When you stay at the Blue Sky Holiday Apartments in Broadbeach, you are in the heart of the Gold Coast and there are heaps of great family activities that you can enjoy and they are right on your doorstep.

The Gold Coast Regional Botanic Gardens

Gold Coast botanical gardens

If your family enjoys nature trips and appreciating the great outdoors, then taking them to the Gold Coast Regional Botanic Gardens would be perfect. Kids will be amazed at the different kinds of plants and the vibrant colors of some of the hard-to-find flowers.

See the butterfly garden and marvel at their colorful wings and gentle flight. You can even bring your pet along and take them to the off-leash area or take your kids to have a blast at the playground.


Infinity attraction

Many are impressed with the unique environments featured at Infinity. Take your time to indulge your senses and be immersed in the intricate illusions featured in its 20 rooms.

Equally intriguing music is played to match these illusions to make the experience more out-of-this-world. Remember that this might be more appealing to kids over 8 years of age.

Try Jetboating


Satisfy your need for speed when you get on a Jetboat Extreme thrill ride with the kids. This is a high adrenaline experience that will excite both you and your kids, as it’s not every day that they can get around the city like a movie star on a boat.

Enjoy a little fun under the sun like never before and see the city sights in the 55-minute tour with the option to be dropped off at at Seaworld.

David Fleay Wildlife Sanctuary

Wildlife Reserve Burleigh Heads

Bring your family to the Wildlife Sanctuary and tell them about David Fleay’s success in breeding platypuses in captivity. It will be a good learning experience for kids and they might find a new appreciation for preserving wildlife.

After hearing about his efforts, enjoy going around and see different species that should also be protected in the future.

Dracula’s Haunted House

Draculas Haunted House

If your family enjoys a bit of a scare, you should definitely bring them over to Dracula’s Haunted House. It features 5 storeys of horror to entertain everyone and to keep them on their toes for the next surprise.

Don’t forget that this might be a bit too much for the little ones and the claustrophobic, so make sure everyone you bring is up for a spooky time.

Wax Museum
