Top 5 Gold Coast Activities With Kids


Booked a Gold Coast holiday with your family. We all know the wonderful joy and frustration that can come when travelling with the family. The team at ULTIQA Resorts are experts at finding activities that will keep your kids entertained.


1.Theme Parks

The Gold Coast is well known for its theme parks and that’s because they are the perfect spot to take the entire family. Whether you visit Movie World, Dreamworld, Wet ‘n’ Wild or all three, each park offers enough action and excitement to keep the kids talking about this trip for years.


2.Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary

Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary is home to some uniquely Australian animals, including Kangaroos and cuddly Koalas, which you can get up close and personal with in an animal encounter. Watch Australia’s most beautiful species of birds take flight, check out some slimy reptiles, and explore kilometres of natural habitats for all of the animal guests.


3.Broadwater Parklands

Broadwater Parklands has something for every family member. For the youngest kids, rock pools are the perfect place to spend the day, featuring little pools, lots of fun water fountains, and some shady spots for lunch. Dotted with play areas throughout the entire area, there are jumping pillows, swings, bike tracks, slides, and bigger playgrounds for the older kids. Surrounded by coastline, the park has perfect access to very calm beach waters, perfect for swimming and splashing around for the youngest of swimmers. The Broadwater Parklands are located on Marine Parade in Southport.


4.Time Zone

Located in the heart of Surfers Paradise, Time Zone is the perfect place for a boiling hot or rainy day on the Gold Coast. Get the kids out of the elements and into an arcade style environment with tons of video games, bumper cars, and laser skirmish. Perfect for kids of all ages (yes even the adults) Time Zone operates on a pay to play system that is easy to budget but allows the kids to have some freedom.


5.Glow Worms Tour

Visit the spectacular hinterland for great picnics, hikes, and outdoor entertainment. The Tamborine Mountain Glow Worm tour features two large chambers, interlinked by tunnels where you can see the stunning and sparkling glow worms. Guaranteed to see thousands of glow worms all year round, the kids are sure to be amazed by this natural wonder.


No matter where you play and visit with the kids while visiting the Gold Coast, we welcome you to stay at one of our three family friendly ULTIQA Resorts- Air on Broadbeach, Beach Haven, and Freshwater Point. In 2020 we will also welcome another Broadbeach property – ULTIQA Signature.
