The Gold Coast is a resort city stretching along the coast of Queensland's Pacific coast between Brisbane and New South Wales. It has long been a popular tourist destination for Australians and international visitors alike, with long stretches of beautiful beaches and an exciting nightlife. Much of this nightlife centres around Surfers Paradise which, in addition to beautiful beaches and fantastic waves, has lots of bars, clubs and late night shopping. The city is also famous for its theme parks, with everything from the Australian Outback Spectacular to Warner's Movie World to choose from. The Celebrate Gold Coast event, in September, gives you the chance to experience everything that makes the city special and when you need a break you can always venture into the Hinterland and visit three national parks. Get your tickets now for a total Aussie holiday experience.
There is no doubt that the Gold Coast is most famous for its breathtaking coastline. While it is indeed truly memorable, stretching for almost 30 miles along the coast, there is so much more to do in the city than just surf and soak up the sun.
Let's start with those beaches. Almost all are well protected by lifeguards and have clear areas for swimming (inside the flags) and surfing (outside the flags). Popular beaches include the famous Surfers Paradise, Broadbeach, Burleigh and Kirra. Just walking along the seafront is a truly memorable experience.
