The school holidays are coming and it’s the time that memories are made, also a time that hotels are very expensive.
If you are lucky enough to live on the Gold Coast, a staycation could be just the ticket; why not spend some time exploring the things on our very own doorstep, the places people travel to see, why not take some time to look around and take in just how lucky we are.
If you don’t have a vehicle, it can be a little harder to get around by bus and train, but you could consider a car rental from Surfers Rent A Car. Hiring a car can give you the freedom to really explore and create those long-lasting memories for the kids.
So, what is there to do on the Gold Coast during the school holidays?
Hire a Car for the School Holidays
Hiring a car on the Gold Coast means you can maximise your days and make your staycation as memorable as possible for the whole family.
Head to the Park
Broadwater Parklands have opened a new park in August 2022, in addition to a fun packed park that includes a jumping pillow, and a rockpool kids swimming and water play area.
For a fun-packed day out that won’t cost the earth, but will be priceless for the kids, head on over to Broadwater Parklands.
Hire a car and head to the Hinterlands and enjoy everything Mount Tamborine has to offer. A rental car is a great way to see and do everything Mount Tamborine provides for couples, singles and families.
Mount Tamborine is a treasure chest of fun! Enjoy the Glow-Worm Caves, Treetop Challenge, Gallery Walk, Thunderbird Park, as well as distilleries, restaurants, a beautiful Skywalk over the rainforest, and much, much more.
Not only are we lucky enough to be the theme park capital of Australia, as locals we can get annual passes, so why not jump in the car and get your adrenaline pumping with rollercoasters, water parks, parades, and pet and /or observe both land and sea creatures including dolphins, penguins, and even tigers.
You have a stack of beautiful beaches at your disposal, simply pull up and enjoy. Take a surfboard, bucket and spade, football, or just take some water and a towel, and enjoy watching the waves roll in.
The Botanic Gardens
The Gold Coast Botanical Gardens has something for everyone, with beautiful plants and flowers, BBQ areas, a park for the children, a coffee shop with yummy treats, and an off-leash park for the dogs, you can spend a day just taking in the scenery, pointing out the wildlife, and exploring the sensory gardens.
Fancy A Dip?
Head to Gold Coast Aquatic Centre for heated pools, a splash pool for the kids, and diving boards; you won’t be disappointed, with both outdoor and indoor pools you can have fun in or out of the sun.
