To get a sense of what makes Gold Coast tick, pull on some comfortable shoes and explore surrounding areas like Currumbin, Bundall, and Benowa.
Do make the effort to see some of the nearby museums and galleries, which help make this region such a rewarding holiday destination. In particular, you should make sure you check out the Arts Centre Gold Coast in Surfers Paradise.
When it’s time escape the city, visit the nearby outdoor areas. There are no shortage of green escapes, so why don’t you go out and enjoy the Gold Coast Regional Botanic Gardens in Benowa.
Work on your backswing at the Palm Meadows Golf Course in Carrara and the Surfers Paradise Golf Club in Clear Island Waters.
Sports fans visiting Sorrento should get tickets for Metricon Stadium, Carrara to see the Gold Coast Suns playing visiting rivals. On game days follow the procession of red, gold and blue, to the stadium, then after the final siren sounds, join fans at a nearby pub, bar or cafe and relive the action over a friendly drink or two.
To make sure you get the most out of Sorrento, consider booking your accommodation close by in one of the area’s charming bed and breakfast or hotel options. Whether you’re staying for a night or a few weeks it’s hard to go past the Hotel Grand Chancellor Surfers Paradise, the Mantra Circle on Cavill, Surfers Paradise, and the popular Mantra Legends Hotel, Surfers Paradise.
