When it comes to family holidays it’s very hard to beat Queensland’s Gold Coast. In fact, it’s been one of the most iconic seaside vacation spots since the 1950s. From building sand castles to scoffing fish and chips on the beach, it offers an old-fashioned charm that’s sometimes hard to find these days. Yet, at the same time, it has enough sophistication to keep Mum and Dad entertained, too.
When you book Gold Coast holiday rentals, you’re opening the door to a whole lot of family fun with an endless choice of beaches, parks, kid-friendly eateries, theme parks and so much more.
When it comes to Gold Coast beaches most people think of amazing surf breaks. The picturesque coastline certainly has more than its fair share of top breaks, but it also has some of the safest family beaches in Australia. One of the main reasons Broadbeach apartments are so popular is because they give instant access to the gorgeous patrolled Kurrawa Beach.
With its soft sand, gentle waves and azure water, it’s a true paradise and all within walking distance of your apartment. Even better, there’s Kurrawa Park, too, a lush leafy space that’s perfect for playing, lazing and picnics.
Broadbeach apartments also provide the perfect base from which to visit the many world-famous theme parks. There’s something for every age and with some great ticket deals available, quite affordable, too.
Gold Coast Holiday Rentals
For adventure of a different kind, there’s an endless choice and again, Gold Coast holiday rentals make the ideal base. Head away from the beach towards the Hinterland and you’ll discover ancient rainforests, tumbling waterfalls and exciting mountain hikes. A must is O’Reilly’s Tree Top Walk in Lamington National Park, 180 metres of boardwalk suspended 15 metres above the ground in the tree canopy.
For active kids (and Mums and Dads) there’s an endless supply of fun; hire bikes, go horse-riding, book a surf lesson, it’s all there waiting for you. For the water-babies, there are boats and kayaks to hire, jet boat rides to enjoy, deep sea fishing and scuba diving, depending on the age of your child.
What kid doesn’t love animals? There are some great animal activities on the Gold Coast, including Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary. The ultimate holiday activity for all the family, you can get up close and personal with koalas, kangaroos, exotic birds and reptiles, even Tasmanian devils. There are shows to enjoy, possum encounters, dingo walks and even a Wild Adventures School Holiday Program.
Perfect Seaside Holidays
After all that activity there’ll be some hungry tummies to fill and you’ll find plenty of options within walking distance of Broadbeach apartments. And when you’re done, it’s time to relax in your apartment or take advantage of the resort facilities. Resorts such as the Phoenician are just metres from the beach and offer amazing facilities, including indoor and outdoor pools, sauna, spa, gym, games room and more.
Without a doubt, Gold Coast holiday rentals are just perfect for family vacations. There’s something for all ages, including Mum and Dad, and you’ll never run out of things to do.
