Gold Coast

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 kilometres 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.

The region has capitalised on its attractive environment, climate and lifestyle and has a highly specialised economy that is dominated by the tourism industry.

Gold Coast Tourism is the official regional tourism organisation (RTO) responsible for the marketing of the destination.
