Mention the Gold Coast and various images come to mind… stunning beaches, a surfing paradise, exciting theme parks, sun-kissed locals, sophisticated style, the list goes on. It’s a place where you can let loose and feel free, all with a smile on your lips and the sun on your cheeks! With its signature 52 kilometres of golden surfing beaches, world class accommodation, award-winning dining, amazing shopping and thrilling attractions, the Gold Coast has something for everyone.
Beaches | Rainforests | Theme Parks
The Gold Coast’s star attraction is its beaches, including the world-renowned stretch of sand at Surfers Paradise.
Beyond the beaches, discover laid-back neighbourhoods, a booming culinary scene and the Gold Coast’s famous theme parks. And don’t miss a trip into the subtropical hinterland for rainforest walks and waterfalls.
Once the little brother to big sister Surfers Paradise, Broadbeach or “Broadie” to locals, is all grown up. We could start in the surf, with its beautiful beaches, framed by lazy parks home to weekend markets and weekday yoga classes. Or wander down the Broadbeach Mall, peppered with roving street artists and framed by alfresco dining whose tentacles seem to keep spreading in all directions.
Yes, you’ve now met one of the Gold Coast’s dining divas, with everything from gourmet delis, to bistros and brasseries. There’s five-star feasts to be had along here too, and seemingly a new restaurant or bar every time you blink.
If you do want some razzle dazzle, head across the Gold Coast Highway to The Star Gold Coast (formerly known as Jupiters Gold Coast), with its 24-hour casino, bars, lounges, restaurants and shows galore. Let’s not forget Broadbeach’s other icon – Pacific Fair – one of Australia’s largest retail shopping centres with more than 300 stores, cinemas, and dining.
