Gold Coast, Queensland

Gold Coast, Queensland

The Gold Coast is one of Australia's best-known holiday regions. During the last few decades, a building boom transformed the coast into a kind of tropical Las Vegas with high rises and hotels stretching from Southport, in the north, to Coolangatta, in the south. Packed with attractions and high-rise hotels, Surfers Paradise - 'Surfers' for short - is a tourist magnet legendary for its alliterative assets: sun, surf, and sand.

To the south of Surfers, visitors flock to Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary and Movie World, where old film sets have been recreated by Warner Bros. To the north, in Southport, lies Seaworld. Excellent networks of roads lead to scenic lookouts in the hinterland where many wilderness areas are within easy reach, including popular Lamington National Park. Visitors can fly into the Gold Coast at the Coolangatta airport near the Queensland-New South Wales border.
