A dream luxury day on the Gold Coast
2 min read
The Gold Coast is the playground of Queensland. With so many exciting adventures and lavish experiences available, we thought we’d round up some of the best.
We start the day with a hot air balloon ride to take in a spectacular Gold Coast sunrise and the jaw dropping views of the Gold Coast hinterland. When you’ve eventually scraped your jaw off the bottom of the hot air balloon basket, it’s time for a champagne breakfast at O’Reillys Canungra Valley Vineyard to debrief and enjoy a delicious array of freshly cooked pastries, bacon and eggs, cereals and fresh fruit.
After the exhausting experience of the morning, it’s best that we head to the Spa Q at the QT Gold Coast hotel for some relaxation. The Pure Gold package is what’s needed – a warm oil massage, concept facial, lash tint and a manicure & pedicure will have us looking and feeling our best for the rest of our big day of luxury pampering.
We’re positively famished by this point, so now it’s time to head to Seaduction Restaurant & Bar to experience their amazing degustation menu. Delicious items such as zucchini flowers filled with Witches goats’ cheese, roasted baby beetroots, beetroot gel and soubise, beetroot and sugar cured ocean trout, local sand crab rillettes, lotus crisps, yuzu pearls and lime emulsion and Butter poached lobster tail, crushed pea tortellini, carrot puree and almond butter and are just some of the items from the highly acclaimed menu. Wine pairings will of course be offered with each dish!
After you’ve digested your divine degustation delicacies, a heart pumping, adrenaline filled supercar experience – that’s right, it’s time to get behind the wheel of a Ferrari and a Lamborghini and drive some of the world’s fastest and most exotic cars. A guided tour of the Gold Coast will have onlookers drooling as you cruise past in style.
It’s getting into the afternoon now – you’ve had a pretty spectacular day by now. So let’s keep the ball rolling. We’re heading to one of the most luxurious spots in the whole of Australia – The Palazzo Versace. Afternoon cocktails in The Palazzo Versace’s famous Water Salon will help you unwind after the adrenaline filled supercar experience.
Private cabanas next to the stunning pool offer an intimate setting to unwind, sip your favourite cocktails and take in the opulence surrounding you.
We might as well stay here for dinner, as the Palazzo Versace boasts the most fashionable restaurant around the world awarded by Harper’s Bazaar Magazine – Vanitas Restaurant. You’re set for an incredible gastronomic experience, perfect wine pairings and lavish surrounds.
If you’re still awake after a day of pure luxury, why not hit the Seventy7 Café & Bar for a nightcap. Located on level 77 of the Q1 hotel, you’ll be greeted with magnificent 360-degree views.
What a day! When you’re finally finished living the life of Riley, you can retire in your magnificent canal-front home in Biggera Waters and reflect on a perfect day.
All this could become reality if you’re the lucky winner of Mater Prize Home lottery No. 265 in Biggera Waters. Support patient care and research with your lottery ticket purchase and be in the draw for your chance to win this luxurious lifestyle.
