Accommodation in Gold Coast

Get ready for a golden getaway in southeastern Queensland, Australia. The Gold Coast, on Australia’s east coast—not to be confused with its namesake in West Africa—is a hot spot for those looking for a little adventure. The city serves up 57 km of coastline with beaches that are known for their swells. Find some of the world’s longest waves at Superbank, or surf the big ones at Burleigh Heads. If surfing’s not your forte, dig your toes into the sand at Broadbeach, or go snorkelling around the nearby Cook Island Marine Reserve. During your holiday, venture into the Gold Coast hinterland, where you can tramp through the Gondwanan rainforest. Discover the Tweed Volcano and keep an eye out for the various waterfalls along the trails. Meanwhile, if retail therapy is more up your alley, head to the Harbour Town Outlet Shopping Centre or Pacific Fair Shopping Centre. Prefer to browse individual vendors? Don’t miss the Surfers Paradise beachfront markets, or the art and craft bazaars at Burleigh, Broadbeach, and Coolangatta Beach. However, do realize that the many of these markets are only open certain days each month. From outdoor excursions to shopping spots, there’s something for everyone in this coastal town.
