Exploring the Gold Coast by Caravan

Have you ever heard the saying ‘become a tourist in your own hometown’? Liz Cantor is doing just that, exploring her hometown the Gold Coast, or the GC as the locals call it. Your options of where to stay on the GC are plentiful and we are going to show you a couple that incorporate all styles of stay.

This is Nobby Beach Holiday Village, it is centrally located in the heart of the Gold Coast, with the beach down the road and alfresco cafes and shops on your door step and for kids it has the all-important water slide. If you haven’t exhausted the little ones at the beach, which is just down the road, endless goes on the slide will soon tucker them out!

If water is your thing, you can’t go past Tallebudgera Creek Tourist Park, nestled on the shores of Tallebudgera Creek and the surf beach is a stroll along the path. Tallebudgera Creek’s flat water is great for SUPing, boating, fishing and cooling off and Tallebudgera Beach and Burleigh Headland Walk is considered to be one of the best walks on the GC.

You would be familiar with fantastic theme parks, the rides, the thrills and fun, the GC’s spectacular beaches and fine surf breaks, but there are other attractions. At Ashmore Palms Holiday Village there is the largest privately displayed collection of Macaw parrots in Australia. Ashmore Palms Holiday Village offers resort style accommodation with a real family fun holiday atmosphere.

If you are thinking of a mini break or want to know more, go to Metricon Stadium for the Gold Coast Caravan and Outdoor Expo from 1st to 3rd March – you might even meet Scott Hillier there!
