The Gold Coast is known for its sun, surf and perfect white sands. Visitors flock from around the globe to surf the “GC’s” famous breaks, take wild rides at its renowned theme parks and bust a move on its packed dance floors. Whether you’re here for business or with your family, Broadbeach provides the ideal base to experience it all. If you haven’t visited the city before (or even if you have), don’t miss Sea World to meet penguins and dolphins face to face, Dreamworld for movie fun and Wet’n’Wild for extreme water sliding. Try your hand at kayaking, windsurfing or stand up paddle boarding at the local beaches, then fuel up on coffee at a laid back beach café. Hire a bike and curve along the coastline, then head out of the city to cuddle koalas and unwind under waterfalls. Finally, relax with an ice-cold drink in front of the ocean as the sun sets and the city starts up for another night of lights, music and entertainment.
