Planning Your Gold Coast Holiday
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 Southport are the region’s nexus; dozens of high-rises cling to the beachfront, surrounded by an array of high-end restaurants, retail stores and tourist attractions. From Kirra to Burleigh Heads or any of the southern Gold Coasts world-renowned point breaks or the famous beach breaks from Surfers Paradise beach to the Spit. Explore Southport’s Chinatown to the hugely-popular Timezone, to the sun-drenched beaches and Surfers’ booming nightclub scene, there’s something to entertain every traveller at every hour of the day.
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. As you travel up the steep alpine roads, you can watch the temperature drop on your car’s thermometer, and it’s reflected in the Mountain’s unique, Old World culture. A multitude of different European eateries accompany the awe-inspiring views, and you’ll be able to satisfy your shopping urges with a trip down tourist-friendly Gallery Walk.
