STAY DRY OR GET WET – THAT IS THE QUESTION. THANKFULLY, THERE ARE PLENTY OF WAYS TO DO BOTH HERE ON THE GOLDY. THERE MAY BE A TONNE OF FUN TO BE HAD ON LAND, BUT THERE’S EVEN MORE OUT ON THE WATER…
Expect 360 degrees of fun, guaranteed, with Coasting Around – the self-drive round boat experience that lets you see the Gold Coast Waterways like you’ve never seen them before. BYO food and drinks or splash out on one of the three BBQ-equipped luxury round boats, which seat a whopping 30 passengers. All boats come with a Bluetooth speaker and Sumbrella, too.
THE YOT CLUB
The ultimate entertainment venue on the water, it’s hard to miss the YOT Club as it floats by the Gold Coast. Spread across two luxurious levels, the YOT Club is the world’s first super yacht entertainment venue and is fully licensed. Reminiscent of an exclusive day club – only on the water – you’ll be swept up in the extravagance from the moment you step aboard. Live DJs, a fully-stocked bar and plenty of lush seating areas will keep the party going all day (and night) long.
Strap in and brace yourself for a wet, wild ride above the Gold Coast waterways. Jetpack Adventures at Surfers Paradise is home to the world’s first water-powered jetpack device, which has been sending adventurers high into the sky since 2012. Whether you’re ten or 89 (the oldest and youngest jetpack pilots the company has seen) you’re bound to love being propelled above the water by the jetpack’s two jet nozzles. Steer using your bodyweight or the two hand controls – the adventure is totally yours.
GOLD COAST GONDOLAS
Gold Coast Gondola’s have been bringing a little slice of Venice to the Glitter Strip since 2000. Specifically designed and built for Queensland conditions and manoeuvred by an experienced gondolier, each gondola is luxuriously outfitted to ensure your experience is truly magical. Whether you opt to just cruise or enjoy a dinner on board, an afternoon or evening aboard a Gold Coast Gondola makes for the perfect Valentine’s Day or anniversary celebration.
This iconic watercoaster is a must-experience Gold Coast activity, letting you tour the city like never before. The amphibious ‘duck’ takes you from land and water, starting in Cavill Avenue and heading out along the famous golden beaches of Surfers Paradise before jetting straight out onto the Broadwater. Cruise the Gold Coast’s intricate waterways, keeping an eye out for famous landmarks and native wildlife, then look out the window as the boat transforms back into a bus to take you home again.
