Couple take a gentle kayak tour through Surfers Paradise

Explore the Gold Coast Waterways

Queenslanders are a lucky bunch with moderate temperatures all year round and water sports are a great way to discover a different side of the Gold Coast. Hidden behind the beaches and rising skyline are a series of canals and beautiful waterfront homes. In fact, you may be surprised to learn the Gold Coast has nine times more waterways than Venice, Italy.

A 90 minute Surfers Paradise Sunset Kayaking Tour is a wonderful way to witness a magical sunset during a gentle paddle along the calm waterways. For those who desire a more thrilling experience, it’s hard to look past a turbocharged Gold Coast Jet Boating experience. The exhilarating jet boat ride will have passengers racing past stunning scenery with 360-degree spins along the way.

Above the water’s surface, you can soar high in the sky on a solo or tandem parasail or join a guided jet ski safari touring secluded islands and waterways where the speed limits don't apply. Dive below the surface though, and you’ll uncover a magical marine reserve where a variety of Green Sea Turtles, stingrays and tropical fish play during a Cook Island Scuba Diving Tour.

With a personal guide behind the wheel, you can sit back and enjoy being driven to a variety of secret locations. Pack some comfortable walking shoes and enjoy a quiet moment walking under the treetop canopy of the world’s largest sub-tropical rainforest.

Mt Tamborine is one of the charming villages located in the mountainside with a breathtaking Skywalk and a number of boutique wineries and distilleries. If you’d prefer to spend a day treating the tastebuds rather than hitting the trails, a Gold Coast Winery Tour with a gourmet lunch will leave you with a full belly and plenty of fresh wine samples to taste throughout the day.
