There's no better place to be in summer! The Gold Coast has so much to do and see, which is why spending a scorching hot day doing some fun water activities is a great idea! Lying on the beach is cool, but so is paddling around canals, hitting theme parks and being propelled into the air by a 20m hose. Interested yet? Check out what you can do to cool down on a scorching hot Gold Coast day:
Hit the theme parks
Wet'n'Wild is the ultimate theme park to cool down in! They have some of the biggest and most EXTREME water slides in Australia! Whether you prefer something slow and steady like relaxing in a tube floating around Calypso Beach or getting an adrenaline rush on the Tornado with its 15 metre platform drop and 40 metre long tunnel - there's something for every member of the family!
Jet boating for the adrenaline junkies
Paradise Jet Boating is a mix of thrill & adventure and scenery & excitement. You'll experience 360° spins and high speed drifting while exploring the Gold Coast's waterways! You'll cruise past Sea World, have a peek on the multi-million dollar waterfront mansions and be on the lookout for marine wildlife! It's a must-do for everyone, whether you're a local or visiting the Gold Coast!
Hire a stand up paddle board
Stand up paddle boarding has to be the hot new water activity! The best part is you can do it right here on a scorching hot day on the Gold Coast! SUP in Paradise lets you hire a board for per hour, half day or a full day - here, you can paddle around the canals near Budds Beach. You're bound to love it!
Cruise around the waterways in a round boat
Coasting Around is a super unique and fun way to experience the Gold Coast waterways. This round boat is fitted with a BBQ, you can listen to your own music and you can have some beverages why steering your own round boat (which you don't need a licence for!). It's the perfect way to soak up a beautiful sunny afternoon with your mates!
Blast from the water in a jetpack
For those who like to live life a little bit more extreme, you need to try out Jet Pack Adventures! You'll be strapped into a backpack unit and propelled into the air by a 20m hose! You can steer left & right and go up & down, so you have full control! It's inspired by James Bond, so you know it has to be cool!
