It’s no secret that there is a whole heap of fun things to do on the Gold Coast,
but a lot of these activities can be quite costly! When the budget gets tight, it can
feel like you have no option but to sit at home. As it turns out, there are actually
plenty of things to do on the Gold Coast that won’t break the bank!
Visit the many beaches
If there is one thing the Gold Coast is famous for it’s having spectacular beaches.
Start at the top and work your way down the coast! Take a dip at every beach
from Main Beach to Coolangatta, you wont be disappointed!
Currumbin Rock Pools
As well as a fabulous coastline, the Gold Coast also boasts an impressive
hinterland. Natural beauties like the Currumbin Rock Pools are well within your
reach. On a hot day these natural pools are the perfect place to take a dip! If the
weather isn’t right, they are a pretty location to explore just the same.

wondering. This wacky attraction is available all from the incredible price of

Paddle boarding has been a craze on the Gold Coast for the last few years! This
water sport requires a bit of balance and little physical effort. Once you master
the art of paddle boarding you will find the time extremely relaxing! The
best part? Paddle Boards are only around $10-$15 an hour to hire! (trust us, you
wont need more than an hour).
If it’s a weekend you are looking to amuse yourself for, then there are no
shortage of markets on the Gold Coast! While entry is free you may find it hard to
keep your hand out of your pocket here, so only enter if you have a little
willpower! Even just for a look the Gold Coast markets are something to see,
usually with a little entertainment from local bands, adding to their value!
Whether its Surfers Paradise on Sunday, Wednesday or Friday,
Broadbeach, Burleigh or Coolangatta you are sure to find a bargain!
