I felt very spoilt
I can absolutely recommend Sean and his team - they went the extra mile to ensure my trip to Melbourne was seamless. Huge thanks
Service first rate. I was notified that the direct flight I wanted had been put on so all changed with nothing for me to do and no extra cost. Everything I requested was dealt with efficiently and with the feeling it was no effort - certainly not for me. I have used DialAFlight for years and they have been consistently excellent.
Manny, Eve and Chris were all excellent and organised a fabulous holiday for us. Thank you all!
DialAFlight are my go to company for travel. They are always straightforward to deal with, always very pleasant and helpful and deliver exactly what I want. And my recent travel plans were no exception. When I had a query whilst abroad Jeff provided a fast and helpful response. I'm so happy I always book with DialAFlight.
The trip went well apart from the delays at Manchester due to lack of staff but that’s not your fault
Billy and Orlando were extremly helpful and all was fixed for us
Les is fantastic, as always! Prompt, thorough and lovely too!
Harry was very efficient friendly and helpful with our whole trip
I was very happy with the all round service
DialAFlight as good as ever!
Best service ever!
Allow more time between domestic flights and international flights - some airports are massive
I have always had great service from the team and will always use DialAFlight. I have recommended so many folk and they too have nothing but praise for their service. Nothing is too much trouble for them to make sure your trip or holiday goes smoothly
Always very helpful and excellent service. Everything well organised for my successful trip.
I have always found DialAFlight professional, helpful and patient.
Apart from the onerous journey my flights were excellent - it was only the arrival at Heathrow that marred the experience taking one and a half hours to get through Border Force
Dreamliner not as impressive as it sounds. Also food very poor.
Great service and always on the end of the phone
Brilliant customer service from William as usual - well done.
Calvin is simply the best travel agent I have ever dealt with
Always very efficient - given several flight options and made my selection of flight - all booked very quickly
Excellent support from Helen and her team which was excellent
Great service again, thank you
I have booked holidays with you for a number of years. Every time all arrangements have been perfect.
You sent the wrong email address for Qantas dangerous batteries!
Great experience dealing with Finn and his colleagues again. They make the process easy and I recommend them often!
Super quick and understood what I wanted straight off the bat. Helpful suggestions on where to stay and best seats on flight. Would definitely use again.
Everything fine, just what I asked for.
A very friendly, helpful and efficient service. The hotel you booked for us was excellent. I will certainly ask you to arrange our next trip.
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.
