How to spend four relaxing days on the Gold Coast

Mar 29, 2023

Discover how to enjoy a serene four-day getaway on the picturesque Gold Coast with our itinerary, specially curated for you to unwind and rejuvenate at Nobby Beach Holiday Village.

Nestled in the charming coastal suburb of Nobby Beach, Queensland, Australia, you’ll be treated to breathtaking beaches, delectable dining experiences, and an exciting nightlife. There’s an abundance of activities to explore and indulge in during your stay.

Day One


Kick off your day early by catching the breathtaking sunrise over the Pacific Ocean from Miami Headland. Observe the first beach enthusiasts as they make their way towards the sea for their morning swim, revel in the scenic surroundings, and relish this serene moment. Don’t forget to keep an eye out for humpback whales as they migrate along the Queensland Coast from May to November. Spend the morning at the beach, soaking up the sun and enjoying the waves, then take a leisurely stroll down Nobby’s illustrious Rainbow stairs and head over to BSKT Cafe for a hearty brunch, which offers delicious healthy options.


Return to Nobby Beach and conquer our colossal waterslide. How many rides can you squeeze in within 10 minutes? Then unwind by the poolside with a delectable ice cream.


Spice up your evening with a short stroll to Miami Marketta. Treat yourself to an array of international street food vendors and enjoy live music from talented artists every Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday evening from 5 pm until late.


Day Two


Kick off your day with a refreshing morning stroll along the picturesque Nobby Beach, soaking up the breathtaking ocean views. Then, head over to the Nobby Beach Surf Club for a hearty breakfast while overlooking the serene ocean.

Nurture your mind-body connection with a free Tai Chi class (every Monday from 8:45am at Justin’s Park in Burleigh Heads), or get your body moving with a beach-side yoga session starting at just $5 (every Wednesday and Thursday from 8am).

Get into the groove of your Gold Coast adventure with a stand-up paddleboard rental from Gold Coast Action Hire for as little as $30 at Tallebudgera Creek.

Indulge in a beachside brunch at The Tropic, situated at the legendary Burleigh Pavilion, just a short cycle from Tallebudgera Creek, where you can relish in the spectacular ocean views and bottomless drinks.


In the afternoon, explore the Burleigh Heads National Park, located just a short drive away. The park boasts exquisite walking trails and awe-inspiring views of the coastline. Trek through the lush rainforest and take in the panoramic views of the coast from the lookout.

Wrap up the day with a delightful dinner at one of the numerous restaurants in Nobby Beach, such as The Cambus Wallace, a charming bar that features a great selection of craft beer, whiskey, and cocktails, all while listening to live tunes by local musicians.

Day Three

Start your day with a morning surf lesson at the beach, which is a great way to experience the waves and get some exercise. After the lesson, head to The Paddock Bakery, a local bakery that offers delicious pastries, bread, and coffee.
Experience an exciting afternoon at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, where you’ll have the chance to observe a variety of native Australian animals. For an even more thrilling adventure, take part in the Treetop Challenge, which offers one of Australia’s longest zip-line tours over canyons and through a vibrant emerald-green rainforest canopy. And if you’re up for a challenge, test your skills on the high-ropes courses, suitable for all abilities.

In the evening, treat your tastebuds with Em’s Fish and Chips on a Wednesday night in the village or head across the road to Mexicali and indulge in all the quintessential modern Mexican foods you could hope for, and bottomless drinks.


Day Four

Begin the day with a visit to the Burleigh Farmers Market (held every Saturday from 7am – 12 noon ‘rain, hail or shine’ at nearby Burleigh Heads State School) or the Village Markets on the 1st Sunday of every month. Savour organic fruit and vegetables, gourmet and global foods, before exploring a different pocket of the coast.
Spend the afternoon exploring the local shops and boutiques along the Gold Coast Highway or for more retail therapy head down the road to Pacific Fair Shopping Centre and shop till you drop in Queensland’s largest Shopping centre.


End your final night in Nobby Beach with dinner at Bine Bar & Dining, which specialises in craft beer and perfectly matched food.
