With today’s technological advancements, reaching any place is almost never impossible. Fast trains are always on operation everywhere to bring you to your desired destination; there’s an airplane if you want to go to even the farthest continent from where you are; and even the Moon was already reached a long time ago all because of science and technology.

With bright minds making everything possible for us, there are two destinations that up to now, no one has ever made portal to: the future and the past. Perhaps that how powerful Father Time is. Nevertheless, it’s a dream for most that can never happen.

For the future, the only thing we can do to get a glimpse of it is to consult a soothsayer and ask what the future holds. Good thing for the past though, because heaps of historical artifacts and whatnots have been everywhere to try to at least help us feel how it was like in the past.

If you’re into getting vicarious experiences from old stuff, then you’ll most certainly love to visit the Broadbeach Mall off Gold Coast’s Broadbeach for an experience of riding the 120-year-old carousel located right inside this modern establishment.

Being more than a century old, this kiddie ride called the Charity Carousel is rich in history especially to those adults who were once kids and loved riding this piece of history. Come to where it is located and observe the parents or guardians bringing the kids to this attraction, and wonder who amongst them used to enjoy it when they were younger.

For only $2 per ride, you can experience this historical carousel yourself. And since restorations have already been done by the Gold Coast City Council and it is operated by the Southport Rotary Club from 2009 onwards, one day, you may also bring your kids for them to try it, too, and have the same experience that you will have.

The Charity Carousel is open from Mondays through Thursdays 9am to 4pm, Fridays through Saturdays 9am to 9pm, and Sundays 9am to 4pm.
