Trying to work out which activities in Surfers Paradise are suitable for the Under 7s is often a bit hard.
There are plenty of things to do, but which ones are appropriate for younger kids?
Here are a couple of suggestions if you are visiting Surfers with little ones.
Probably the top activity has to be time on the beach at Surfers. This can be a great place to build sand castles, boogie board, swim between the flags and teach the little ones some surf safety in the warm ocean waters off the Gold Coast. If you plan to spend time on the beach with the younger ones, I recommend you look for accommodation very close to the beach so that you can walk there. Trying to park can be expensive and you will still have to walk!
Timezone is a suitable for kids and adults, but is it good for the little ones? Timezone is in the Centro Surfers Paradise on Cavill Mall and there is certainly plenty for the very little ones to enjoy, from a variety of arcade games practicing hand eye co-ordination, mini basketball, bowling, mini golf and dance style games. 2 hours would be the limit of attention for a little one here, the bigger kids and adults can spend much more time! Even local families include Timezone on their list of Surfers Paradise things to do every school holidays! The kids just love it!
Aquaduck is a tour on an amphibious bus that drives into the water and takes you around on a quick tour through the canals and broadwater. Young kids, in particular, enjoy the duck quackers! This is a rather unusual cruise where the kids will be entertained on one level, whilst Mum and Dad can get to see a bit of the area! The tour picks you up from either your Surfers Paradise accommodation or meeting points in central Surfers.
King Tutt’s Putt Putt is a mini golf centre that has 3 theme courses African Jungle, Egyptian or Jurassic Dinosaurs. With two indoor courses this activity is suitable in any type of weather. There aren’t many young children who don’t love the opportunity to try mini golf. There is another mini golf course near Adrenalin Park, but that one is totally outside, so King Tutt’s can be useful to know about for those rainy or really hot days. Plus the kids love the themed courses!
