Gold coast is a beautiful holiday destination on the east coast of Australia. I went there for 4 days with my husband in April of this year and had an amazing time. Here is the list of things we did and would recommend anyone planning to visit Gold Coast:
Our stay: Novotel Hotel ( 2 nights); Watermark Hotel ( 2 nights). Both of these hotels are very close to surfers paradise beach.
To move around: You can rent a self-drive car (Pick & drop at the airport) or use a "go card" to take a tram/bus for an unlimited travel @ AUD10 per day.
Day 1: Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary
It's a great place for animal lovers. You can hold a Koala or sit around with Kangaroos and create some wonderful memories of a lifetime. The Sanctuary has a lovely train to show you around. Please do wear comfy shoes because you will need to walk a lot.
