Welcome to one of Australia’s most captivating cities. Long known for its breathtaking coastline, the Gold Coast could easily be another beach destination. But scratch beneath the surface and you’ll discover a place of powerful contrasts, the nostalgic and the new, the audacious and the abundant.
Step beyond the stadiums to discover a city by the sea that’s maintained its coastal town soul. Unearth rare finds among the bohemian laneways and coastal emporiums of the south. Foodies rejoice, with beachside fine dining to laid-back rooftop bars and buzzing markets there’s plenty of opportunities to indulge. Meet the locals at a native wildlife sanctuary, or relax into your swing on one of the world’s most picturesque golf courses.
Fancy a change of tempo? Indulge your inner thrill-seeker at a theme park or soak up the lively ambience of the city after dark. Discover boutique vineyards and sample local produce in village cafes or pack your hiking boots and explore over 100,000 hectares of World Heritage listed rainforest.
Be swept up in an energy as constant as the ocean tides. You can see it in the faces of baristas, lifeguards, and surfers paddling out at dawn. Feel it between your toes, taste it in the fresh salty air, glimpse it the vivid city lights.
