Family Beach

While most tourist spots and development are around Surfers Paradise and Broadbeach, the southern suburbs have maintained their local, natural, laid-back feel. Stay at Kirra Surf, just minutes from the Gold Coast Airport, for a relaxed family holiday in style!

The holiday accommodation is just steps from Kirra Beach's beautiful white sands and includes one, two, and three-bedroom apartments and extra spacious and comfortable penthouses and sub penthouses. All rooms are bright, modern, and self-contained, with full kitchens, air conditioning, free WiFi, private balconies, and stunning ocean and hinterland views.

With an onsite gym, inviting outdoor infinity-edge pool, sauna, barbecue facilities, and alfresco dining area, you'll have no trouble making the most of your downtime at our Gold Coast beachfront accommodation.

Kirra Surf Apartments puts all of the best sights and experiences in the area at your fingertips. Here is a list of some of the best things to see and do in Kirra Beach during the school holidays.

Learn to surf

Kirra is the most well-known surfing location on the Gold Coast! Take home more than just memories; take home a new skill. Walkin' on Water and Currumbin Alley Surf School are two surf schools worth checking out.

Walkin On Water Surf School uses the beautiful beaches of Greenmount and Coolangatta for all levels of surf lessons. They teach group and private surfing lessons to people of all ages and abilities, having taught children as young as four and adults as old as eighty.

In addition to their comprehensive lesson plans, all of their Surf Instructors are professional and fully qualified. They are friendly and make sure students have fun learning. To ensure a safe environment, all of the Surf Instructors have a variety of lifesaving/lifeguard and first aid qualifications. 

Currumbin Alley Surf School is another excellent option. Since 1993, this has been the Original Surf School at Currumbin Alley. Surfing lessons on the Gold Coast are available for people of all ages, sizes, and skill levels. They can provide individualised instruction and feedback.

Have a BBQ at the stunning Kirra Hill Lookout

Kirra Hill, one of the most scenic spots on the Gold Coast from which to enjoy a barbecue or picnic, provides an excellent overview of the lovely beach and headland surrounds that make this a popular beach spot for locals. Kirra Hill has spectacular views and is one of the best places on the Gold Coast to watch the sunrise and sunset.

Visit Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary

Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary and the nearby David Fleay Wildlife Park provide opportunities to get up close and personal with some of Australia's most amazing animals.

Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary has been protecting native wildlife and preserving indigenous culture for over 70 years. This regional treasure has also educated and entertained families and tourists through incredible experiences such as the Twilight Tour, Grazy Arvo With Koalas, TreeTop Challenge, Wildlife Hospital Tour and more.

David Fleay's is a small wildlife park in the heart of Burleigh Heads that features Queensland's natural habitats, from rainforest to bushland, as well as some of the State's unique and threatened species. Fleay's Wildlife Park is the only place visitors can see the shy bridled nail tail wallaby, thought to be extinct for over 30 years!

Go whale watching

Kirra Surf Apartments is a 7-minute drive from the Ivory Marina, where the Coolangatta Whale Watch vessel departs. You'll enjoy an entire 3-hour cruise aboard their spacious 60-foot well-maintained whale-watching boat, which has plenty of all-around seating and an expert and informed commentary from their onboard marine biologist.

Enjoy a family bike ride from Kirra to Duranbah Beach

A beautiful 2km bike ride along the coast from Kirra to Duranbah Beach is ideal for both kids and adults. Are you ready to have some fun? Rent a bike for the whole family. Several bikes are suitable for children and adults, including stand-up e-bikes, e-bikes, mountain bikes, and more.

Go Fishing

Holidays are all about unwinding, and fishing is a great way to keep busy while relaxing. The Southern Gold Coast is a prime location for it. Try Tugun or Bilinga beaches for beach fishing, and cast a line in Currumbin Creek or the Estuary.

Check out The Coolangatta Beachfront Markets

Don't miss the opportunity to visit the original and best Gold Coast markets running for over 30 years. Spend the weekend shopping at the Beachfront Art and Craft Markets. Every 2nd and 4th Sunday of the month, over 150 stalls showcase the best and most unique Australian-made products, fresh produce, yummy food, and live entertainment.
