6 Things to do before you die | Gold Coast, Australia
Updated: Mar 5, 2019
I AM GONNA DIE. That was the first thing that came to mind. DC Rivals HyperCoaster is the tallest, longest and fastest ride in the Southern Hemisphere. A 89 degree drop from the iconic Joker Head will definitely makes your heart skips a bit. At least the it make my heart skip a beat.
Although I ride DC Rival HyperCoaster twice in one day, it just not enough. I wanna do it again and again and again. The best memories of my life are all in my Anniversary trip to Gold Coast. Hence, I present to you the list of things you have to try before you die.
They should be in your bucket list too.
1. Ride on a rollercoaster and other existing ride
Where else in the world can you scream at the top of your lung and throw your arm in the air? If you did that in most other places, people will put you through psychological test. Being the capital of amusement and theme park, there a lot of ride for those who always seek thrill in their life. You can let it all go and scream or shout as loud as you can and no one will get mad.

3. Hold a Koala
I remember when I'm in my old office, suddenly Mr Zack put a Koala souvenir on my table. During my first visit to Melbourne also, my mother called just to remind me to buy Koala souvenir so that she can give it to all of my aunties and cousins. And I guess everyone who has a friends or family visiting Australia will get a Koala as a souvenir from them. I didn't blame them cause koala can only be found in forests of Eastern Australia. In Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, you can cuddle and hold a koala. You can even take picture with them. I'm hoping Anakin didn't get jealous with the Koala. LOL

5. Eat so much fresh seafood
If you're after a fresh seafood, you can't go past Charis Seafood at Labrador, Gold Coast. It is home of the largest supply of fresh seafood on the Gold Coast. We had lunch here around one o'clock and have a lovely moment watching Pelican feeding at 1.30 pm. Pelican feeding is daily at 1.30pm.
Alternatively, if a more relaxed fresh seafood dining experience you're looking for, Peter's Fish Market is the place for you where you can dine alfresco by the water edge, under umbrella in their garden or in front of your apartment TV.
