Gold Coast - Sightseeing Tours and Activities

The Gold Coast is popular for its beautiful beaches, but swimming is only one of the top things to do in the city. If you love water sports, you can go surfing, snorkeling, and scuba diving or take lessons if you don’t yet know how. If you’re an adrenaline junkie, you’ll want to visit Dreamworld, Wet’n’Wild, and Warner Bros Movie World and go on fun and exciting rides. If you have the time, you can even take the Gold Coast Hinterland Great Walk, which lasts three days and takes you through breathtaking scenery. These are just some of the sightseeing tours and activities you can enjoy when you’re in the Gold Coast!
