Face it, we all love a secret little mates break and to be honest we can’t think of a better place to chill out with your friends than on the Southern Gold Coast.

This place is the ultimate getaway and there are endless options to choose from when it comes to things to do.

So we have narrowed the list down for you to make it a little easier.

Mantra Twin Towns is literally the ideal place to stay if you’d like to be close to all of the main attractions in Coolangatta and the Tweed Coast.


You can chill out all day at Rainbow Bay, dine at a big variety of restaurants or enjoy a walk along Marine Parade.

There are a lot of room choices on offer that will suit all of you and your mates needs!

Obviously, when you’re with your mates you’re down for a good time right?

Well that brings us to our next suggestion...


With an area of 3000 square metres, the centre features Tenpin bowling lanes, which provide a great atmosphere for holiday parties, corporate events, birthday celebrations and any other occasion. Or if you just want to be a big kid!

If you and your friends are a bit more on the adventurous side you can always checkout Gold Coast Skydive.

Gold Coast Skydive are the only Tandem Skydive operation on the Gold Coast!

They have an excellent safety record, state of the art equipment and a pristine beach-side location.

They offer free transfers every day from anywhere between Surfers Paradise to Coolangatta and to top it all off, they land on the warm sand of beautiful Kirra Beach!

Sounds like a dream.

After a big day you can head on over The Strand at Coolangatta.

Basically this is place that has EVERYTHING (literally Timezone is connected)

It is the heart of beachside dining, shopping and entertainment in a world famous waterfront location on the Southern Gold Coast.

Shopping - it has a mix of fashion, surf wear, supermarkets, gifts and homewares.

The centre is also a one-stop shop for your everyday needs and services.

Dining - The Strand is filled with award-winning restaurants, international cuisine, cool bars and casual eateries… Asian, Mexican, Italian and tapas-style restaurants and of course Gelato Messina and Max Brenner.

You can’t visit the Southern Gold Coast without a walk in Pat Fagan Park.

The park has breathtaking views all the way to Surfers Paradise.

It is a super popular wedding ceremony location, so of course you know it will be perfect for those Insta snaps!

Okay guys, get packing.
