The Gold Coast is the perfect place to organise your next getaway. Whether your friends and family are coming for the waves, the cars, or the atmosphere you are bound to find something that everyone will enjoy. The Aquatic Centre is perfect for those who don’t want the ocean waves (or if they get a little too choppy), or for a more relaxing swim you can’t go past The Spit. Plus with the Gold Coast 600 around the corner, you’ll want to get organised now as accommodation often sells out quickly for the weekend as everyone is vying for the best spot in town. As a bonus, you’ve always got the local theme parks and dining precincts to keep you entertained and well feed.
While the Gold Coast is well known for its beaches and river systems, the Gold Coast Aquatic Centre is often forgotten. It’s a world class swimming facility, in the heart of Southport’s Broadwater Parklands. It features a 10 lane competition pool, children splash pool, diving platforms and an indoor/outdoor cafe.
The centre is going to be used for swimming and diving competitions during the 2018 Commonwealth Games, so why not have a swim and a dive with your friends and family knowing you’re in the same pool where records will be broken.
The Spit is another wonderful spot to visit – and loved by the locals. On one side you have a beautiful Gold Coast beach with a rock wall you can walk out onto and a sand pumping jetty which is popular with the fishermen, and on the other side you have a series of secluded beaches with calm water if the ocean waves are
too intense (or you simply want something more peaceful). Plus there is a small cafe for fish and chips, snacks and ice creams if you get peckish.
On October 20-22nd the Gold Coast 600 will be racing through the streets of the coast once again. Witness the supercars doing battle through Surfers Paradise, check out the destination bars and chill zones, and make sure you are there for the coasts biggest party.
There are usually some big name music acts, a range of merchandise for sale and plenty of photo opportunities so make sure you get your tickets and organise your accommodation before the good spots are gone!
