    Our Summer Bucket List

    I'm sharing our Family Summer Bucket List today, our go-to list of things we want to do over the Summer! Whenever we have a ‘what shall we do today’ moment, we can refer to our trusty list and tick something else off! Family Bucket Lists are a great way of getting through school holiday boredom, but also as a way of reminding us to stop and do some of the more simple things in life. Enjoy!

    Rainy day activities for Gold Coast Kids

    Rainy days are usually few and far between on the Gold Coast, so when the rain does set in, we’re often scrambling for indoor activities for kids to keep occupied. I’ve rounded up some of the best spots on the Gold Coast to eat, activities to do and things to see that are indoors, family and kid friendly, and out of the rain!

    Easy Gold Coast walks to take with the kids

    The Gold Coast is home to heaps of fabulous spots to take the family for a walk! Now more than ever, families are looking for options that get them out of the house, but also allow them to stick to the outdoors and keep away from the crowds. I've pulled together a list of 16 places to take an easy walk with the kids, and many of them would be perfect for bikes or scooters, most have a playground involved, and some even have animals to spot!

    Home of the Arts (HOTA), Surfers Paradise

    HOTA is the Gold Coast's home for all things creative! Formally known as Home of the Arts, HOTA is a cultural precinct bringing people together. Here you can experience shows in the theatres, performances on the outdoor stage, exhibitions in the Gallery, immersive events, workshops and more. If the arts aren't your thing, the parklands around HOTA are hugely popular. Whether you're visiting the Farmers Market each Sunday, swimming in Evandale Lake, playing on the playground or relaxing with a picnic under the trees by the river, you're bound to enjoy a day out at HOTA.
