I remember when I was 7, my parents brought the whole family to Gold Coast for a week long family trip. I don’t really remember much of it, but we definitely had a great time. It’s funny how whenever I ask someone if they ever been to Gold Coast / Queensland, if they do, they mostly went there with their family, when they were young. I guess Gold Coast is a pretty famous destination for a family trip and it will always be.
After my trip to Queensland with the girls ( and ben. ) I can say is actually a very nice place for friends and couples to go too, not just for families. This Queensland trip was out of my expectations! I should say we have the best itinerary, everything was perfectly planned.
This is a little vlog of our Gold Coast Trip!
If you’re planning on a Queensland trip, here’s some of the highlights I would recommend:
Sky Point Climb
I always have a thing for views with tall buildings and architecture. Climbing up to the sky point was exciting! Especially when you made it to the top and look at the view and it’s Gold Coast. You get to see the beautiful beach and also, you might find whales moving at the sea like how we did!
Hot Air Balloon experience
I’ve always wanted to go on a hot air balloon ride. We have hot air balloon festivals here in Malaysia but if I’m not wrong, you don’t really get to travel on the hot air balloons but the one I had in Gold Coast, we get to travel from farms to farms. The journey was spectacular. If you are planning for a wedding proposal you might want to consider doing on a hot air balloon! Two couples actually proposal when we were on it!
I'm really glad that I did my first dive at Gold Coast. Our sky dive plans were cancelled at first due to the weather but thank god we made it the next day! If you ever want to sky dive, Gold Coast is one of the best place to get your first dive! If you haven thought of it, you should really think about it! You will never regret!
Paradise Jet Boating
I never know jet boating could be so much fun! Our jet boat pilot did crazy fun stunts. Yes, you might get wet but no one drop into the sea so it's pretty safe. Best part about it, we actually saw dolphins swimming!!!! Lucky us!
