Boasting the moniker ‘Australia’s Playground’, the Gold Coast bustles with around-the-clock activity, 24 hours a day seven days a week.
While most popular drawcards cater to kids and families, many are specifically tailored to accommodate and entertain the male sex. Home to lively hubs like Surfers Paradise, Coolangatta and Broadbeach – which offer activities like paint balling, clay bird shooting, party boats, party buses, go karting, pub crawls and beach barbeques – the Gold Coast is Queensland’s ultimate destination for bachelor parties, boys’ clubs and birthday celebrations.
