What to do

Kids and parents on Gold Coast beach

Explore the beaches

The Gold Coast is overflowing with white sandy shores, stretching from the southern end at Rainbow Bay to South Stradbroke Island in the north. Your trip wouldn’t be complete without spending time at one of the many pristine beaches, from Surfers Paradise to Broadbeach. Just don’t forget the sunscreen.  

Take a thrilling ride and shop 'til you drop

When you’re not making sandcastles and splashing in the pacific get ready for some adventure in Australia’s theme park capital. Unleash your inner kid at Dreamworld, WhiteWater World, Wet’n’Wild, Movie World and Sea World. You can get discounted combo passes by purchasing through the NRMA.

For something a little less raucous, stroll to Harbour Town Outlet Shopping Centre and grab a bargain. Both just 20 minutes away if you’re staying at a Treasure Island holiday park.

Relax while the kids play

Rather not venture out? There’s an array of on-site facilities at Treasure Island holiday park to help you relax and keep the kids entertained for the duration of your stay. Lounge around any one of the four resort style pools or heated spas while the kids play in the water park or games room, play a round of tennis or mini golf, or enjoy a flick at the outdoor cinema.
