The Gold Coast offers a wealth of activities of all kinds, in the water and on land, making it the perfect holiday and day-trip spot for groups of all sizes. If you’re looking for something to do with your family or friends, book your choice of Gold Coast holiday rentals and get ready to try one of these fun experiences.

Play an Escape-the-Room Game

Try the Escape Hunt Experience in Southport, and you and up to four friends will have the opportunity to solve a mystery and escape a locked room, in an hour or less. With three different locked-room mysteries to choose from, this is a fun experience you can have more than once.

Go Jetboating at the Beach

Jetboating is a classic Gold Coast activity that’s perfect for groups of up to 12-14 people. The exhilaration of speeding through the water, spinning and sliding on the waves, will leave you breathless. The scenery is great too, but keep your eyes open—blink and you’ll miss it!

Here are some Surfers Paradise apartments recommended for group or family stay:

Have A Gold Coast House Party

With the right Gold Coast accommodation, there’s lots of potential for a relaxing home-away-from-home holiday. Take your pick of luxurious Surfers Paradise apartments near the beach, and enjoy long lazy days with your closest friends. Spend evenings at local restaurants, night clubs, and other hotspots for plenty of opportunities to make some great memories.

Go on a Guided Wine Tour

Another classic group activity, a guided wine tour is perfect for adult groups of friends and family members. These all-day tours typically include pickup from your accommodation, along with stops at several local wineries, lunch, and visits to other local artisans depending on the tour. Quench your thirst as you discover some of the Gold Coast’s best wines as you learn all about wine production and tasting from your knowledgeable guide.

Get Spooky at Dracula’s Cabaret

As one of the city’s longest-running attractions, there’s a good chance you’ve heard of Dracula’s Cabaret Restaurant. If you haven’t seen it yet, consider this a wakeup call! Burlesque, singing, dancing, and comedy with a horror-show twist, along with stunning visuals, make this a memorable event.
