Links Hope Island Golf Course

Eighteen-hole championship course designed in the traditional "links" style by British Open champion Peter Thomson. Links is located just 45 minutes from Brisbane and 20 minutes from Surfers Paradise. Facilities include a state of the art Aquatic Driving Range, fully stocked Golf Shop, Restaurant and Bar, refreshment cart and banquet rooms. Visitors are welcome.

A really nice experience from arrival at the Pro Shop. Classy clubhouse and friendly members. The course was in good condition and quite forgiving of "normal" off line shots - not so much with bigger errors (the first has water down the left waiting for the big hook). The greens are generally raised and I found myself using a putter from well off the green on many holes. Recommended.

Illusions Magic Show

Witness some of the world's most impressive Las Vegas style grand Illusions LIVE on the Gold Coast with 5 time champion of magic and Australian Entertainer of the Year, Master Illusionist Matt Hollywood. He'll shock, stun and amaze you with an action packed evening of mind blowing entertainment.

Reviewed By ijballo - Gold Coast, Australia

From the outset I must say that Matt Hollywood presents as a personable, quite cabable illusionist albeit that most of his performance was limited to card tricks and mind Reading. The remainder of the production/ organisation is rank amateaur.
We were advised to arrive by 6.20pm for a 7.00pm show but waited in line until admitted at 6.50pm where we were seated in the theatre foyer. Matt did not appear until 7.15....the show was over and wrapped an hour later at 8.15 with none of the promised grand illusions advertised....no escapes, cutting assistant in two etc. A disappointing evening and never again....at $99 a head this is a con in my view.

The Palms Golf Course

Reviewed By SHoweBathUK - Bath UK

This was one of three courses we played on Hope Island. The Palms was a good test of your ability with plenty of par 3's over water hazards. The course is not too long and was quite easy relative to the other two we played (The Pines (its sister course) and Links Hope Island). The fairways were quite open/had adjoining ones to accept a wayward drive. Would definitely play this one again.

Gold Coast BBQ Boat Hire operates from Hope Harbour Marina and gives you access to a huge area of waterways from Wave Break island in the south to Tiplers Passage in the North. Eric the owner of GCBBQBH is a lovely bloke and after the Skipper's and passengers briefing he can help you plan you journey if necessary.
We motored past the palatial homes of Sovereign Island and headed south. Being a stunning Sunday the waterway was busy with craft al all types and sizes. Our skipper picked a calm and wind free inlet on the western side of South Stradbroke Island and we anchored up.
Sometimes arranging an outing for 10 adults can be an organisational challenge, coordinating that many people to be at one place at a scheduled time is hard. But when what's on offer is a relaxing day on the water and wonderful scenery, what a BARGAIN!! As it turned out, a party of 10 became a party of 7 and the price per head rose to just over $55, still great value. Seven passengers seemed a better fit for the ten passenger boat but it's licensed for 10 if you need.
If you intend to use the on board BBQ My advice would be to keep the menu simple as the BBQ is small. We cooked onions and sausages and kept everyone happy with snags on bread dressed up with grated cheese and the cooked onion, delicious.
All our crew had a great day and gave it a Big thumbs up Will be back.

David, was a true professional and as soon as my wife and I were on board, you feel the stress of life relax. Went for a sail around the Gold coast Broadwater departing from Sanctuary Cove. The day was a perfect sunny day with light winds and the highlight was seeing a group of dolphins jumping out of the water. Getting a photo of them was hard..:-)
A relaxing and enjoyable experience.

Reviewed By Fritha R - Brisbane, Queensland, Australia

On a rainy day we thoroughly enjoyed cruising down the river in the old school bus boat while being serenaded by Neil. Lots of great info about sanctuary cove. And a great way to see the offensively ostentatious houses that line the waterways. Excellent value for an hour.
