Enjoy the Gold Coast on a rainy day!

Even though we are in the sunshine state, you just never know when mother nature might open the heavens on your holiday. Don’t let this dampen your spirits, there are loads of fun activities the Gold Coast has to offer if rain does happen to strike.

The Gold Coast is a delight for shopaholics! Robina Town Centre is situated just 10 minutes drive from Broadbeach and 15 minutes from Surfers Paradise. It is arguably the Gold Coast’s best place to shop and be entertained, completely indoors and in style. The centre has recently undergone a $400 million dollar expansion and is home to the coast’s only David Jones department store as well as Myer and over 350 specialty stores.

Robina Town Centre has its very own entertainment complex to keep the kid’s amused. The newly completely complex features a bowling alley, laser skirmish arena and cinemas. This really is the perfect place for teenager’s to unwind while you enjoy the fashion stores and grab a coffee or a naughty treat at Max Brenner Chocolate Bar.

If you are staying in Broadbeach and don’t wish to venture there are loads of options right at your fingertips. You can enjoy the shopping at Pacific Fair Shopping Centre around half of the complex is indoors and there is a cinema, you might also wish to poke around the boutiques in the Oasis Shopping Centre. Once you’re done here you could slip across to Conrad Jupiter’s Casino for an affordable meal, a show or to try your luck!

Centro Mall at Surfers Paradise is another rainy day favorite! The bowling alley there is always a hit and the Timezone gaming complex is enormous. The best value at Timezone is their unlimited games passes, this means you pay a fee from around $25 which includes uncapped plays on certain games, the packages usually include a game of putt putt and laser skirmish. Keep an eye on their websites for current specials.

Surfers Paradise is also home to loads of other indoor tourist attractions other popular ones include: The Wax Museum, Infinity, Ripley’s Believe It Or Not, Dracula’s Haunted House and many more!

If you are looking for something a little more cultural, why not spend the morning admiring the Gold Coast Art Gallery at Bundall, the Gold Coast Art Centre run regular events, exhibitions and shows. There is a coffee shop onsite so take your time and enjoy all the Gold Coast art scene has to offer.
