Gold Coast Holidays
Just south of Brisbane, the hugely popular Gold Coast provides all the ingredients for a perfect holiday. Whether you spend your days at a theme park, on the golf course, shopping, learning to surf, dining al fresco, discovering the lush hinterland or soaking up the sunshine there's a new experience waiting for you at every turn.
During the last few decades, the coast has transformed into a tropical Las Vegas with high rises and hotels built around superb resorts like iconic Surfers Paradise, Main Beach or Coolangatta.
Energetic Surfers Paradise is the entertainment playground of the Gold Coast with a world-renowned stretch of sands, amazing nightlife venues and electric atmosphere. Walk, run or ride along the beach promenade by day and browse beachfront markets by night; shop and café-hop your way along Cahill Avenue and into the hidden arcades that house quirky coffee shops and award-winning restaurants.
On the northern end of the Gold Coast, Main Beach is the first vantage point to dive into the iconic rolling waves, while at Coolangatta, you'll find a slower pace of life along with world-class oceanfront hotels, restaurants and clubs.
The Gold Coast is Australia's theme park capital with something for everyone, including the assortment of rides, shows and attractions of DreamWorld; Wet 'n' Wild or WhiteWater World for fun-filled waterslides and leisure pools; Warner Bros. Movie World, where your favourite films come to life; and Australia's Sea World with its exciting rides, attractions and shows.
Within half an hour's drive of the coast you'll find yourself in the middle of the enchanting Gold Coast Hinterland, which includes World Heritage Listed Gondwana Rainforest and Tamborine Mountain where you can walk the pristine rainforest tracks or the amazing Skywalk, and at Lamington National Park you can stroll through the rainforest canopy 49 feet above ground at O'Reilly's Rainforest Tree Top Walkway.
