Follow Gold Coast 

As a city that boasts 300 days of beautiful sunshine, spend your days enjoying the thrill of a rollercoaster ride and enjoying the tranquillity of lush hinterland rainforests. Take time to wander along beautiful, sun-kissed beaches before enjoying a bite to eat at one of the Gold Coast’s bustling cafes. Ride a wave at renowned surf breaks, or take a short drive from the coastline to visit the world heritage listed Gondwana Rainforests. Discover lookouts and magnificent waterfalls that will take your breath away and enjoy the refreshing vibe in the shade of impressive treetop canopies.

A visit to the Gold Coast can only be complete once you have spent at least a day meeting all your favourite characters and whizzing through the air on rollercoasters at a theme park. For more excitement, join a jet boat ride and race across the Broadwater, or take a happy snap at the top of the SkyPoint climb.

No matter what your holiday style or reason for taking a break, the Gold Coast has an array of eclectic experiences for a trip to remember long after you return home – there is something for everyone.

Stunning natural landscapes are easily found across the coast and in the lush hinterland. From golden sand beaches to world heritage listed Gondwana Rainforests these open vistas and hidden gems are waiting to be explored. Walk a few steps from your hotel lobby to reach the beautiful beaches or jump in the car and enjoy a scenic drive into the hinterland to discover waterfalls and critters of the forest concealed by a richly vibrant landscape.
Wander sunny market stalls to pick up locally made snacks and a coffee, and dine at oceanfront restaurants that will delight the senses with each dish. If an early morning catch has you jumping out of bed at sunrise, then head out to the Fisherman’s Co-Op at Main Beach and be the first to choose your catch of the day, straight off the trawlers from the hands of local fishermen. After tasting your way through regional flavours, quench your thirst at one of the popular craft breweries and distilleries popping up all over the coast.
A holiday to the Gold Coast wouldn’t be complete without a visit to one of Australia’s best theme parks. For rollercoaster thrills and waving hello to all your favourite characters, be sure to book tickets to all the parks. For more exciting activities, the Southport Broadwater offers an array of water sports including jet boat rides, jet skiing, gorgeous flatwater sailing and seasonal whale watching. The heights of the Gold Coast can offer uninterrupted views and a steady stair climb atop the Q1 building is the best place to catch the sun setting at dusk.
There’s an accommodation option for everyone on the Gold Coast! Book into a family-friendly hotel that the kids will remember forever for waterslides and kids’ clubs that will entertain them for hours. For a touch of indulgence, head to a luxe resort or a suave hotel on the beachfront and enjoy stunning ocean and hinterland vistas just beyond the balcony.
