Located on the Gold Coast, stretching for 35 km along the Queensland Coast, Gold Coast is a bright and inviting beach city, famed for its golden beaches, exciting nightlife and nearby tropical rainforests and waterfalls. Often mistaken for being a “tourist trap”, Gold Coast offers much in terms of its innate natural beauty and pure, no-holds-barred entertainment.
Home to several theme parks, such as Dream World and Sea World, Gold Coast is a proudly family-friendly holiday destination, offering exciting activities for the whole family. The little ones will also love the local animal sanctuary, where they can get up close to some of Australia’s most famous furry friends like koala bears and kangaroos.
Hikers and nature devotees must not miss the opportunity to explore Gold Coast’s surrounding rainforests and national parks. Springbrook National Park has a host of hiking and walking trails that will lead you to amazing views and scenery. Local waterfall hikes are also a definite must.
