Gold Coast Information
Stretching from Beenleigh and South Stradbroke Island to Cabarita Beach in New South Wales, and west to Kooralbyn Valley and Rathdowney, the Gold Coast is essentially a string of intimate towns and villages linked by modern highways, the mountains and the sea. Its popularity has created a destination rich in facilities, services and warm hospitality.
A sweeping 70-kilometre coastline offers a stretch of patrolled beaches that are among the best in the world. The beachfront esplanades of vibrant centres like Surfers Paradise, Broadbeach, Burleigh Heads, Palm Beach and Coolangatta invite you to sit back, relax and soak up the fun and holiday atmosphere.
Australia’s theme park capital, the Gold Coast offers all the thrills and spills you can pack into a day. a week or a lifetime. The stalwarts are well known – Sea World, Warner Bros, Movie World, Dreamworld – and each year theme parks add new dimensions to their entertainment line-up.
Follow the roads inland and a magical world unfolds: a world of tropical rainforests, mountain villages and other hidden treasures that are all part of the Gold Coast Hinterland – the green behind the gold. Much of the hinterland is national park, allowing visitors to experience the beauty of the area first-hand on one of the many walking tracks. The tracks vary in difficulty and length – some are only one kilometer, perfect for families with younger children experiencing the wonder of the rainforest for the fist time.
