FOR most of us this weekend is a long one, with a public holiday on Friday.

If you’re not sure what to get up to, this our pick of the top 5 things to do this long weekend!

It’s the reason we all have a public holiday on Friday, so why not head along to the Gold Coast Show and have some fun!  This year, the show is being held at the Gold Coast Turf Club. There are a whole lot of new attractions and entertainment on offer to suit all ages and on Sunday the turf club will also be putting on a special race day!  For the full details on everything happening, visit[/signoff]

The Gold Coast has been experiencing the best surf in months this week so if you haven’t had a chance to get out there due to work commitments, grab a board, a wettie and get out there and make the most of it. [/signoff]

Load up the car and head up the mountain with the family for a picnic and a bit of exploring. Park up the car at one of the many vantage points and have a picnic overlooking the Gold Coast. Then drive into town and check out some of the kooky shops and treat yourself to bit of fudge and cheese.[/signoff]

The whales have been heading back down south for quite a few weeks, so if you haven’t yet spotted them, this weekend is one of the last opportunities you will get to see these glorious creatures. If you can’t afford to book a boat trip, grab a pair of binoculars and head to one of the many vantage points along the Coast. Our favourite whale watching spots are Point Danger, Kirra Hill and Burleigh Headland.[/signoff]
