You could make a picnic and catch the water taxi over to Tangalooma and go swimming/snorkeling around the wrecks and lazing in the water.

Southbank beach, New Farm park, Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary.

Picnic at Currumbin Rock Pools.

Explore the waterfalls/rainforest behind Brisbane/Gold Coast.

Visit Oreilly's.

All good ideas. We're having a chilled day but going to the revolving restaurant in Surfers for Twilight Buffet early evening. If anyone has had a bad meal there or bad experience in recent months please don't bother telling me about it, I've already paid

O'Reilly's is a great place to go. Take a picnic Christmas lunch and have a hike through the beautiful rainforest.
