About the Gold Coast

With a cavalcade of beautiful beaches, a famous nightlife, numerous theme parks and other attractions, winding waterways, and some great greenery all wrapped up in a package that includes famously good weather, it’s not hard to see why the Gold Coast ranks highly on most people’s Aussie travel lists. Considering it’s not a capital city – in truth, it’s more of a “strip” that features various suburbs spread out alongside roughly 70km of pristine beaches – it can be quite surprising to first-timers that the Gold Coast boasts one of the widest ranges of things to do of any region in Australia for visitors both local and international. With a reputation for adventure and nightlife, the Gold Coast is also one of the country’s most family-oriented destinations, presenting a bevy of attractions for kids as well.

While the first images often conjured up when one pictures the Gold Coast might be the glitz and glamour of the beach strip at Surfers Paradise, there’s far more to the region than that; head inland, for example, and you’ll come across one of the most impressive stretches of Hinterland all within a relatively short drive of one of the most glamorous cities in Australia.

Featuring an idyllic balance of weather and climate, things to do for young and old, and nature versus man-made offerings, and you’ve got one of the best all-round travel destinations in Australia that’s all capped off by some of the country’s most beautiful beaches. Find out more about the Gold Coast by reading our most popular Gold Coast travel articles below.
