71 Best Gold Coast Attractions Every Tourist Must See

The Gold Coast is designed for children and family fun with Theme Parks like WetnWild Water World, Movie World, Dream World and Whitewater World. The Gold Coast beaches are world famous and the best area to stay is Surfers Paradise, where there are a number of other fun activities and museums.

Inland from the Gold Coast is called the Hinderland and there are amazing places to visit in this area. Mt Tamborine offers the Glow Worm Caves, or the Rainforest Walk. Further south Springbrook National Park offers delights such as waterfalls, rock formations, and a view to die for.

Countryside not your thing? Then perhaps a day in Brisbane may suit or take a coastal drive south. Perhaps a drive to Tropical Fruit World for a gastronomic adventure!
