Thanks to consistent weather, a beautiful environment and around 300 days of sunshine per year The Gold Coast is a year-round holiday destination. One of the great things about the Gold Coast as a holiday location is the broad range of activities that are on offer. Some people enjoy a non-stop, action-packed holiday full of adventure sports, non-stop excitement and new challenges. For others, their idea of a dream holiday is relaxing on the beach with a good book, enjoying a relaxing drink by the pool, or catching up on sleep with a lazy afternoon siesta after a long, leisurely lunch.
Whatever your idea of a great time, Broadbeach is the perfect place to base yourself. And when it comes to Gold Coast luxury resorts, you can’t go past Phoenix Resort Apartments. It’s in the centre of the coast, with all the great spots you will want to visit close by – many within walking distance.
Here are our Top 7 places to visit on the Gold Coast – with a mix of can’t-be-missed options to suit every type of holidaymaker.
While the Gold Coast has many attractions, there is no doubt that the beach is what it is most famous for. There are plenty of options to choose from – Surfer’s Paradise, Broadbeach, Nobbies, Palm Beach, Miami, Currumbin and more. Whether you’re swimming, sunbathing, bodyboarding, surfing or just building sandcastles, you’ll enjoy the clean sand, crisp waves and beautiful sunshine of the patrolled Gold Coast beaches. Broadbeach, one of the best, is just a 100 metre stroll from your apartment at Phoenician Resort.
The Theme Parks
When people think about the Gold Coast, theme parks spring to mind. For a generation, this area has been home to Australia’s leading parks. You can’t spend a week on the Coast without taking some time to check out these fun-filled fantasy lands. Choose from Warner Brothers Movie World, Dreamworld and its sister park, Whitewater World, the internationally famous Sea World on the spit or the wild slides of Wet N Wild. Age is irrelevant – there’s fun to be had for all with a trip to one of these famous entertainment zones.
Just up the road from the Phoenician Resort Apartments in Surfers Paradise is Skypoint. Located on top of Australia’s tallest residential tower it offers panoramic views of the entire Gold Coast. Take in the entire skyline while you enjoy a meal or a cocktail at the Gold Coast’s highest Bistro and Bar 77 levels above ground. And if you are feeling sufficiently adventurous, you can take the SkyPoint Climb – Australia’s highest external climb. Starting on level 77 at the SkyPoint Observation Deck your guide will walk you up towards the eagles’ nest located at the highest point around 270 metres above the ground. Very cool!
Meet Our Animals
Get back to nature and spend some time with some of Australia’s cutest creatures. There are several animal options not far from Broadbeach. Visit the Currumbin Zoo to see a diverse range of Australia’s native animals, koalas, kangaroos and reptiles. Just south of Miami you will find the David Fleay Wildlife Park where you can explore various Australian natural habitats and get up close and personal with kangaroos, crocodiles, koalas, emus, brolgas, dingoes, bilbies and even a platypus. Or visit Paradise Country, for the authentic Aussie farm experience, where you can breakfast with koalas, go walkabout with wildlife and visit the animal nursery.
