Gold Coast

Area

Mention the Gold Coast region and various images come to mind… stunning beaches, exciting theme parks, sun-kissed locals, sophisticated style, the list goes on. The Gold Coast truly offers something for everyone.

It’s a holiday destination of wonderful contrasts. From the sophistication of Main Beach, the glamour of Surfers Paradise, to the quiet beachside towns and World Heritage listed rainforests of the hinterland… the Gold Coast is teeming with holiday options. Add this to the non-stop energy of the theme parks and a 70 km coastline with more than 40 patrolled beaches, and you’ve got an idyllic holiday destination.

The beachfront esplanades of Surfers Paradise, Burleigh Heads and Coolangatta invite you to sit back, relax and soak up the holiday atmosphere. While on the Gold Coast hinterland, you’ll feel as though you’re miles away from everything. Explore quaint mountain villages and natural escapes in the World Heritage listed Central Eastern Rainforest Reserves.

So come experience the contagious excitement, glorious weather and natural beauty of the Gold Coast. You’ll want to come back again and again.
