife. The Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary offers the best rainforest and natural bushland experiences where you can cuddle koalas, feed lorikeets and kangaroos, watch live snake shows, and take a stroll with free-flying birds casually perching on your shoulder. The kids will also be thrilled to get a glimpse of the aboriginal culture. If you’re up to it, you can sign up for the Extreme Green Challenge, a ropes course from the treetops of Aussie’s rainforest.

If you want to skip the wildlife and go straight to the rainforest adventure, you can also include Adventure Parc in your itinerary. This is perfect for families traveling with restless teenagers. You can have the best three-hour roping activity in this park. They also provide the jumpsuits so all you really need to bring are covered shoes. You’ll be jumping off Aussies tallest treetops and climbing cable ladders in no time. It’s something you’d want to tell you grandkids about. The Adventure Park is located in the Tamborine Mountains.

Are you traveling with younger kids? Adventure Parc’s rope swinging adventure may be too rough for them, but Mt. Tamborine offers another attraction which may be just the right fit. Drive up to North Tamborine and sign up in a Mt. Tamborine Glowworm Cave Tour. If anything amazes kids more than their game consoles, it’s an array of glowing bugs.

You’ll be shown an educational audiovisual presentation about glow worms too before you trek down two glowworm-filled tunnels with your child. These tours run daily, with coaches leaving every 30 minutes. To get the best and closes Gold Coast accommodation to your chosen Gold Coast family holiday, look around our website.
