New Zealand is one of my favourite countries. For any adventure seeking and nature lovers, a trip to New Zealand will satisfy your soul. You could road trip New Zealand in a camper van, hit up Queenstown for some skiing or bungee jumping, head to Milford Sounds for some hiking or hit up one of the cities: Christchurch, Wellington or Auckland for some wining and dining.
I visited the Northern Island of New Zealand and spent 10 days road tripping the countryside in a Jucy Van, I loved every minute of it.
And the best part about New Zealand is the fact that you can fly there for as little as $200 from the Gold Coast, direct.
How do a few days of City life sound to you? Get a photo with Marina Bay Sans, Explore Gardens by the Bay, shop till you drop and dine in one of Singapore world-class restaurants.
For just $174 to fly to Singapore, you could justify that for an extra-long weekend.
Another destination that you could visit on a long weekend from the Gold Coast is Malaysia, with flights starting from $203. Great shopping, delicious food, and amazing (and cheap) hotels with views of the famous Petronas Towers. If this sounds like your kind of holiday, what are you waiting for?
What comes to mind when you hear the phrase ‘tropical dreams’? For me, it’s the Maldives. And can you believe that you can fly to the Maldives for as little as $214? This sure shocked me. If you’ve been craving Island life, the Maldives are calling your name.
Keep in mind when booking flights to the Maldives that you will be flying into Male, the main island. To get out to the smaller islands, you will need to book another flight, and this will cost you extra.

Tropical paradise, island hopping, waterfalls, rainforest, wildlife, temples and culture, yep Thailand certainly has something for everyone. And you can fly to Bangkok from the Gold Coast for just $245. Not to mention that when you get there you can get a delicious Thai mean for as little as $2. Thailand was rated as one the cheapest destination to travel to in my recent article.
Just a 3-hour flight from the Gold Coast and you will be in tropical Fijian paradise, another perfect destination for a relaxing, tropical getaway. Why not surprise your partner and book a long weekend in Fiji, with flights starting from $300.
