Gold Coast in Lonely Planet’s Top 10 Family-Friendly Destinations

GOLD Coast theme parks are among three Queensland destinations travel giant Lonely Planet believes are the most family-friendly in Australia.

The other Sunshine State destinations include Far North Queensland & the Great Barrier Reef and Brisbane.

“Broad, bronzed and open-skied, Australia is built for family travel – a dazzlingly diverse country strewn with tropical reefs, surf beaches and snowy heights,” Lonely Planet says.


“The vast distances between A and B can test parental patience, but with some savvy planning you can focus on the delights of exploring with people much closer to ground level than you are.”
