AAT Kings has a range of full day tours ideal for travellers, with time to spare, who are venturing to the Gold Coast for The 2018 Commonwealth Games. The Gold Coast is renowned for its year-round sunshine, with plenty to see and do along the 70km stretch of stunning coastline. It’s also the gateway to one of Australia’s most biologically diverse regions, the lush rainforest-cloaked hinterland and an array of Australia’s iconic wildlife.
AAT Kings’ three Gold Coast Day Tours all depart from the Gold Coast.
O’Reilly’s & Lamington National Park
Sample Queensland-made wines and fresh local produce and take in the spectacular panoramic views of the Gold Coast from Tamborine Mountain. Escape to a nature lovers’ paradise, O’Reilly’s Rainforest Retreat for the treetop canopy walk to see ancient forests, discover historic logging tracks and hear the epic adventures of Queensland’s earliest settlers. Explore this sub-tropical rainforest and listen out for wonderful calls of native birds.
Crocodile Express & Australia Zoo
Explore the iconic Australia Zoo, made famous by the late Steve Irwin (Crocodile Hunter). See a collection of some of Australia’s most dangerous reptiles and over 1,200 animals. Discover the many exhibits including the brand-new Africa exhibit and daily wildlife shows and gasp at exotic animals such as giraffe, rhino and zebra living together on a wide open plain. Get up close and personal with some of Australia’s unique wildlife such as kangaroos, emus and snakes.
Enjoy Brisbane sights from land and water, and enjoy the sights of historic Brisbane, with its innovative and vibrant CBD. From a trendy cafe club culture to thriving shops, enjoy a lunch break at South Bank Parklands. In the afternoon visit Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary to hold a koala before a visit to Mt Coot-tha Lookout for a view of the city skyline to conclude a beautiful day.
MD of AAT Kings Hans Belle says: “The Gold Coast offers so much diversity and splendour beyond the sand and surf, and is just a stone’s throw away from some of Australia’s most renowned sights along with amazing flora and fauna. AAT Kings Day Tours are the perfect option for guests looking to explore some more of the sunny state as part of their trip to the Gold Coast and make the most out of a day of discovery.”
