Images of glittering beaches and hair-raising roller coasters quickly spring to mind when thinking of the Gold Coast, but the region delivers a staggering variety of attractions and experiences.
Its reputation as the Theme Park Capital of Australia should not go unmentioned, though. Dreamworld, Movie World, and Sea World – as well as Wet’n’Wild – are all serial crowd pullers. Each has an assortment of attractions and experiences that will easily swamp an entire day.
And that coastline deserves the constant attention it receives. Stretching almost 60km, it includes iconic Surfers Paradise, which bustles night and day thanks to its fantastic beach, restaurants and cafés, shopping, and nightlife. Broadbeach and Main Beach are other key areas.
Shopping opportunities are plentiful on the Gold Coast. Gigantic shopping centres abound, such as Pacific Fair and the Paradise Centre, and there are bargains aplenty at the many regular markets.
Cultural and family-friendly attractions are everywhere. Gold Coast City Gallery, the Gold Coast Wax Museum, and Ripley's Believe It or Not! are leading choices.
Unrivalled views of these magnificent surrounds are offered at the SkyPoint Observation Deck, located within the 322.5m-tall Q1Building.
More majestic vistas abound throughout the Gold Coast hinterland. This beautiful area features World Heritage-listed rainforests and sublime national parks – enjoy it all on a breathtaking walk and soak up the charm of mountain villages.
Keep those eyes in good shape: whale-watching opportunities are extensive on the Gold Coast from June to November. Also immense is the range of golf courses: dozens of top-class layouts are scattered throughout the Gold Coast.
