The Gold Coast is a major tourist destination with its sunny subtropical climate, surfing beaches, canal and waterway systems, its high-rise dominated skyline and rainforest hinterland.

You will have approximately 4 hours at your leisure to discover the Gold Coast district of Surfers Paradise. Browse through the many shops and designer arcades, enjoy a lunch of Aussie fish and chips or sit in one of the many chic beachside restaurants. Soak up the sun’s rays as you relax on the famous dazzling beach and enjoy a refreshing swim in the sea.

After a day of discovering the magic of the Gold Coast the coach will be waiting to bring you back to the ship.
