The Gold Coast is one of Australia’s premier holiday destinations. It is famous for its beaches, surf, theme parks, shopping, nightlife and hinterland and has been attracting Australian families for many decades.
Located in southeast Queensland, just one hour south of Brisbane, the Gold Coast stretches from Cabarita Beach in New South Wales, west to Beaudesert, north to Beenleigh and east to South Stradbroke Island.
The region features 70 kilometers of uninterrupted coastline and is fringed by rainforest hinterland, including World Heritage-listed National Parks. The Gold Coast has a strong linear city base that reveals a close alignment with the coastline, Pacific Highway and the mountain ranges that all run parallel to the coast.
