I'm visiting Australia with my 13 year old son next August and we plan to spend one week on the Gold Coast as part of a 3 week holiday (which takes in Sydney, Melbourne, Uluru and GBF). I have a number of questions which I'd be really grateful if you could help me with.
2. The theme parks are going to be the highlight for my son, but I'm also interested in Tangalooma Island as he loves Dolphins. Is the resort a good place to go in August, as I'm assuming it won't necessarily be beach weather?
3. If we stay at Broadbeach, how far is it to Surfer's Paradise, and is there good/easy parking at the theme parks? Is there enough at Broadbeach to entertain a 13 year old in August?
Many thanks for your help.
