It has set the scene for blockbuster movies and world-class surf events, so it’s no surprise Queensland’s most charismatic city has been drawing visitors for more than 50 years. The Gold Coast is a glitzy strip of high-rise hotels and expansive resorts set along more than a dozen golden sand beaches.
There’s something here for everyone, from dedicated surfers to easy-going families and sophisticated foodies. Just 30 minutes from the beach you’ll find a subtropical hinterland dotted with tumbling waterfalls, bushwalking trails and quaint villages.
Plan your perfect next Gold Coast family holiday here.
