Stretching along the southeast Queensland coast, from Coolangatta to Southport, the Gold Coast is one of Australia's most famous holiday destinations. The tourist hub of this glamorous coastal strip, aptly named Surfers Paradise, is like an Aussie version of Las Vegas. A forest of skyscrapers bristles along the beach, entertainment venues flaunt flashy neon signs, and designer boutiques beckon from beachside malls. In the surrounding area, a clutch of theme parks adds to all the excitement. But the Gold Coast also boasts a bevvy of natural assets: beautiful blond beaches, an emerald hinterland, and a mild subtropical climate with more than 300 days of sunshine a year.
Not far from the hubbub of this tourist hotspot, sightseers can find plenty of peaceful escapes. Golden beaches stretch for miles south to Coolangatta with a perfect patch of sand for everyone, and wildlife attractions abound. And in the hinterland, nature lovers can relax amid rolling green valleys, lushly cloaked peaks, and World Heritage-listed rainforests.
