    The attractions of the Gold Coast bring smiles to people of all ages and stages. With exhilarating rides, exotic animals and endless waterslides to help you cool off on hot summer days, your Gold Coast holiday offers a full spectrum of interactive entertainment – from dazzling big budget Gold Coast theme parks to small, hilariously kitsch museums.

    Amusements and Theme Parks

    The Coast’s kid cred is already world-renowned – theme parks rise from the sand and sea. Jump into cute, cuddly and roaring wildlife encounters; worlds built entirely for those that bounce; and ice-creameries serving up sugar highs from just about every corner.

    Enjoy some fabulous food

    The Coast is a place where night bites, hatted restaurants, street-eats and breweries are all served with a side of alfresco. A place where five-star feasting means dusting the sand from your feet; where surfers swap their boards for a latte at sun-up and little ones break from beachside frolics to feast on epic spreads of fish and chips.

    Happy attendees

    Thank you for 3 days that held my interest throughout. That is a hard thing to achieve in any conference because there is usually something that you find boring but these 3 days held my attention throughout. I was dreading Arrhythmias and ECG understanding but now I’m armed and wanting to find out more.


    Key Aspects of Nursing Practice

    Having 6 overall sessions with such varied content was great and can honestly say all of the information is seen on my ward and so valuable to have some extra knowledge and understanding in these areas. Hard to even name which was of greater value as all of it was. Also, the timeframes and breaks were well done. Each overall 3-hour session went very fast thanks to the presenters and the content. Venue: convenient, excellent food, reasonable price, great location.


    Key Aspects of Nursing Practice

    Anne took what can be scary and complex and gave us tools to save our patients. Her immense knowledge allows her to come at concepts from different angles until we understand. I look forward to attending more workshops run by Anne.
