Why The Gold Coast Is Great For Family Holidays

The family holiday! Always such a great time away with your loved ones, sharing precious moments, creating memories that will last a lifetime… especially if you get it wrong!

It is so hard to find that perfect place for a holiday. Somewhere with the perfect mix of relaxation and activities that your whole family will enjoy. Younger children need age-appropriate activities designed just for them, while your older children need things to do that will keep them entertained happily for hours.

Then, if you have teenagers, they need to actually look forward to visiting, without commenting continually that they don’t want to go because it is all old-fashioned, boring or just plain dull!

This is without even contemplating anything that you, as the parents and provider of this family holiday, will be able to enjoy.

Well, come a little closer as I let you all in on a little secret … Coomera Houseboats knows the perfect family holiday spot that will suit your whole family – and whoever else you want to bring!

“Where is it?”I hear you all asking… Well, maybe the title of this blog has given you a slight hint? Yes – Come on down to the Gold Coast and your family holiday will be something you all love and want to remember!

Enjoy The Gold Coast On A Coomera Houseboat

Along with the fantastic events, attractions and venues above, the absolute best thing about holidaying on the Gold Coast with your family, is when you do it in style – aboard a Coomera Houseboat.

A Coomera Houseboat holiday is one of the best family adventures on the Gold Coast you can have. With houseboats that have up to 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and areas where parents can hideaway, there is the perfect vessel waiting for your family.

You can use our private jetty as a luxury base if you want to explore the local theme parks or Hinterland, then it’s a quick drive back for you to relax on your houseboat after a fun-filled day, and get ready for the next adventure. 

Once you have exhausted the local venues and attractions you can add some excitement to your family holiday by heading out into the waterways to enjoy even more of what the Gold Coast has to offer, including:

  • Great fishing and crabbing from the boats or from our tenders
  • Swimming or snorkelling in one of the many beautiful sandy beaches in our cruising area
  • Exploring the uninhabited surf side beaches on South Stradbroke Island
  • Bushwalking along many of the tracks on South Stradbroke Island
  • Cooking up a family BBQ on the houseboat
  • Island-hop around the spectacular Gold Coast waterways – our staff can give you directions to the spots that the locals love!

The benefits of visiting a gorgeous spot like Gold Coast’s Stradbroke Island is that not only can you enjoy the beautiful island for free, but there are also some paid activities you can try to up the adrenalin factor.
