Day 1: Explore resort & beach

On your first day of arrival on the Gold Coast, you may want to settle in and get to know the resort that you are staying in.

Here are some highlights of some of our most popular resorts:

Chevron Renaissance – sandy lagoon beaches on level 6

Sun City Gold Coast – mean water slides

Crown Towers – pirate ship and sandy beaches

Soul Surfers Paradise – outdoor pool with beachfront views

H Residences above Hilton Surfers Paradise – poolside bar

Day 2: Theme parks

A good idea, especially to get ahold on the excitement of the little ones, is to reserve a full day to go to the famous Gold Coast theme parks such as DreamworldSea World, Movie World or Wet ‘n’ Wild. It’s a guaranteed day of fun for the whole family on the second day of your Gold Coast itinerary.

A great advantage of staying in Surfers Paradise and Holiday Holiday’s Broadbeach accommodation is the fact that your accommodation is conveniently located near Gold Coast theme parks. Sea World is located around 5 – 10 minutes drive from Holiday Holiday’s Gold Coast accommodation, whereas Dreamworld, Movie World and Wet ‘n Wild are located around 25 – 30 minutes drive away.
