The Gold Coast is a bustling city full of glittering high-rises built around stunning beaches, including the superb Surfers Paradise. Here, you’ll find designer boutiques, international theme parks, and lively nightlife. You can watch the Coolangatta Ocean Swim or see the coastline from a Spitfire plane; have a swim on the beach or relax with a rainforest walk or spa retreat. Regardless of how you choose to spend your time while you’re in town, you’ll be talking about your trip to the Gold Coast for years to come. With 300 days of sunshine each year, there’s plenty of time to indulge in the area’s many attractions.

Go Surfing

The Gold Coast is the perfect place to learn to surf or find the best breaks. Take advantage of our four epic break points and 70 kilometres of sun-soaked beaches – you’ll quickly see how Surfers Paradise earned its name. This international destination boasts some of the best waves in Australia and is also home to numerous international surfing competitions. Lifeguards are on duty year-round, and there is surf to suit individuals of all experience levels. If you’re a beginner, sign up for lessons and learn from accredited teachers; you’ll be catching your first wave in no time.

Hinterland Great Walk

Take part in this spectacular series of walks and you’ll see the lush Gondwanan rainforest up close. See crystal-clear, powerful waterfalls and streams that continually erode the Tweed volcano, which erupted about 25 million years ago. The trail leads through a landscape as old as dinosaurs with sights you won’t see anywhere else. Learn the ancestral legends of how the valleys and rivers formed and camp in the rainforest or a private camping area at Binna Burra.

Take a Day Trip to Brisbane

While you’re here, be sure to visit Brisbane, Queensland’s sunny, sophisticated capital. Brisbane is the perfect place to combine outdoor adventure with arts and culture. You’ll find hip restaurants, live music, and plenty of creative spaces all around. Take a walk around the city and soak up the thriving arts scene, or have an adventure, like climbing (and repelling down) Story Bridge. Drink and dine in one of the many restaurants and cafes that emphasise local produce, and shop markets and boutiques.
