Accommodation To Suit Everyone

With a worldwide reputation for its diversity and relaxed and friendly atmosphere, the Gold Coast has a wide range of accommodation options available during the Games.

Hotels and motels are a convenient choice, while apartment accommodation caters for those who may want to prepare their own meals.

Happy campers will find a variety of tourist parks with great tent and caravan sites, along with cabins and cottages for the ‘Glampers’.

Holiday houses, bed and breakfasts, houseboats, resorts and hostels are also possible options, while Homestay offers international visitors a true ‘Aussie’ home-style experience with Australian families.


Spectators are encouraged to tailor their accommodation to suit their Games itinerary. Spectators planning to attend the Beach Volleyball at Coolangatta and enjoy some of the arts and culture programs are urged to look at accommodation options at the Southern end of the Gold Coast.

For those planning to attend the Gymnastics at Coomera and Track Cycling in Brisbane, consider accommodation options in the Gold Coast hinterland, northern Gold Coast or even Brisbane.

The beauty of South East Queensland is there in an abundance of fantastic places to stay, see and experience all within an 80km radius of the heart of the city - including the Gold Coast hinterland, Brisbane and Northern NSW.

Event cities Townsville and Cairns also offer unique accommodation options that cater to all tastes and budgets.
