Snorkelling and scuba diving
The Gold Coast is unparalleled when it comes to fish diversity and inshore diving opportunities. Swim with pink whip rays and white-spotted guitarfish in the Gold Coast Seaway, or uncover history at the wreck of the Scottish Prince. The sea has a lot to offer!
For a more tranquil and relaxed excursion, explore the Gold Coast ocean in areas such as Tallebudgera Creek, Jabiru Island, and The Broadwater. Most destinations allow you to settle on shore for a little picnic and to truly harness the surrounding beauty.
Soar into the sky or dive headfirst into the water as far as you’re willing to go by flyboarding in the Main Beach area. If you’re an adrenaline junkie or looking for a unique experience, this is definitely for you!
There are bountiful opportunities to whale watch on the Gold Coast, including along Surfers Paradise. Witness the energy of the humpback whale as it soars into the air with refreshments and food galore aboard!
Surfing is a traditional activity in Australia and is offered at a variety of locations on the Gold Coast. From Coolangatta and Burleigh to The Spit, surf the ocean waves and channel your inner-surfer like a true Australian.
Navigate your own way along the Gold Coast on a stand-up paddleboard, which allows you to go at your own pace along the vast seas. From Currumbin Creek and Burleigh to Tallebudgera Creek and Kingscliff, you can relax and tan in style!
We acknowledge the Traditional Owners of Country throughout Australia and recognise their continuing custodianship of the land, waters and culture for over 60,000 years. We pay our respects to them and their elders past and present. We are privileged to learn from them in the way we care for and share Australia’s diverse nature and culture, and we strive to walk humbly in the footsteps of those who have walked these paths before us.
