Gold Coast Activities and Programs
With extraordinary wildlife encounters, a World Heritage–listed rainforest and championship golf courses, the Gold Coast offers an abundance of activities.
The Gold Coast's star attraction is its beaches, including the famous stretch of sand at Surfers Paradise where groups can learn to surf. Beyond the beaches, business event groups can discover the nearby World Heritage–listed rainforest, tee up at its many championship golf courses or visit wildlife sanctuaries.
Rewarding experiences in the city
Learn to surf
It’s called Surfers Paradise for a reason – learn to ride the famous waves with Gold Coast Surf Academy. Then retire to the Surf Club’s upstairs Bistro for a relaxing lunch overlooking the crashing waves.
Gold Coast’s TopGolf is not the standard 18 holes, this new high-tech golfing hotspot offers options to please beginners and pros. For those looking for a traditional golfing experience, visit one of the nearby championship courses like Sanctuary Cove Golf and Country Club - Australia’s only course designed by late golfing legend Arnold Palmer.
Enjoy breakfast at SeaWorld
Treat groups to breakfast with the dolphins at SeaWorld’s Dolphin Lagoon, before getting even more up-close to the dolphins in the shallows of the lagoon.
Visit Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary
Located towards the southern end of the Gold Coast, spend a day with iconic Australian animals at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary. Here, groups can also take the TreeTop Challenge which includes Australia’s highest and fastest zipline experience.
Explore further afield
Indulge in the nearby rainforest
Treat business groups to a chartered helicopter ride to O’Reilly’s Rainforest Retreat - nestled in the World Heritage-listed Lamington National Park. Once arrived, groups can explore the rainforest on guided tours, bird watch or get up close to wildlife.
