Top 5 day trips on the Gold Coast

Top 5 day trips on the Gold Coast

We are blessed with a beautiful sub-tropical climate on the Gold Coast, and there’s nothing better than getting out and about to see everything our beautiful region has to offer. To help you plan your next day trip, here are 5 great suggestions from the team at GC Car Audio.

Surfers Paradise

Surfers Paradise is always a draw card for tourists, but even us locals can enjoy the glitter strip’s cafes, bars and entertainment. With world renowned beaches, great eats and idyllic beachfront markets, there’s always something happening in this little metropolis.


If you’re looking for something beachy, but a little more low-key, then why not take a drive to Currumbin. Whether you want to try your hand at paddle boarding, surfing, or you just want to take a dip in the ocean, Currumbin has something for everyone.

Springbrook National Park

Springbrook National Park is a must-see for all Gold Coasters. If you want to see spectacular waterfalls and lush rainforest then this is the place for you. The Natural Bridge section is a favourite with locals due to its heavenly cave-like rock formation and waterfall.

O’Reilly’s Rainforest Retreat

If you want to make a real day of it, wind your way up to O’Reilly’s Rainforest Retreat set in the stunning Lamington National Park. Go for a stroll along the many nature walks or feed the native Crimson Rosellas and King Parrots. You can even stay at the retreat or indulge in a spa treatment.

Hinze Dam

As well as being our main source of drinking water, Hinze Dam is a great place to spend a family filled day. With awesome playgrounds, bike tracks and walking tracks, as well as great swimming, fishing and boating opportunities, you’ll be spoilt for choice.
