There are some destinations made for the sun and an active lifestyle. The Gold Coast, with 300 sunny days a year is a classics spot for enjoying the outdoors and even shopping combines outdoor areas. The question becomes, what do you do when there is constantly rain?!
While it would be nice to order up some sun don’t let the rain spoil your days. Here are 5 top things to do on the Gold Coast on a rainy day:
Indoor Rock Climbing
My very favourite. Right in the middle of the Gold Coast at West Burleigh you will find Paramount Adventures with 850 square metres of walls more than 11 metres high. And the best part is that they have options for all levels, from begginers to experts. You will soon forget if it is cold, raining and grey as you challenge your physical and mental capacity to get to the top. It’s challenging but lots of fun!
Gold Coast Art Centre
No, the Gold Coast is not just about beach culture. At the Art Centre you can grab a glass of wine and catch a movie, laugh at the comedians at the Basement or enjoy one of the top national or international art exhibitions on tour all under the same roof!
Indoor Go Karting
This is cool. This place will get your adrenaline moving with up to 12 karts allowed on the track at the same time.
The Gold Coast has been influenced by its tourists and a wonderful array of people who have fallen in love with the place. It may come as a surprise that this city is a bit of a foodie heaven. Nothing beats cold wet days like comfort food and a red wine.
Nothing says relaxation better then a warm mocha or coffee and the Goldy has many great spots to challenge the coffee connoisseur critique. Even near the famous surf spots around Snapper Rocks, you will find cafes like Bambi Deluxe tucked away that serve an excellent cup of coffee. If you have the time, why not grab a board game at the Black Coffee Lyrics and check out the live music on a comfy couch with the sound of rain.
