Gold Coast Spring:
Spring has officially sprung on the Gold Coast and we are so excited! The Gold Coast is a great place to live in general, but there is something special about Spring… The weather starts to warm up and it is the best time of year to get out and enjoy the best that the Gold Coast has to offer.
Gold Coast beaches draw crowds from all over the world for their beautiful white, soft sand and clear, warm water and surfable waves, but there are so many other activities to be enjoyed all over the coast… Find below, 10 things you have to do on the Coast this Spring!
- The sunflowers are in full bloom which means a trip south to Cudgen’s Farm & Co is a must! Shop the organic fruit and vegetables on this beautiful Kingscliff farm and grab a selfie among the gorgeous field of sunflowers.
- Grab your family or your partner and whisk them away for a magical day at Tambourine mountain. Enjoy the trails and swimming in the waterfall before finding a magical spot to enjoy a picnic in nature.
