Inspired travel with our expertise
A truly fun Aussie destination
The Gold Coast is the epitome of the Australian cliché – perfect weather, sandy beaches and friendly faces – but it’s so much more than that. It’s a true playground of casinos, theme parks and natural attractions, a few of which might surprise you.
Surfers Paradise, the glamorous beach area of the Gold Coast, has high rise buildings, a thriving nightlife and a seemingly endless procession of shopping centres and markets. It’s an Australian tourist Mecca and the beach gets packed quickly. Fortunately, you only need to travel a little way to find quiet stretches of perfect sand.
Gold Coast can provide for nature lovers too. It’s close to the area known as Hinterland. This verdant pasture contains three national parks and is covered in tropical rainforest and mountains.
