The Gold Coastgold coast tourist information

From golden beaches to sub-tropical rainforests to glitzy nightlife, the Gold Coast has it all !
Surfers Paradise is a shoppers' haven featuring everything from bikinis to Australian opals.
Finish off with a cocktail in one of the many Oceanside bars or take a dip in the sun drenched beaches of the Pacific Ocean. Just a short drive inland finds you meeting many Australian native birds and animals in places such as Lamington National park.
Several theme parks like Movie World and Sea World make this a great family destination, and it is all a very short drive from Brisbane and airports.
You don't even have to worry about a parking ticket here, the lovely Meter Maids in their bikinis will top up your parking meter for you!

There is so much to do here, from theme parks to whale watching to dolpin feeding to zorbing....
