Australian Women’s Weekly NZ - - TRAVEL -


Dur­ing our early Oc­to­ber visit we were lucky enough to spot whales while on our morn­ing beach walks. We hadn’t re­alised that the Gold Coast was known as “hump­back high­way” from June un­til around Novem­ber, when hump­back whales mi­grate from Antarc­tica, putting on spec­tac­u­lar shows just off­shore. There are view­ing spots on land, or if you want to get up close take one of the many whale watch­ing tours.


If you have kids in tow, Movieworld is a must. Thrilling rides, fa­mous film char­ac­ters to pho­to­graph, and plenty of pa­rades and shows. Go early and plan to spend the day.
