Gold Coast | Outdoor Activities

Get outdoors and stay active on your Gold Coast holiday with a range of outdoor activities from water sports to hinterland hiking adventures. Grab a surfboard, bike, boat or just your running shoes and start exploring this vibrant region.

Beach activities

With 70 kilometres of coastline, you can spend the best part of your day relaxing on one of Gold Coast’s stunning beaches. If you’re feeling adventurous, catch waves on a surfboard, stand-up-paddleboard through the creek systems or jet boat through inlets.

Hinterland activities

Lace your boots up and hike through the luscious Gold Coast Hinterland and spot native Queensland wildlife. You’ll stumble across cascading waterfalls and swimming holes. Be sure to explore Springbrook National Park and the Natural Bridge where you can even see glow worms in action after dark.

If you want to spend the night (or two) under the stars, set up tent or book a glamping experience.

Sports and adrenaline activities

Go sky high to get a bird’s eye view of the turquoise waters and scream your lungs out skydiving from 14,000ft or, climb 270 metres to the top of Skypoint on the Q1 resort building.

Set a new personal best by participating in the Gold Coast Marathon and test your endurance while taking in the pristine coastline. Or, play a round of golf at some of the world’s most picturesque golf courses.
