THINGS TO DO
Experience the new Star Casino! Spend a lazy Sunday outdoors, relaxing with a drink and good company at the popular Garden Kitchen and Bar. The locals are all loving the renewed casino vibe.
Do you like sports? Want to be close to the action for the Commonwealth Games? Metricon Stadium, the host to the Commonwealth Games opening and closing ceremonies and all athletic events, is 10 kilometres away. Next door to this is the Carrara Sports and Leisure Centre, the place to go for Commonwealth Games badminton, weightlifting, wrestling and para power-lifting. The Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre, the place to go for the Commonwealth Games netball and basketball finals, is just 3 kilometres away. The Rugby Sevens will be 10 kms away at Robina Stadium. The Aquatic Centre is 8 kilometres away. All of this is easily accessible with public transport or cheap taxi or Uber ride.
Dreamworld, Movie World, Sea World, Wet 'n' Wild and Paradise Country are all within 20 minutes drive. Public transport and privately-hired mini buses are also options that may suit your needs. Cuddle a koala and feed the lorikeets and learn about Australia's native animals at the Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary.
Did you know that that from May to October, 30,000 humpback whales swim past the Gold Coast on their annual migration to breed in sub-tropical waters? These whales can frequently be viewed from the beach. For an unforgettable experience, you can also witness the majesty of the whale up close by taking a whale watching boat trip. It's well worth it.
Venture south across the border to explore the laid back sleepiness that is northern New South Wales. Kingscliff, Byron Bay, Nimbin and Lennox Head are just a few of the towns well worth a day trip to.
More than 1000 kilometres of bikeways on The Gold Coast link neighbourhoods, parks, beaches and public transport. There is a 36 kilometre "Oceanway'' path extending from the Southport Spit to Coolangatta which is perfect for cycling, walking or just casually admiring the beach views while the kids run from one playground to the next.
The Gold Coast beaches are popular surf and fishing spots. Should you wish to have surf lessons, go on a fishing day trip, or explore the beautiful islands of Moreton Bay, don't hesitate to ask. I've lived here for 40 years and can tell you the best places to see, to eat, to fish and to surf. Nothing is too much trouble. Just ask!
