Are you itching to burst the Trans-Tasman bubble? When travel restrictions ease between Australia and New Zealand, Aussies on the Gold Coast could be the first to welcome our Kiwi cousins with a bright and sunny Kia Ora.

The Gold Coast is a well-loved destination for New Zealanders who have had a unique love affair for a long time. If you are keen to start making your travel plans to visit Queensland’s sunny Gold Coast but need some extra motivation, here’s a refresher on some of the top reasons to visit. If you are a tattoo lover, you can also capture your holiday memories and finish 2020 on the right note! Come and watch our artists in action at our state of the art studios with locations at Surfers Paradise, Coomera and Southport.

From the land of the long white cloud to the bluest of blue sunny skies and pristine beaches which go on forever, there’s plenty of experiences to be had with stories you will want to remember forever. Here’s some reasons why you should mark Surfers Paradise as your next travel destination.

Beach vibes, hanging with the locals and urban sophistication

One of the best places to dip your toe in and whet your appetite at the same time is at one of the many Surf Life Saving Clubs. All situated on prime beachfront land and offering you the chance to hang like a local, here’s where you can take in a live band and satisfy your cravings for calamari and chips or a burger. The beachfront boulevard at Surfers Paradise features world-class cafés, restaurants and retail outlets but also manages to offer the old-school charm of a beachside town. It’s a shopping mecca offering some serious designer labels for all budgets with discount shopping available at Harbour Town to the full priced labels at Pacific Fair, but it’s the local designers, artisans and craft makers who can truly offer a unique travel memento at one of the many boutique shops.

Wild about the Goldie

We’re just crazy for our wildlife on the Gold Coast. The crew at Celebrity InkTM have tattooed many a cuddly koala in our studios for both locals and tourists. First, you can see them up close at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, then capture them for a holiday memory to last a lifetime from one of our tattoo artists at Celebrity Ink™.
There’s some attractions of a different kind at the many Gold Coast theme parks that you won’t want to miss either. Dreamworld has one of the only interactive tiger exhibits in the world. You can book an incredible experience with one of the rarest creatures on the plant and help to save them at the same time via Dreamworld’s Wildlife Foundation and then mark the occasion with a Realism tattoo.

Walk Ins are welcome

There are so many reasons to make Surfers Paradise your next holiday destination, and for some great ideas on marking your travel obsession through tattoos you can read the following blog.

Our artists can help you with a flash tattoo if you just want to walk in off the beach or create an original tattoo if you’d like to include this on your travel itinerary.
