Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Best known for its expanses of spectacular golden beaches, the Gold Coast of Queensland is a remarkably diverse destination with something for everyone. Your full-day tour begins with pickup in a comfortable, air-conditioned coach from Surfers Paradise in the late morning, or earlier morning pickup in Brisbane. Soak up passing sights as your driver-guide shares informative commentary, and stop for an hour at Pacific Fair Shopping Centre to browse through the stores or grab morning tea (own expense).

Climb aboard a riverboat for a 2-hour crab trip along the Broadwater Canal that snakes through the Gold Coast wetlands. Glide past luxurious waterfront homes, 5-star hotels like the Palazzo Versace and the high-end retail complex of Marina Mirage. Learn how to catch a crab and enjoy your delicious seafood lunch in the tranquil waters. 

Back in the coach in the afternoon, admire the high-rise condos and wave breaks that frame Surfers Paradise as we make our way to visit Burleigh Heads. Here, enjoy a fantastic perspective on miles of long sandy beaches that stretch as far as the eye can see. 

We continue our day with a drive through the Gold Coast Region passing Varsity Lake, Robina and Advance Town as we admire the Gold Coast Hinterland. 

After soaking up the peaceful atmosphere of southern Queensland, relax on the drive north, where your tour concludes with drop-off back at your original departure point.

Unhappy Tourist

I have traveled extensively and taken about 15 tours on this trip and have to rate this one as a mixed bag there has to be something better. To be fair, the boat trip to catch crabs and stop on the island with the lunch was OK not good or great. People on the boat were informative and helpful. However, the Bus driver for the Gold Coast tour was not a tour guide. She drove the bus and did little more. We are driving down the Gold Coast with very little commentary I had no idea where we were going or any explanation of the area. An example is we drove for an hour and got to the Gold Coast and the first thing she said is: “There is a shipping center you can shop there if you like.” “This is the tallest building in Australia and you can go to the top if you like.” She brought us to Burleigh Heads – Her comments were “There is a nice National Park her formed by a volcano who’s lava flowed into the sea, Shopping on this street and there are always a lot of people standing around that juice shop” She then said she would drop us off and come meet us in an hour. If we asked a question she basically could not give us an answer. No history of the area and it was not until I looked up information after the trip I found out that it is a surfing Paradise, or that there is a walking trail from where we were to the Park with wonderful vistas. Our driver could be an exception but I would not recommend this tour company because of her.

Apologies for our new driver. She is still gaining confidence at delivery of her commentary. Once we've given the initial training it's simply not cost effective to roster two drivers on the same coach tour. I'm very sorry Peter and if you are on the coast again, perhaps I can put you on another tour free of charge.

What a wonderful trip out of Brisbane. The Gold Coast is beautiful. We had time to stroll the beaches and had a wonderful boat cruise down a canal to view the homes and the city from the water.

The driver was a little unorganized. I could not hear the driver and he talked constantly. We had to drop 2 sets of other people at different places. The discription on Viator said morning tea. Lunch on own, but no tea and lunch on boat left a lot to be desired. I enjoyed the rainforest walk and the natural bridge was very nice.
icon Response from Host , Jan 2020
Thank you for taking the time to review us. The morning tea is suggested (at own cost) when you're out and about in Surfers Paradise... and in particular at the top of Q1 Observation Deck. I'll make sure the Viator description makes this clear. Thank you for your help. I'd also love to see a salad buffet on board but this tour has been kept at a minimal price point for international guests and families Linda.

We decided like many people that we needed to see Surfer's Paradise. In retrospect this may have been a mistake. There is nothing wrong with this trip or the company running it! The place itself is very much a seaside resort and when we visited,"the schoolies" were in town so sections of the sea front and some roads were gated off by large metal barriers and there was no desire to stay for long. The cruise along the Broadwater Canal is interesting, particularly if you are into smart houses and house valuations. The stop at Natural Bridge is picturesque and must be very spectacular when there is more water in the streams. On the walk, you need to stay up with the driver whose commentary tended to start before the slower moving participants actually reached him. A perfectly adequate trip but not our favourite.
