The Gold Coast, the sixth largest city in Australia is a modern city of glittering high-rise buildings, built around stretches of golden beaches, including the world renowned ‘Surfers Paradise’. Here you'll find Australia's premier holiday destination with perfect weather throughout the year and something for everyone. International theme parks, designer boutiques, luxurious spa retreats, world-class golf courses, award-winning restaurants, upmarket bars and cafes and lively nightclubs area all within easy reach.
With the Gold Coast being the gateway to some of Queensland’s best natural attractions ensure that you find time to island-hop and discover the area’s Aboriginal culture. Travel west and there's the lush rainforest-cloaked hinterland with the World Heritage-listed national parks of Lamington, Border Ranges, Main Range and Nightcap. Head south and you'll find Coolangatta and Tweed Heads and the picturesque beauty of the Mt Warning National Park. Take the Great Sunshine Way to Brisbane, Fraser Island and Bundaberg; or the Pacific Coast Touring Route from Brisbane to Cairns.
Have the best time at the Gold Coast theme parks of Dream World, Warner Bros. Movie World, Wet ‘n’ Wild Water World and Sea World. Enjoy a dazzling night out at Jupiters Hotel & Casino or, if you prefer to be daring, climb to the top of the tallest residential building in the world with the Q1 Skypoint Climb.
Take guided tours to the spectacular Gold Coast Hinterland and enjoy the sights, artisan shops and wineries. Between the months of June and November, go whale watching. And there's great shopping at Elkhorn Avenue, Surfers Paradise and Marina Mirage.
