Live Like A Local: Gold Coast Australia

Duration
15 Days
Prices From:
US$ 1,042

A travel highlight for most Globetrotters is to mingle and interact with locals. But to actually live amongst them, even for just a short time, is an experience of a life time.


The Gold Coast dares you to try everything it offers. Mingle with dolphins and polar bears at world-class theme parks, dig your toes into fine white sand, ride sparkling waves, visit an island and explore the lush, subtropical hinterland.

Whatever pace or possibilities you want from a holiday destination, you will find them on Australia's Gold Coast. Enjoy the warmth and sunshine of a subtropical climate, relax on endless golden beaches or explore the untouched beauty of ancient rainforests.

The Southern Gold Coast is a region of contrasts that has been popular among Australian holiday-makers for almost 100 years. There are oceanfront apartments with breathtaking views, modern shopping precincts and quality restaurants plus major sporting clubs.

EXPERIENCE COOLANGATTA

The town of Coolangatta sits near the Queensland-New South Wales border and is home to the Twin Towns Services Club and Seagulls Rugby League Club. These are among the largest sporting and entertainment venues in Australia featuring live shows, gaming machines, restaurants and world-class sporting facilities.

The region is also characterized by the slow and majestic Tweed River that winds its way through lush cane fields, farmlands and tropical fruit plantations as well as the towns and villages like Kingscliff, Cabarita Beach and Pottsville that are found dotted along the coastline.

In addition to magnificent surf beaches, attractions in this scenic part of the Gold Coast include Tropical Fruit World, Pioneer Plantation and Melaleuca Station, all offering an insight into the rich rural diversity and heritage of the Tweed Valley.

Situated at the foot of Mt. Warning is Murwillumbah, scene of the annual Tweed Valley Banana Festival and Tweed Festival of Performing Arts. Further north is one of the Gold Coast's most famous landmarks, Currumbin Sanctuary. Millions of visitors have enjoyed the spectacle of hand feeding thousands of wild lorikeets at the sanctuary and greeting some of Australia's most loved native animals.

If you have the time, why not consider another Goway Live Like a Local Idea to the Sunshine Coast, the Central Coast of New South Wales, the Bay of Plenty in New Zealand or the Cook Islands?
