So, our trip to Gold Coast has been confirmed now. Yay! We’ll be going there for 9 days during the September school holidays.
I managed to convince V not to go on package tour. I’ve been on package tour twice to Japan and China. I experienced the same ‘rush factor’ and the inconvenience from travelling in a big group. Moreover, this time we’re travelling with a kid in tow who takes his own sweet time to eat and walk. I can’t imagine how many times I have to repeat “hurry up” if we’re going on package tour.
Once the decision was made, we’ve been frantically searching for hotels and planning for our itinerary. After three late nights, our itinerary is almost completed now and it includes:
- Tangalooma Island Resort
- Sea World
- Dream World
- King Tutt’s Putt Putt
- Lunch River Cruise
- Surfers Paradise Beachfront Markets
- Pacific Fair
- Harbour Town Outlet
- Paradise Country Farm
- Centro Surfers Paradise
- Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary
We’re still undecided whether to stay in a hotel or apartment, and whether we’re going to self-drive or take the public transport. I can’t wait to take a break from work and have some family bonding time.
If you have any recommendations, please drop me a comment. I love to hear from you!
