We have visited the Gold Coast a number of times although this visit was the first time we have made it to the Gold Coast Hinterland! I had been told on numerous occasions that it was definitely worth the effort. I have to agree that it is most certainly worth the visit.
This month we visited Queensland for a snappy 5 day break. We had told the kids that we wouldn’t be doing the theme parks this time as we had only visited some of the theme parks a couple of years ago, you can read about that visit here. The theme parks are very expensive for a family of 5 but there are a few options to get around that. As we had recently visited SeaWorld, MovieWorld and Wet’N’Wild, the kids were keen to visit Dreamworld.
We took a short break to Queensland for 5 days, it was supposed to be over our March long weekend as the kids get the Thursday and Friday off school as well as the Monday public holiday. I booked the flights last May but unfortunately I somehow managed to book the wrong weekend! Last year we visited Airlie Beach and this year was Surfers Paradise on the Gold Coast.
