Take a holiday on Australia’s Green and Gold Coast

Sadly, much of the news coming out of Queensland these days is all about the record floods being experienced in the central and northern parts of the state. It is important to realise that these floods have not affected Southeast Queensland and after the spring and early summer rains, Queensland’s Gold Coast is looking decidedly lush and green.

With the Aussie dollar at record highs, international tourism to the Gold Coast has taken a hit; this means there is an abundance of reasonably priced accommodation available for Australians to snap up and enjoy a bargain holiday.

Many people prefer the southern area of Gold Coast for their family getaway. While only a short drive from the bright lights of Surfers Paradise, this part of the coast is less crowded than the northern areas yet has plenty of attractions of its own. The surfside suburb of Palm Beach is a favourite destination for many holidaymakers. Tucked in between Burleigh Heads (becoming known as the “Bondi Beach of the Gold Coast”) and Currumbin – famous for its wildlife sanctuary, Palm Beach offers a nine kilometre unbroken ribbon of perfect white sand with safe patrolled beach areas for swimmers and point breaks at each end for those wanting to catch the surf.

The Currumbin Wild Life Sanctuary, owned by the National Trust of Queensland is right on your doorstep. Established in 1947 as a home for Australian native wildlife, it has established its place as an outstanding leader in the preservation and display of Australia’s national heritage. As a not-for-profit organisation, all revenue is used to further develop this native park as a world-class facility.

The Gold Coast also has five major theme parks which are especially popular with young and old alike. Dreamworld, Movie World, SeaWorld, Wet and Wild and White Water World offer all-weather fun for the entire family. Summer passes offering unlimited entry to multiple attractions start from $69 so you can enjoy more than one day out without breaking your bank.

When you not out on the town, you want a comfortable place in which to relax and enjoy your holiday. The Gold Coast has an abundance of holiday rental accommodation available with luxury fully furnished apartments available from a low of $150 a night and sleeping six or eight people comfortably. Beachside resorts such as Palm Springs Residences have absolute beach frontage, barbecue and entertainment facilities within its landscaped gardens and year-round swimming in the huge outdoor pool that is heated in the cooler weather. Shops, restaurants and parks are all within walking distance of this four-star residential complex.

So the message is clear: more than ever, Australia’s Gold Coast is open for business and now is the ideal time to snap up some bargain deals for your perfect late summer or autumn getaway. What are you waiting for? Jump online now and check out what is available before the bargains are all snapped up.
