Things to do in Sanctuary Cove

If you’ve planned a trip to the Gold Coast and staying at the incredible Sanctuary Cove, you might ask yourself, what to do in Sanctuary Cove?

We’ve put together a list of the top 5 things to see and do around Sanctuary Cove.  But first, here is a bit of info on Sanctuary Cove…

Where is Sanctuary Cove

Located on the Gold Coast, 1 hour south from Brisbane Airport or around 45-minutes from the Gold Coast Airport you will find Sanctuary Cove. If you’re looking to head into Surfers Paradise for a look around, it is only a 30-minute drive away.

A bit of history about Sanctuary Cove

Sanctuary Cove was built in 1986 and is known to be the $2 billion sanctuary for the rich and famous! Those who live there choose a certain lifestyle of luxury and relaxation. Sanctuary Cove is complete with two championship golf courses, a marina and plenty of fancy boutiques and restaurants. This is topped off with the 5-star luxury InterContinental Sanctuary Cove Resort.

#1 Theme Parks (Dreamworld, Whitewater World, Wet’n’Wild & Movie World)

The beauty of Sanctuary Cove is that it is a quick 15-minute drive to the major Gold Coast Theme Parks such as Dreamworld, Whitewater World, Wet’n’Wild and Movie World. You can easily spend a day at each so staying so close is a great idea to avoid driving to and from either Brisbane or Surfers Paradise each day!

Why not take a short 10-minute drive to Jabiru Island. There is a lovely short walk and if you have a family you can enjoy time at the park!

We absolutely recommend dining at Fireplace Restaurant.

The service and food were incredible. Be sure to book as the restaurant gets quite busy, especially on a Saturday evening!
