Surfing Lessons: 

The Gold Coast is known for its great surf beaches, so why not take a surfing lesson as a group? Many surf schools offer group lessons, and it’s a great way to bond with your friends or family while having fun in the sun.

Escape Rooms: 

Escape rooms are a great way to test your problem-solving skills as a group. The Gold Coast has a variety of escape rooms to choose from, each with their own unique theme and challenges. Some popular options include Padlockd and Escape Hunt.

Kayaking Tours

Kayaking tours are a fun way to explore the Gold Coast’s waterways and get some exercise at the same time. There are a variety of tours available, ranging from short paddles to full-day adventures.

Theme Parks

The Gold Coast is home to several world-class theme parks, including Dreamworld, Sea World, and Movie World. These parks offer a range of rides and attractions for all ages, making them a great choice for groups.

Jet Boating

For a thrill-seeking group, jet boating is an exhilarating activity that’s sure to get your adrenaline pumping. These high-speed rides take you through the waterways of the Gold Coast, with plenty of twists, turns, and splashes along the way. Several companies offer jet boat tours on the Gold Coast, where you can speed along the water and take in the stunning views.

Wine Tasting Tours

The Gold Coast’s hinterland is home to several wineries, making it a great destination for wine lovers. Many wineries offer tours and tastings, which are a fun way to explore the region’s wine culture with a group.

Stand-Up Paddleboarding

Stand-up paddleboarding is a fun and relaxing way to explore the Gold Coast’s waterways. Many tour operators offer group paddleboarding experiences, which can be tailored to suit your group’s needs. Tallebudgera Creek is our favourite spot to watch the world go by as you stroll along on your board.

Whale Watching

From June to November, humpback whales migrate along the Gold Coast’s coastline, making it a great time for whale watching. Several companies offer whale watching tours, which are a great way to see these majestic creatures up close.

Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary

The Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary is a must-visit attraction on the Gold Coast. It’s a great place to learn about Australia’s unique wildlife and conservation efforts. Your group can enjoy up-close encounters with kangaroos, koalas, and other native animals. You can also attend daily shows and presentations, including a bird of prey flight show and a crocodile feeding demonstration.

Glow Worm tours

The Gold Coast is home to several national parks that are home to thousands of glow worms. Taking a glow worm tour is a unique and magical experience that your group is sure to love. Some popular tour companies include Natural Bridge Glow Worm Tour and Glow Worm Cave Tours.

Tree Top Adventure Park

For a fun and challenging activity, try the Tree Top Adventure Park. Located in the Gold Coast hinterland or in Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, each park features a range of aerial courses and challenges, including ziplines, suspension bridges, and more.
