Top 10 Gold Coast School Holiday Activities
Many parents might relate to the bittersweet feeling of when your kids go on school holidays. Sure, you’re excited to spend quality time with them, but for some, figuring out how you’re going to keep them entertained can be a daunting task!
We put it out to you to come up with some boredom busters when you’re on the Gold Coast. So, in no particular order, here’s a list of your fabulous suggestions.
This resort is known as “Heaven for kids, paradise for parents.” Tell us more, we hear you say! This is Australia’s only resort with a waterpark, ice-rink and kids club all under one roof, so there is no need to leave this accommodation. The resort also offers a Dusty’s Adventure Pass for $50, which includes:
1x Ice Skating Ticket at Planet Chill
1x Laser Tag session
1x Virtual Reality session
1x Virtual Reality Roller-Coaster session
1 x BONUS ticket to use at your choice of attractions
Learn to glide gracefully across the top of water at the Gold Coast Wake Park. They have two cable lines for different skill levels as well as a café where you can refuel after you’ve had some fun in the water!
Theme Parks: Movie World, Sea World, Dreamworld, Wet’n’Wild
The iconic theme parks on the Gold Coast are always great for a thrill. Whether you’re jumping on the coasters at Movie World or Dreamworld, watching a dolphin show at Sea World or getting drenched at Wet’n’Wild, there’s something for people of all ages!
If you’ve got a crafty kid on your hands, they might be interested in one of the Craft Parlour’s school holiday workshops. Classes run for four hours.
If action is more your child’s thing, the Stunt Park at Nerang is a must-try! They offer a “Stunt Kids” course which involves an action-packed program for children ages 6 through to 14 years old. The full-day holiday program runs from 9.30 a.m. until 3.30 p.m. with the next one kicking off on the 9th of July.
Hitting 270 metres into the air, this experience is certainly for the kids who aren’t afraid of heights. The SkyPoint Climb lasts for 90 minutes and is a must-do Gold Coast adventure. *Children must be 12 years and over to do the climb.
Practice your swing at Top Golf as you hit micro-chipped golf balls into giant targets, scoring points when you hit them. It’s a great social activity and fun for the whole family!
Self-drive to Springbrook
You can always create your own adventure by taking a day trip out to one of the Gold Coast Hinterland destinations. Springbrook’s heritage-listed national park offers endless walking trails, so if you have a nature-lover on your hands, pop this one on the to-do list!
Given age restrictions, there’s no chance your young one will be jumping out of an aeroplane anytime soon, so the next best thing? iFly! You can be as young as 3 years old, with no upper age limit.
Of course, you can’t visit the Gold Coast without heading to the beach, and if you’re keen to learn how to surf, we recommend Paramount Adventures. They also offer plenty of other exciting adventure-based activities, including indoor rock climbing, stand-up paddle boarding, kayaking and abseiling.
