    Find Peace in Sanctuary Cove

    Sanctuary Cove. Even the name summons up thoughts of a wonderfully relaxed place, is just less than an hour from Brisbane. It lies just twenty minutes away from Surfers Paradise with all the frenetic activity of sun worshippers and surfers and provides a holiday haven for those who want to have fun but without the noise!

    Next to Sanctuary Cove is Hope Island, an up-market gated community with an eighteen-hole golf course, designed by a British Open champion, as its centre piece. The Island has less than six thousand permanent residents and this gives it a real village like atmosphere.

    Accommodation throughout the whole area consists of luxury serviced apartments, holiday villas or holiday homes and a whole range of other accommodation to suit any budget.

    Things to See and Do in Sanctuary Cove

    It is not really the things to do that make Sanctuary Cove so attractive. Rather, it is the proximity to all the excitement of theme parks and National Parks which means that holiday makers can find accommodation here and have fun somewhere else. Indeed, for holiday makers that wants the best of both worlds, hiring holiday villas or self-contained apartments in Sanctuary Cove means that the family can make their own fun on the waterways and beaches until they are up to something a little more active.

    For the weary traveller, try out a day at the Sanctuary Day Spa where the attendants will loosen up all those knots and aching muscles to get you ready for something energetic. Many people hold tension in their necks and shoulders without realizing it so a day here will certainly have beneficial effects for the whole family.

    Theme Parks are all along the Gold Coast by the dozen. Water World, Dreamworld (which has thirteen ‘worlds’ within its borders) are only ten minutes or so away by car. Travellers can buy up multi park tickets on the internet to jump the queues when they get there.

    Wet ‘n’ Wild is where the kids and adults alike can let go of their inhibitions and fling themselves about a bit to get rid of any excess energy. Coming down off this mega dose of fun, try out the Australia Zoo or take an excursion in the hinterland to see what Australia is really all about.

    Of course, no one comes to this end of the world without trying out a boat trip on the ocean and, if this in the ‘cooler’ months of June to November, whale spotting is high up on the list of things to do. Swimming with the dolphins is also highly sought after and there are plenty of opportunities to do this as well. In fact, there is so much to do here that it will take more than one visit to get to all the attractions!

    Look out for cultural shows too to witness some great dancing and ethnic extravaganzas. Most people know about the Aborigines but few know what their culture is all about. Everyone must know about the infamous penal colonies on the shores of Australia and researching this history is also a great way to see how Australia developed into the great country it is today.

    To get a real feel for any of these places around Sanctuary Cove, try staying a few nights in a rented villa or in serviced apartments to save on travelling times.

    Getting to Sanctuary Cove

    As one would expect, major airlines are flocking to Brisbane and the Gold Coast International Airport from the UK. The reduction in airfares over the years makes this a very affordable holiday destination even for complete families. Transfers can be booked in advance and this should make the trip much easier all round.

    Accommodation in all levels of expenditure too, from backpackers and caravan parks to holiday houses means that even those with tight budgets can find their own comfort levels.

    One cool trick is to book everything in advance to allow holiday makers to just concentrate on amassing ‘spending money’ and usually allows for easier budgeting for the kids treats etc. Luxury shopping is a must-do here too so save something to bring home an exceptional keepsake of an unforgettable experience.

    Climate in Sanctuary Cove

    The climate in the area surrounding Sanctuary Cove is exceptional and usually produces three hundred sun filled days per year. If it is whale watching that is a must, then go between June and November when they make their way past the coastline to the annual mating grounds. Accommodation in caravan parks and camp sites is still very comfortable even through the cooler months so students and camping aficionados will be made very welcome.
