Many of us have a girlfriend who does not live nearby or a girlfriend whom we absolutely love to spend time with. For either of these instances a great idea to make the most of spending time with such great friends is by organising a girl’s weekend away.

There are many fantastic reasons to have a girl’s weekend away. Maybe you have not seen each other for some time or it’s someone’s birthday. Perhaps you just want a good old-fashioned girly sleepover with no boys! What could be better?

The perfect girl’s weekend destination

The Gold Coast is a beautiful destination for a girl’s weekend. There is plenty to see and do and plenty of beaches and parks to relax and not do anything. The choice of what to do is entirely up to the girls.

There are many restaurants on the Gold Coast that offer fine cuisine or something quick and easy to grab on the way. Many tourist attractions such as the Ripley’s Believe it or Not museum, Infinity or any one of the theme parks like Dreamworld or Sea World make this destination an exciting place to visit.

If late nights and dancing is your thing, then there are plenty of bars and clubs to enjoy with music to suit all tastes. When you’re tired of all the excitement you can spend time relaxing by the pool, on a beach, or visit one of the many wonderful day spas—the perfect girly expedition.

What would a girl’s weekend be without a shopping spree? Pacific Fair, Niecon Plaza and Harbour Town are just a few of the many shopping complexes the Gold Coast has to offer and there is sure to be a bargain found somewhere.

If you’re not looking for all things girly you might like to go on a bushwalk in the beautiful Gold Coast Hinterland, visit the Natural Arch in the evening and see the amazing glow worms. One thing is for sure, you won’t be short of fun things to do.

Getting about
If you’re on a girl’s weekend away you will no doubt want to fit in as much as possible while you’re there. Public transport can be bothersome and taxis can be expensive. So, what’s the best way to get about the Gold Coast on your weekend away? By taking advantage of car hire, of course. There are some fantastic deals available on near-new cars and all are reliable and safe.
