Tony Judge provided an excellent and person centric service and as a result our trip ran like clockwork. He has been attentive and it has been a first class service.
My sister and I felt that we were in good hands. Thank you for making it so easy!
Excellent arrangements as ever. Will be in touch when arranging more flights
Fantastic trip, many thanks Isaac once again for all the bookings and your help.
Perfect. Will not hesitate to book with you again
Paying extra for seats worked well. Thank you for your speedy and effective booking. I always recommend you to friends.
Very helpful - made booking trip to Australia easy.
Someone to talk to at the end of a phone in seconds with no auto answer menu is greatly appreciated and sets the tone for a DialAFlight experience.
Very disappointed with the flight from KL to PERTH. Fell way short of business class standards. The matter was relayed to Malaysian Airlines who were going to investigate these issues, that was a month ago with little response. Many thanks for the way you organised my flights.
Thank you so much for the excellent customer service. Communication was brilliant and nothing was too much trouble. We will definitely use DialAFlight again and will recommend to our friends and family.
Visa instructions for Australia could do with a little more guidance otherwise arrangements for another excellent trip were provided by DialAFlight.
Good to know we had someone available if we needed it but things went so well that we didn’t. Will be back for the next flight!
I always contact them to arrange whatever I need for my holiday. Well done and a huge thank you to Megan who had the patience of a saint when looking for our flights.
It was all fantastic, definitely come to DialAFlight again
Couldn't fault the service, thank you.
Gino was fantastic - our big trip went like clockwork and the whole holiday was stress free. Recommend highly .
Brilliant service - will always use you guys
All flights and hotel/apartment reservations were excellent and we had a super time. It was really useful to have the app itinerary to constantly refer to.
Thank you for organising our flights - brilliant service - thank you very much
My booking with DialAFlight was a seamless experience. My queries regarding my booking were answered by Ray who was very approachable and easy to contact in person. I was initially very nervous about my trip to Australia and Ray helped massively to allay my fears about the booking and the trip in general. All of his advice was accurate and I can not recommend them more highly.
Great trip, Ash, thanks for your help.
I always contact DAF for my trips to Australia or other exotic places and you are always great! Superb deals, great communication by phone, email or app - excellent response time when for example I had about 10 seconds to organise a visa! I have always recommended you and genuinely will be back next year - can I go to Vietnam please?
Amelia is always great to deal with, she is reassuring and super efficient.
Always helpful and available.
Total travel time of 36 hours to Australia far too long. Lufthansa Business Class not as good as Emirates.
Very professional. Excellent job by Robbie Karbhari.
Great service and peace of mind when booking with DialAFlight. We are now looking at our next holiday
Ash dealt with all changes professionally, efficiently and in a friendly manner.
All flights and trips fell into place, thank you.
Next time we do Australia we will choose flights that are on A 380 for both legs. So much better that B777 for business class.
An abundance of activities
There are few other places where you can enjoy such variety in one day and the breathtaking hinterland, boasting several national parks, is fondly known as ‘the green behind the gold’.
There's everything from ancient volcanoes and stunning waterfalls to species of flora and fauna you’ll find nowhere else.
Tamborine Mountain, the world’s third oldest National Park, is bursting with lush forests, winding walking trails and sweeping coastal views – and even art galleries.
Dominating the Gold Coast’s western skyline is Springbrook National Park, famed for waterfalls and tumbling creeks. At Lamington National Park, part of Australia’s World Heritage Area, you can see beautiful and unique Antarctic beech trees, with roots more than 5,000 years old.
Tamborine Mountain’s magical Glow Worm Caves glitter with thousands of bioluminescent insects - also found within the Natural Bridge caves in Springbrook National Park.
For hikers, Tamborine Mountain boasts 12 beautiful walking tracks, while Lamington National Park has nearly 100 miles of trails, including the challenging but rewarding 13-mile Border Track.
The beach suburb of Coolangatta has trails leading up to the exotically-named Point Danger - where you can plant one foot in Queensland and another in New South Wales.
Events and festivals spring up along the Gold Coast. Burleigh Heads, a suburb trimmed with towering fragrant pine trees, hosts the Village Markets on the first and third Sunday of every month and comprises more than 100 boutique stalls, vintage designer stores, live music and street food.
Not far from here is Broadbeach, which in May is home to Australia’s largest non-ticketed music event - the Blues on Broadbeach Music Festival, with international talent across 20 outdoor stages.
Events and festivals
The renowned Swell Sculpture Festival is held in September at Currumbin - a magnificent free outdoor gallery.
For foodies, Broadbeach Mall has an array of gourmet alfresco options, and at the Burleigh foreshore, oceanfront seafood dining is the order of the day.
Tamborine Mountain also has a brewery and Australia’s most-awarded distillery, producing liqueurs, vodkas and schnapps.
You can often spot creatures you’ll see in no other place on earth. South Stradbroke Island, just 200 yards from the mainland, is a 1,800-hectare conservation park that protects a number of native species; kangaroos, echidnas, koalas and bandicoots among them.
From Coolangatta on the southern end, make your way to Rainbow Bay, a great place for whale watching and snorkelling with turtles. Or in Springbrook National Park, you’ll be in the company of more than 100 types of birds, frogs and reptiles.
Lamington National Park is a great spot to discover rare wildlife, as is Tamborine Mountain’s Rainforest Skywalk, from which you can see creatures that occupy the tree-tops.
As well as fabulous surfing, the Gold Coast has lesser-known coves and lagoons.
Springbrook’s Warringa Pool is the best natural swimming hole on the mountain and nearby Twin Falls tumbles down into three levels of rock pools.
For a laid-back seaside experience, Coolangatta has old-school charm. And Main Beach, popular for its elegant bathing pavilion and Southport Surf Club, all part of the glittering experience that is the Gold Coast.
