Beautiful clean beaches with white sand. Crystal clean water to swim in. See the dolphins, and if the time of year is right, you will see whales (which we did).

I loved SeaWorld last time but it seems to be more and more commercial this time round, so many things were closed I didn't enjoy it the same this time but do commend you on the polar bear enclosure and the dolphin as amazing so are the trainers. Movie world was as you would expect but the announces need to stop yelling into their mics ended up with a splitting head ache for the noise. Loved the outback experience food and show was amazing I go to this every time I am at the gold coast.

We love the coastal activities and watching the changeable weather conditions. We could just walk along that beach all morning. The beach can get a bit rough, that's ok, there's plenty of other things to do there.

More parks for the kids, like walking beams or little swing type things along the beach on some of the grassed areas,
Ice cream and fruit juice vendors.
Bicycle hire.
All walks should have great little pit stops, so there is more to it than the same view with nothing but walking

Wide open space great to walk or run throughout the day when the tide is out quite far. The Water is sparkling and glistening like glass especially on a cloudless blue sky day! Water is not too cold either and quite swimmable even in cooler months!

We used the tram for the first time down at the Gold Coast & was pleasantly surprised with the price & the time it took to get there. Would definitely use it again instead of taking my car.
