Visit Australia's Gold Coast
You can tell from the name alone that Australia’s Gold Coast is a special place to visit. And there's far more to this region - aka Australia's Favourite Playground - than the skyscraping suburb of Surfers Paradise, which is where most people's Gold Coast experiences begin and end.
Attractions in the wider region include a range of adventure and extreme activities, seemingly endless white sand beaches, lush rainforests, and some of the best places to party in the whole country. Travel to the Gold Coast and you might never want to leave.
Below you can find more information on the Southern Gold Coast, the Hinterland, rainforests and, of course, Surfers Paradise.
Southern Gold Coast
A dreamy alternative to the frenetic energy of Surfers Paradise, the Southern Gold Coast is blissfully uncrowded, yet sports some of the country's best beaches and scenery. It's a perfect place to stop for a while and unwind.
While most visitors focus on the golden sands of the seaside, inland the Gold Coast becomes green, with undulating landscapes of forests, rivers and lakes, creating a perfect environment for exploration and adventure.
Much of the Gold Coast Hinterland is covered with beautiful rainforest scenery, with national parks like Springbrook boasting thousands of acres of lush vegetation, and Tamborine National Park with its mile-long Skywalk through rainforest canopy.
Glittering Surfers Paradise is the main draw for most Gold Coast visitors, with arguably the best nightlife scene in the country, awesome theme parks, and of course miles of sandy beaches and seriously impressive surf.
