Fancy a holiday in the beautiful Gold Coast that combines all your favourite things – glitz, glamour and glitter?

Here are some fantastic experiences to include as part of your getaway – these are sure to thrill your senses and provide a host of memories for years to come.

Experience a view like no other

Surfers Paradise, located in the heart of the Gold Coast, is known for its sparkling skyline.

There are a few places in the city that will have you diving into your bag to find your camera in order to capture these perfect views.

SkyPoint is one of these places and you will be able to see not just a spectacular 360 degree panorama of the city but also revel in lush views of the tropical mountains and hinterland that stretch out below your feet.

If you are brave, you could also try the SkyPoint Climb, the highest external building climb Down Under. The experience lasts around 90 minutes from beginning to end.

Or you could enjoy one of the fastest elevator rides that takes you up to level 77 of the SkyPoint Observation building. From there, climb just under 300 stairs to reach the summit, 97.7 metres above ground.

Wine and dine with the who's who of the Gold Coast

Once you've had a glimpse of the views from the SkyPoint Observation Deck, you may be in the mood to look at the stars – and we don't just mean those orbs in the sky.

Some of the best places for celeb spotting are at the restaurants in the area that have received a Chef's Hat.

Absynthe is one restaurant in Surfers Paradise that has achieved awards from the Australian Good Food and Travel Guide. It features French cuisine with a modern twist.

You could also try Salt Bar and Grill, opened by celebrity chef Luke Mangan. Here you can expect exceptional service and delicious meals.

Shop til you drop 

Looking to add some sparkle to your wardrobe? Why not jump in your Surfers Paradise rental car and head over to Broadbeach? 

This avenue is lined with all the boutique shops your heart could desire, and once you've had your fill of looking at jewels, handbags, clothes and whatever else takes your fancy, you can head into a cafe for a restorative coffee.

Dance up a storm

Still got plenty of energy left? Why not visit some of the hottest nightclubs on the glitter strip? Make sure you look your best as you can often spot many a star in the area.

SinCity is one of the premier nightclubs available and its reputation is sure to follow through. Gilded walls, velvet furnishings and chandeliers will have you feeling you're living the high life.

You could also head along to Stingray to get a feel for Californian glamour. Check out the designer furniture and pop art as you sip on a tasty cocktail.
