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!
