When we planned our vacation in Surfers Paradise we were looking for some things that we could do or places that we could visit that were different from anything else we had done on other holidays. So when we heard about the Infinity Attraction on the Gold Coast, that is located right in the centre of Surfers, we were quite excited!

We created a special video clip for you, which highlights some of the different worlds that you can experience for yourself inside Infinity. Watch the video and then read below to find out what a fun time Greg and I had at this exciting and unique Gold Coast attraction!

Since we had never been inside the Infinity attraction we had totally open minds as to what we would see when we entered. We were not disappointed!

Infinity is made up of over 20 different worlds. Each world has its own unique special features and aspects, making each part of this journey an experience in itself.

Every one of your senses is stimulated and fully engaged from the moment you step through the entry to the time that you exit. Music, lights, lasers, motion, mirrors and physical textures and shapes are all used in totally awesome ways that fully engage all of your different senses.

Direction of Travel Inside Infinity

It is important to keep in mind that you travel through the worlds inside the Infinity attraction in one direction only. We found that in some of the worlds it was slightly challenging to find the way out of that particular world and into the next.

At one point, Greg even started back tracking, thinking that there was no way to proceed and that we were meant to go back the way we had come.

But as long as you are aware that there is always a way to travel between the various environments then you will be fine and will not make the mistake that we did. So just use a bit of persistence and you will find the way to go to travel onto the next world!

My Favourite Worlds

I totally enjoyed the journey through Infinity, but had a couple of favourite worlds. I loved the “Electron Maze”, which is one of the first environments that you encounter in the maze-like connection of infinite worlds. I found the sounds and the different coloured lights that went on and on infinitely to be stimulating and relaxing at the same time.

One of the things that I appreciated was that each person who goes through the Infinity attraction can take their time as they go. So if there is a particular world that you especially like then there is nothing stopping you from lingering and enjoying it a little longer.

My next favourite was the kaleidoscopes. This world was absolutely amazing! The varied colours and different shapes and patterns went on infinitely in every direction. So if you looked above or below or to the left or right it didn’t matter. The beautiful kaleidoscope patterns kept moving and changing. I spent quite a while just standing and looking all around me, taking it in.

I found this world truly relaxing and soothing.

Greg and I had fun in the world with the strobe lights and large balls. We could only see each other when the strobe came on every few seconds and then the next time the light came on we were each in a different position. It made us laugh out loud as we each moved our arms and heads and then waited to see what the other one had done.

Scary Worlds

I did find a couple of the worlds with less light in them to be slightly scary, but then my kids will tell you that I am a bit of a wimp when it comes to being scared! I walked closely behind Greg in these environments and allowed him to find the way through to the next world.

I know that Infinity has some conditions of entry and recommendations that they give on their website. You can read these below.

Conditions of Entry:

There are a few important points that you need to keep in mind when planning your trip to the Infinity attraction in Surfers Paradise. These points are summarized here:

  • Not recommended for children with an unusual fear of darkness
  • Young children must be able to walk through without assistance
  • Prams and children in backpacks cannot be admitted
  • Children under 8 years must be supervised by an adult
  • High-heeled shoes are NOT permitted

I think visitors need to know their children and decide if they are likely to enjoy travelling through the worlds of wonder or if they are likely to become scared while on the journey. I have a niece who is just turning 4 years old and I know, with her personality, that she would enjoy some sections with all of the pretty lights, but would be scared by the darker worlds where she had to squeeze past objects that she could only feel, but not see.

Some younger children may be best left with a baby sitter so that they are not frightened and the rest of family can come and enjoy all of the exciting and different environments. This way too, the child is free to come when they are a little older so that they will enjoy the full experience more.

Disabled or Special Needs Access

I specifically asked about whether people in wheelchairs or with wheelie walkers are able to come and enjoy this fun attraction, as I have someone in my family who needs a wheely walker to get around. I was pleased to hear that it is possible.

I was told that if you have someone with special needs that you should phone up and make a booking for a specific time for your visit and tell them about the special needs.

A staff member will then accompany the special needs person as they travel through the different worlds of Infinity. Instead of using the stairs at the start and end of the journey a lift is used and hence the wheelchair and its occupant is able to access and enjoy most of what other visitors get to see. There are a couple of environments that wheelchairs cannot get into, but this is limited.

So keep this in mind if you are holidaying and have someone with special needs in your family or group.

As the Infinity motto says, “The Fun Never Ends!

Next time we are going to have some fun playing mini golf at King Tutt’s putt putt. So watch out for the next blog post.

Until then, Remember to Enjoy Life, Smile at a Stranger and Make a Difference in the World!

Yesterday we went up to the SkyPoint Observation Deck at the top of the Q1 building in Surfers Paradise. This gave us a 360-degree birds-eye view of the whole of the Gold Coast and Hinterland.

The next thing that we did was a fun morning cruise on the waterways around Surfers and out onto the Broadwater with Wyndham Cruises.

Wyndham Cruises are very popular amongst Seniors and retirees. Often groups of friends or groups from retirement villages come together and enjoy a relaxing 2-hour canal cruise and delicious morning or afternoon tea.

Seniors especially love their Devonshire tea, so that is an added benefit of this cruise.

Around 10 minutes into the cruise the hot scones are all ready for passengers to enjoy their Devonshire tea for morning or afternoon tea. The scones, jam and fresh whipped cream remain available for much of the cruise.

For the whole duration of the cruise the tea and coffee facilities remain open and travellers are able to help themselves and make their drinks just how they like them.

The cruise begins at the wharf behind the Tiki Village and travels down the waterways in a southerly direction. It goes past homes of the rich and famous that are valued at multiple millions of dollars.

Shortly after the cruise starts the boat turns inland and travels around Chevron Island and then north past Cronin Island along the Nerang River.

Continuing then towards the bridge on the Gold Coast Highway that joins Main Beach with Southport and under this bridge into the Broadwater.

On the Southport side of the bridge is Outback Jacks bar and grill. Greg and I love going to Outback Jacks for their tasty steak meals.

The boat continues travelling north in the Broadwater, past Australia Fair shopping centre, Mariner Mirage, Versace, SeaWorld Theme park, Sea World Resort and right up to the end of the Spit.

At this northern point, near Wave Break Island, the Wyndham cruise boat turns around to return to Surfers. The southern tip of South Stradbroke Island is clearly visible at this time in the cruise.

The cruise boat then goes back south, under the bridge to Southport. It travels past Macintosh Island and Budds Beach then under the bridge joining Chevron Island and Surfers Paradise.

The Wyndham cruise trip lasted the full two hours and was totally enjoyable! We hope to be able to go on the cruise again and to take visitors to the Gold Coast with us to give them a different way to view the coast.


I would rate Wyndham Cruises as 9/10.

  • The cruise itself was educational, fun and relaxing.
  • The staff were happy, helpful and informative.
  • The food and drinks were fresh and delicious.
  • The boat was easy to move around on.
  • Toilets on board.
  • Shop on-board for drinks, snacks and souvenirs.

Continuing with our Surfers Paradise holiday, Greg and I will go to Infinity at the base of the Chevron Renaissance towers and enjoy the worlds of wonder where the fun never ends.

So come back next time to read all about our experience at Infinity Gold Coast.

Until then, Remember to Enjoy Life, Smile at a Stranger and Make a Difference in the World!

We began our holiday in Surfers Paradise on the Gold Coast with a trip to level 77 of the Q1. This is where the SkyPoint Observation Deck is located.

From this high vantage point it is easy to take in the 360-degree view of the surrounding Gold Coast and Hinterland. Due to the high level it is possible to see up to around 60 kilometres in every direction on a clear day! These are amazing views.

After we walked around and enjoyed the gorgeous views, we decided to relax and grab some food at the cafe on the SkyPoint Observation Deck. Mum ordered a bowl of potato and leek soup. She gave me a taste of it and it was so delicious. I definitely will order this on our next visit.

Greg and I shared the high-tea for two. It came on a three-tiered metal stand and included fruit skewers, cakes, yummy sandwiches and, of course, scones, jam and cream! It was very tasty!

Each of us also enjoyed a banana milkshake and mum had a lemon, lime and bitters as well.

Not only do you get to relax and enjoy the delicious food and drinks, but you also can look out and take in the gorgeous views around you!

Shortly after we ate our snack, the sun began to set. It was really a beautiful sight! The orange glow in the sky and ball of sun descending behind the Hinterland, was so lovely.

Check out the video below to see for yourself.

Once the sun set we waited a little and then the lights of Surfers and the surrounding suburbs began to appear. Before long, right around the Q1 were beautiful scenes of night lights as buildings, cars and streets all began to glow.

We were really happy that we had decided to arrive in the afternoon in order to see the views by daylight. Then caught the beautiful sunset and then were able to see the colourful lights of the Gold Coast, so clearly from this great vantage point.

We recommend the SkyPoint Observation Deck at the Q1 as a great first stop on your holiday at the Gold Coast. This was you can gain your bearings and see where the different places are located that you are planning on visiting.

Note: Check for updated pricing and information at the SkyPoint Observation Deck website.

The next thing that we did on our Surfers Paradise holiday was to enjoy a relaxing 2-hour cruise on the waterways around Surfers and the Broadwater on Wyndham Cruises.

So tomorrow we will share with you about this cruise and our delicious Devonshire tea!

Until next time, Remember to Enjoy Life, Smile at a Stranger and Make a Difference in the World!

In a few days from today, Greg and I are going to Surfers Paradise on the Gold Coast for short holiday.

We have not been to Surfers much over the years and so are both really looking forward to doing some exploring and sightseeing during our week visit.

Some of the attractions that we are hoping to enjoy include:

SkyPoint Observation Deck

At the top of the iconic Q1 tower, on levels 77 and 78, is the SkyPoint Observation Deck where locals and tourists alike can come to enjoy the incredible views up and down the coastline, as well as the beautiful hinterland behind the Gold Coast. The owners of the Dreamworld theme park purchased these two upper levels of the Q1 back in December 2009 and now have visitors relaxing and taking in the awesome views all year round.

This is certainly going to be a high point of our time in Surfers. We plan on checking out the SkyPoint Observation Deck at the start of our holiday so that we can gain our bearings, while enjoying a bird’s eye view of this gorgeous part of Australia.

After our visit to the Q1 and the observation deck we will upload our own videos of our experience. Until then, enjoy this video from youtube showing some of the gorgeous views around Surfers and the rest of the Gold Coast.

A 2-hour canal cruise on Wyndham Cruises

We have made a booking for Greg, my mum and I for this coming Sunday morning. Mum and I love Devonshire tea and so are looking forward to this relaxing cruise. The Wyndham cruise will take us along the canals around Surfers Paradise and then under the bridge, on the Gold Coast Highway that joins Surfers and Southport, to view the Southport Broadwater around Sea World theme park. It is going to be fun!


We are really excited about going to Gold Coast Infinity and viewing the different worlds, all created with amazing special effects, sounds, lights, music…

King Tutt’s Putt Putt

It has been years since I have had a game of putt putt. Greg and I will enjoy a game on each of the three different courses at King Tutt’s Putt Putt. Two of the courses are inside, Ancient Egypt and Jurassic, and then a third one outside, Tutt’s Challenge. It is going to heaps of fun, putting that golf ball around these 3 unique courses.


Ripley’s Believe It Or Not! Odditorium

I have always wondered about Ripley’s Believe It Or Not! Odditorium and so am excited to enjoy what they have for visitors to see. Looking at their website there seems to be many different and interesting things to see and take in. Once I visit, I will get back to you with more specific details of what they have on show.

There are many more fun and interesting things to do in and around Surfers Paradise. We are still planning out our week and will share with you all of the great things that we do.

So keep your eyes and ears open so that you won’t miss any of these interesting places that we visit.

Until next time, Remember to Enjoy Life, Smile at a Stranger and Make a Difference in the World!
