Active and Healthy Gold Coast
Every year, the GoldCoast City Council organises a series of FREE or LOW COST activities to help Gold Coasters and visitors prioritise their health and wellbeing. The Active and Healthy Gold Coast program includes hundreds of sport, recreation, fitness and wellness activities to choose from at any time. There’s yoga, all ability sports, boxing, craft, music, educational opportunities and workshops, tai chi, water fitness, water sports, pilates, healthy eating, skate and scooter fun, and nature-based explorations.
School Holiday Activities Gold Coast
But our favourite time to take advantage of the Gold Coast Active and Healthy program is when we are planning to join in all the super fun school holiday activities Gold Coast has to offer. Ned joined the Griffith Centre for Coastal Management for a half-day session and Jack (and Roam the Gnome) tagged along too.
Set up in a beachfront park in Burleigh Heads under shaded tents, the team from Griffith University started the program with a “Learn and Discovery” activity where the kids had to identify a bunch of specimens including starfish, shells and other ocean-dwelling creatures and objects. Next, the group of about 12 children were led down the beach to participate in a Discovery Walk to observe the dunes, and play a fun game at the beach. Last up, all the children made their very own Rainbow Sand Candle by scooping different coloured sands into a jar along with a variety of shells for decoration.
A morning of hands-on fun, and it was totally FREE! What an awesome thing for anyone travelling with kids.
The Active and Healthy Gold Coast school holiday programs get better each time too. It’s our quest to book into as many fun things as we can and explore all the different parts of the Gold Coast while we are at it too.
Kids Activities Gold Coast
Our number one tip is to book early to make sure you secure a spot for your kids in the workshops and activities they’d like to join in. The best way to know when the new program is being released is by being on the Active and Healthy Gold Coast Mailing List. Hint: It’s this month! Click here to join.
Remember, you don’t need to be a resident to join in! The Active and Healthy Gold Coast School holiday programs, and the normal programs, are open to everyone, including family travel lovers. See you there!
