About Gold Coast Gondolas

Escape the daily grind with your partner or friends as you glide smoothly through a kaleidoscope of scenic beauty and shimmering lights.

Our gondola's have been specifically designed and built for Australian conditions while providing customers with total privacy and the ultimate in comfort and luxury.

Unlike the Venetian gondolas, our gondolas are constructed of fibreglass with a fixed weatherproof cabin and a rigid soundproof fibreglass panel separating the Gondolier from yourselves, thus affording you absolute privacy.

The elegant and distinctive cabin interiors surround you in comfort and luxury as you sink into plush sheepskin covered seats. 

Gold Coast Gondolas has been providing customers with the ultimate private luxury cruise and dining experience since early April 2000. Since then we have built up an outstanding reputation and have been providing customers, young and old, with an experience that they all call "amazing".   

Gondola Cruise Options

A wide range of cruise options are available - see PRICES. We also offer a range of specially developed ROMANTIC PACKAGES for special occasions.

  • Departure times - our cruises operate on an exclusive private charter basis therefore departure times can be flexible depending on prior bookings.

The Gondolas incorporate a fixed weatherproof cabin with adjustable canvas curtains and clear drop-down panels which can be open or closed to suit weather conditions. The cabin is totally waterproof so in the event of rain you will stay dry, cozy and warm inside your private cacoon-like cabin. Read the below comments  that some of our happy customers have written regarding rain during their cruise:

  • We just want to say thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our engagement on your gondola the most special moment of our lives. The rain was falling all around us, the music, the food & champagne made it more perfect than we could have ever imagined."  Josh & Katrina 

Customers are often concerned about the possibility of rain during their cruise. However, after taking a gondola cruise during the rain they are always amazed at how much it enhances the ambience, with them cozy and warm inside their private weatherproof cabin and the rain coming down all around them.


Due to the fact that all our cruises operate on an exclusive charter basis, cruise departure times can be flexible depending on prior bookings.  It is therefore advisable to book early in order to secure your preferred date and departure time.
