With sunny skies and white sands stretching across 57 kilometres of coastline, Gold Coast is Australia’s ultimate beach holiday address. Head to the cool surf breaks at Main Beach and Burleigh Heads, or indulge in the food scene at Mermaid and Palm Beach. The hip Surfers Paradise, with its clubs and pubs, beachfront markets and lively arts and culture events, will draw you in too. But, there’s more to this Queensland city than sun and sand. National parks, mountain villages and subtropical rainforests from Gold Coast’s hinterlands, with Lamington National Park a stunning highlight. Theme parks are another star attraction, offering some truly unique experiences. At Dreamworld, enjoy a sheep shearing show and feed the crocs, before heading over to Sea World to meet some playful polar bears and to visit Ray Reef.
