Gold Coast Library

Why not spend a rainy day in the quiet of a library. You are only able to borrow books if you ask us prior to write you a letter saying you are staying in the area, but you are free to read to your hearts content in the library. They have a computer area just for the kids and a number of sitting/reading areas.

• The Pines Elanora, KP McGrath Drive


DVD Library

There are a number of DVD libraries/kiosks in our local area. There is one outside the IGA in Tugun, one also outside the Tugun Fruit Market, but to check all locations you can visit Hoyts Kiosk.


Tenpin Bowling

There are a number of bowling alleys on the Gold Coast. Our favourite one to go to is AMF Robina at Robina Town Centre.



This is an indoor maze of multi-sensual experiences. Some scary, some fun, some overwhelming weird. While it’s not on the Southern end of the Gold Coast, it’s a good rainy day activity. Prices are online and tickets are cheaper if bought online.
