ABOUT THE GOLD COAST
The Gold Coast is one of Australia's leading holiday playgrounds and Gold Coast City has been identified as one of the most desirable places in the world to live. With 42km of sun-drenched beaches, World Heritage Listed rainforests, theme parks, shopping and nightlife, it has everything for everyone.
The most popular areas are Surfers Paradise and Broadbeach however the remainder of "the Coast" offers good quality accommodation close to the beaches and transport. All of this means that nothing is too far away from the many attractions of the Gold Coast. Get more information at www.visitgoldcoast.com
SkyPoint located on top of the iconic Q1 Building, one of the world's tallest residential towers takes you to the highest point above the Gold Coast and offers spectacular 360 degree views from the surf to the hinterland and beyond.

Walk amongst ancient Antarctic Beech trees, wonder at spectacular Springbrook waterfalls. View delicate glow worms or see fascinating marsupial pademelons. Places to see on the Gold Coast.
