Things to see and do on the Gold Coast

Gold Coast is just made for families, fun and sun! It's well known as one of the most popular destinations in Australia for local as well as international tourists to visit, whether that be for a a short weekend getaway or a week long stay to make the most of all the activities on offer in the region. 

When you think of Gold Coast, two things immediately come to mind - theme parks and beaches! 

Sea World, Dreamworld, Wet'n'Wild, Warner Bros Movie World - you're really spoilt for choice when it comes to theme parks. If you've got the time, why not purchase a multi park and day pass that will let you enjoy more than just one!? Thrifty are in fact the official vehicle provider for Village Roadshow Theme Parks so you could enjoy even great deals when you book your rental car with Thrifty and head out to the theme parks. Also autoclub members can save on accommodation at NRMA Treasure Island Holiday Resort on the Gold Coast stay 4 nights and only pay for 3 or save 10% on shorter stays. 

Be sure to check out the specials on offer at our Coolangatta Thrifty store as we may have theme park deals available at the time of your car rental booking (these are always popular and have limited availability so get in quick!). 

For some fun in the sun, you can't go past a relaxing day at one of Gold Coast's famous sandy beaches. Main beach and Surfers Paradise are a couple of the more popular beaches but there are also many smaller ones well worth the visit. Broadbeach for instance is great for some time in the water as well a picnic or BBQ in the park. It's also got a children's playground for the little ones to run wild.  

With so many places to go, your trusty Thrifty hire car will certainly be put to good use!
