Queensland is known for it’s sunny weather and great waves for surfing, but there is much more to do here than just that. From visiting one of the many theme parks on the Gold Coast, heading to Surfers Paradise, or travelling further up North to snorkel in the Great Barrier Reef. There’s an endless list of activities to tick off your must-see list when in QLD.

Movie World

Bring your family and friends to Movie World for a fun filled day of rides, movie action and adventure. Popular rides for thrill seekers include the Green Lantern Rollercoaster and the ever famous Superman Escape which goes from 0-100km in just 2 seconds. If you’re after something a little more family friendly, the Road Runner Rollercoaster takes you through a casual chase in the Arizona Desert. Or if you’re after some thrills and spills, don’t forget to pack your swimwear so you can go on the Wild West water ride, which holds high chances of getting wet. From thrills, kids fun and family entertainment, Movie World offers up something for everyone at every age to enjoy.


Surfers Paradise

There are so many things to do and see on the Gold Coast and Surfers Paradise is the place to go for most of them. Suitable for families, couples, friends or businessman, there’s something for everyone. Cavill Avenue is home to all the popular retail chains like Mimco and Apple if you want to do some serious shopping. Or if shopping isn’t for you, than you may consider embarking on one of the many tours that depart from the Surfers area. Pack your ray-ban aviators and trucker cap and head on an outdoor Aquaduck or Jet Boat tour, or for something a little more family friendly visit King Tutt’s Putt Putt. Once you’ve finished off a full day of fun, dine at one of the many restaurants and bars that Surfers has on offer. Whether it’s shopping, outdoor adventuring or dining in, Surfers Paradise continues to remain a popular destination to visit among locals and tourists.


Great Barrier Reef

Forget the hustle and bustle of the Gold Coast and head up North to the Great Barrier Reef. One of the seven wonders of the natural world, and the world’s largest and most remarkable coral reef. The Great Barrier Reef is comprised of marine life, blue waters, reef systems and coral cays, with hundreds of breathtakingly tropical islands. It gives divers one of the most amazing underwater experiences they could ever imagine. Not just limited to divers, the Reef also offers day tours, aircraft and helicopter tours, glass- bottom boat viewing tours and more. One of the most beautiful natural attractions in the world, make sure you visit The Great Barrier Reef at least once in your lifetime for a truly breathtaking experience.
