Haven Magazine - - UPFRONT -

The Gold Coast is one of the most per­fect places to take in the spring school hol­i­days - Warmth, sun­shine, fresh air, salt­wa­ter, relaxation. So, where are some of the best fam­ily-friendly places to spend time on the Gold Coast?

GOLD COAST CITY COUN­CIL MAYOR, TOM TATE: “The Broad­wa­ter, ei­ther on a boat or re­lax­ing along the fore­shore. The wa­ter is calm for lit­tle ones and there’s al­ways so much go­ing on.” GOLD COAST SUNS CEO, MARK EVANS: “The walk from Nobby Beach to Burleigh.” AU­THOR AND FIT­NESS MODEL, SO­PHIE GUIDOLIN: “That’s a hard one. We love the fact that we have theme park passes, and with four kids it is easy en­ter­tain­ment that they all love. We are very much into the movies or a bowl­ing ses­sion too. Be­tween Septem­ber and March you will find us at the surf club for Nip­pers ev­ery week­end.” OLYMPIC GOLD MEDAL WIN­NING CY­CLIST, SARA CARRIGAN: “The His­toric River­mill at Nerang is fab, hang­ing out on the river­bank or the ve­ran­dah over­look­ing the beauty of the Coomera River. The kid­dies can run, play and en­joy a chat and a pat with the an­i­mals.” CHAN­NEL SEVEN PER­SON­AL­ITY, JESS SKARRATT: “The Vil­lage Mar­kets. There’s some­thing for ev­ery mem­ber of the fam bam. Free­man’s Or­ganic Farm. Grab your fresh pro­duce and a home­made treat and cof­fee and set up your pic­nic rug to take in the killer views of Cur­rumbin Val­ley. And Met­ri­con Sta­dium on Gold Coast SUNS game days for a great spot for the fam­ily to hang!”
