A different way to get a chance to see around the gold coast cheap and you get to see the rich and famous homes that you would normally not get anywhere near

My husband and I took our grandson on the Aqua duck in Surfers Paradise just recently. The ride and river drive would have been soooo good if not for hearing the driver and the tour guide debating most of the journey and nearly getting into an argument. We loved the ride but the commentating was rushed so that they could... More

For something a little different and quirky I recommend this tour. My boys are 15 and still enjoyed this tour purely from the engineering side. They were fascinated by the size of the engine and how difficult it was to get the vehicle registered and also what the captain had to do to be able to pilot/drive the vehicle. The... More
