Australia’s Gold Coast is a diverse city, offering action-packed days and fun-filled nights enjoyed by more than 11 million visitors each year. The 57 kilometres of sand and surf, 100,000 hectares of World Heritage-listed rainforest, award winning dining, active pursuits and an ever-evolving events calendar and more than 300 days of sunshine annually confirm the Gold Coast as a year-round destination of choice.
The Gold Coast boasts 42 golden beaches each with their own personality. Each is pristine, perfect in its own way, with a natural energy to revitalise the senses.
Beaches on the Gold Coast provide a very welcoming, village feel. Whether immersed in the action of lively Surfers Paradise, lazy secluded coves in Tallebudgera or at laid-back Burleigh, each beach is pristine, perfect in its own way.
What many people don’t know about the Gold Coast is that it has nine times more waterways than Venice with over 260 kilometres of navigable waterways within the City. The Gold Coast is home to a spectacular network of waterways which are made up of five main rivers, numerous creeks, lakes, canals and the magnificent Broadwater, culminating to create a haven of fun-filled pursuits.
Energise the body, mind and spirit while taking in the natural wonders of the Gold Coast’s World Heritage-listed Springbrook and Lamington National Parks and the Tamborine Mountain township, all just a 40 minute drive from Gold Coast beaches.
The Gold Coast is full of attractions and things to do. As Australia’s premier tourist destination, the city offers a vibrant mix of shopping, accommodation, theme parks, restaurants, entertainment and events, along with an abundance of natural attractions.
The Gold Coast has developed into a diverse, cosmopolitan, forward-thinking city with a future full of promise.
