The Gold Coast epitomises Australian beach culture. From its early beginnings as a sandy backwater, with hardly a building to be seen, these days the Gold Coast is Australia’s premier holiday destination. Centred around the booming sprawl of Surfers Paradise and Broadbeach, the Gold Coast offers holiday action for every budget. With its iconic amusement parks such as Dreamworld, Sea World and Movieworld, and massive shopping complexes such as Pacific Fair, you can combine the lifestyle of a 5-star hotel guest with an epic holiday adventure.
Although the tower blocks along the seafront house some of Australia’s best luxury hotels and boutique apartments, that’s only the beginning of the story. Hidden away among the myriad inland waterways of the Gold Coast are all manner of spas, retreats, and villas-for-rent. The nightlife of Surfers Paradise is a whirlwind of colour, noise, music, and food. You can fritter your fortune, or win someone else’s, and ascend to the heights of the Q1 Tower to watch the sunset over a cocktail. Away from the beach, the inland hills present endless opportunities for exploration such as the weekly Eumundi Market, and the rainforests of Lamington National Park.
