    One of the most visited cities in Australia, The Gold Coast is a pristine city perfect for your family’s sunny vacation! There are so many things to do in the tourism capital. Hang lose at Surfers Paradise and enjoy the non-stop sun and waves. Pick up a yacht at Main Beach and kick back with a seafood feast. And you can’t forget a dune riding tour at the stretch of white sand beaches at Stradbroke Island.

    Aside from the amazing destinations, you will also find a lot of kid-friendly restaurants in the Gold Coast. Here are some of the best spots for you and for your kids!

Although the menu is non-traditional to a T, your young ones can appreciate a lot of their healthy takes on classics such as burgers, toasts, and pressed juices.
