Happy holiday friends. Make sure you check out the rest of Inside Gold Coast for all the best spots to eat and things to do.
So we’re allowed to travel again, what a treat. Not across the world as we once could but luckily for us, we live in the very best country there is and there’s plenty of magic to explore right here in our own backyard.
Particularly on the Gold Coast, the land of beautiful beaches, five-star eats and all of the fun activities. It’s the perfect spot for a holiday really. Speaking of holidays, you know what’s a fun way to holiday? Caravanning #vanlife. Or, if that’s not your thing, in a holiday park surrounded by other good time people and all of the amenities right at your doorstep.
Not to mention you’re out in the fresh air, the kids can make holiday friends AND you can sit outside and watch the sun set with a glass of wine in hand every single eve.
Speaking of holiday parks, we made a list. Since we’re allowed to visit them again, here’s a few of our favourites on the Coast with a couple of special deals thrown in to encourage you to get on down here and experience all the delightful things we have to share.
