First of all, I am sorry if this question has been asked before. I am going to Gold Coast this August with my family 5 adults and 2 children (7yrs and3 yrs). I want to know which area is the best to stay in Gold Coast? I am considering between Broad Beach, Surfers Paradise or Main Beach. We are going to rent a car so distance will not be a problem for us.
May I know which area is more live at night for us to do shopping or visit night market? We will be occupied on day time since we are going to visit theme parks (Sea World and Dream World) so I still have night time slot to fill in. We are going to visit Gold Coast from Thursday to Saturday. On top of that, we want to avoid pub/areas as we have kids with us.
Besides, which beach is nicer for us to stroll along in the morning and spot dolphins if we are lucky enough?
