Planning your next Gold Coast holiday has never been easier. Stretching from Ormeau to Coolangatta, the Gold Coast is Queensland’s glittering crown – young, vibrant and exciting. Boasting some of the worlds best beaches, idyllic hinterlands and incredible nightlife, it still retains the laid-back, slow-paced attitude that’s so intrinsic to the coastal way of life.
Surfers Paradise and Broadbeach are the region’s nexus; dozens of high-rises cling to the beachfront, surrounded by an array of high-end and family friendly restaurants and eateries, Pacific Fair and Harbour Town shopping centres and tourist attractions such as Sea World are all centrally located.
Famous Surf Breaks at Kirra, Burleigh Heads, The Spit, Currumbin, Snapper Rocks – the list is endless of point and shore breaks from the southern border to northern Queensland for you to surf, swim or walk along and enjoy.
Summer sees beaches packed with swimmers, surfers and stand up paddle boarders. In our ‘winter’ months, where the temperature in and out of the water is the same, whales migrating along the coast can be sighted by boat or indeed the shore on a calm day. With beachfront farmers and local produce markets, visitors can live like a local, purchasing food and snacks to consume and cook with during their holiday.
If you’re looking to escape the summer heat, you can head inland and experience subtropical rainforests like Springbrook National Park, Lamington National Park and Mount Tamborine the heart of the Gold Coast hinterland – under an hours’ drive from the coastline. Tambourine Mountain is home to an idyllic township, with European style buildings, eateries and bed and breakfast accommodations, you can shop in style down the tourist friendly gallery walk.
