From the beach to the creek, the Gold Coast’s waterways are a central part of the region’s lifestyle and tourism. Every on-water activity imaginable can be found between Paradise Point and Kingscliff Beach, and the Broadwater is particularly popular amongst thrill seekers for its huge offering of water sports, including diving, jet-ski safaris, parasailing, jetboating, kite surfing, snorkelling, yachting and cruising.

While visiting the Gold Coast, you must check out the famous learn-to-surf classes, some of which are operated by world champions. Many Gold Coast hotels also offer surfboard hire. For those who perhaps don’t quite have the balance for surfing, there are many paddle boarding and kayaking explorations available, offering a fantastic way to see a new side of the Golf Coast. Other popular activities include deep-sea fishing charters, whale-watching tours, guided waterway cruises and simply swimming at some of the most scenic beaches in the world.
You will find boat ramps and fishing platforms in most suburbs, as well as waterfront parks and barbeque areas to enjoy with the family. If you’d rather not get your feet wet, most beaches and waterways have walking tracks – the perfect way to get some exercise and end another fun-filled day on the Gold Coast!
