Five-star fun in the sun on Australia’s Gold Coast
BEST TIME TO VISIT
We recommend visiting around April or May to take advantage of comfortable temperatures and smaller crowds. Thanks to there being no school holidays this time of year and the ever present humidity making the average temperature of 25°C feel balmy, this is one of the more pleasing times to organise a yacht charter on the Gold Coast.
Motorsports fans should consider visiting in October to get among the action at the Gold Coast 600. This race is held every year and attendees can marvel at high end supercars winding their way through the streets of Surfers Paradise.
Ideal weather: 25 – 32°C
Activities & Experiences
Whether you’re looking for a decadent, luxurious afternoon or a thrill seeking adventure, the Gold Coast has something for you. Invite all your closest friends for a day of exploring, and cap it all off with a gourmet dinner onboard as you’re whisked back to shore.
Before setting sail, consider adding these must-do activities to your schedule:
Visit the Theme Parks
No mention of the Gold Coast would be complete without discussing the theme park options. One of the area's biggest drawcards, families from all over Australia (and the world) travel to Warner Bros Movie World, Sea World, Dreamworld or Wet n’ Wild for a day of heart-pumping fun. Ride thrilling roller coasters, meet some of your favourite movie characters and spot fun loving dolphins demonstrating natural behaviours. Get in early to beat the queues and don't forget sunscreen!
See the SkyPoint observation deck
Located in iconic Surfers Paradise, the Q1 building rises 230 metres above sea level, dominating the city skyline. From the top of the building the SkyPoint observation deck provides panoramic views of the stunning Gold Coast. If you’re feeling adventurous, try the SkyPoint Climb. Australia’s highest external climb, this adventure departs from the 77th level of the Q1 building. Participants will be guided to the eagle's nest located 270 metres above the ground below. Enjoy 360° views of the beautiful skyline and toast your success at the 77th floor Bistro+Bar.
Dine at Kiyomi
Tucked away inside the glittering Star Casino is the mouthwatering Kiyomi japanese restaurant. Visionary Executive Head Chef Chase Kojima has created a delectable menu of authentic Tokyo inspired dishes with a modern twist. Put your trust in the chef by dining on a pre-set menu of small plates including tender Wagyu beef with an eel and kombu jus. Bookings are essential as this is one of the Gold Coast's most talked about establishments.
Take to the skies
If there’s one thing the Gold Coast does best, it’s luxury and excess without apology. What could be more luxurious than taking a private helicopter tour above this golden coastline. We recommend flying to Sirromet Wines, the largest and most awarded wine producer in Queensland. Have a helicopter drop you right at the cellar door. Customisable tours are also available. If you fly with Gold Coast Helitours, you can even have Michelin star chef Frank Meijer be your pilot for the day as he takes you to a scenic location for a gourmet picnic
