For your Gold Coast family holiday on Palm Beach QLD this spring, here are all the local outdoor family activities that you shouldn’t leave out:
Paddle Board on Palm Beach
Palm Beach is on your doorstep at Royal Palm Palm Beach Resort, and it promises to be the focal point of your stay. Standing out from its neighbours with gorgeous white sand and crystal-clear blue sea, Palm Beach is a laid-back tropical oasis that’s perfect for families, offering both relaxation and leisure whatever your mood.
Kick back on the sand, pitch a volleyball and get on the ocean with a paddle-board, where you’ll be met by beautiful views of both the Currumbin headland and Burleigh Head National Park. On the beachfront, dine al fresco in the spring warmth at one of the many ocean-facing cafés and restaurants.
Picnic at Palm Beach Parklands
A short walk from Palm Beach, the Palm Beach Parklands offer a whole new atmosphere with gorgeous tropical scenery in all directions. Shallow paddling waters, boardwalk strolling paths and shady rainforest trees provide all the right ways to relax with the kids, and there isn’t a better spot to go near our Palm Beach accommodation when your family is ready for a change of pace.
At Palm Beach Parkland, make sure to locate Treasure Island Pirate Playground. This waterfront sandy playground boasts a large kid-friendly pirate ship, which guarantees to keep little ones busy for hours on end. Also featuring public benches and grassy lawns, you can prep your family picnic as the kids burn energy and work up an appetite.
Kayak in Currumbin Creek
When it’s time for an adventure, head to Currumbin Creek – just minutes from the Palm Beach Parklands. This lush rainforest creek is one of the most popular natural attractions on the Gold Coast, where all sorts of exciting outdoor activities promise a full day out of memorable family bonding.
Pack another picnic to enjoy on the waterfront then hire a kayak or boat to bob down the creek and take in the surrounding hinterland scenery. Currumbin Creek is also a prime location for fishing, making it a great spot to teach the kids how to cast a line.
Climb Elephant Rock Currumbin Beach
Currumbin Beach is a two-minute drive from our Palm Beach resort, so if you and the kids are keen to discover another beach, there isn't a more convenient destination. Nestled between two iconic headlands, Currumbin Beach is a worthwhile experience for surfing and swimming, with numerous quaint cafés to enjoy just seconds from the sand.
Elephant Rock on Currumbin Beach is hard to miss – this natural rock formation can be climbed by all ages, offering a unique vantage point over the beach and towards Currumbin Alley and Burleigh Head National Park. Don’t forget your camera!
Get Wild at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary
No holiday with us at Royal Palms Palm Beach is complete without a visit to Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary. This top Gold Coast attraction is a wildlife adventure fit for spring, with a huge residence of fascinating Australian wildlife and more than enough attractions, shows and outdoor activities to see and do over a full family day out.
Get there early to absorb everything the park has to offer, from the unforgettable Segway Safari to the adrenaline-rushing TreeTop Challenge. You’ll be in awe at the park’s wonderful animals, which are well looked after in lush natural habitats with unmissable opportunities to feed and get up-close.
Find the Currumbin Rock Pools
Put on some comfortable shoes and head into Currumbin Valley with the kids – a comfortable bushwalking experience into the Gold Coast hinterland with rich flora, riverside paths, cascading waterfalls and more.
If you’re feeling adventurous, go a little further to find the Currumbin Rock Pools, which offer a rewarding experience to complete your hinterland walk. Relax and take in the scenery or get wet in the pools – whichever you do, this relatively hidden Gold Coast gem is a fantastic experience to add to your holiday.
Spend a Day in Burleigh Heads
North of Palm Beach, Burleigh Heads Gold Coast is a popular holiday destination that has another memorable day out in-store for your family near our Palm Beach Gold Coast resort.
Surf the famous surf break on Burleigh Beach then visit Burleigh Head National Park for an exotic adventure. A unique experience awaits on each different walking path, where you’ll be surrounded by lush rainforest with colourful birdlife to spot and several park lookouts offering views over Burleigh Beach and the Pacific Ocean.
