All About the Gold Coast

Renowned as Australia’s favourite holiday destination, the Gold Coast is the choice of millions of Australian and overseas visitors with its semi-humid subtropical climate offering about 300 days of sunshine every year.

We devote this section to those who do not know the Gold Coast intimately, the ones who could be excused for asking “what’s it all about?” One thing that first-time visitors often don’t realise is that there is no central CBD called “Gold Coast” – this is quite different from every other major city in Australia.

Newcomers to any area have priorities of information needs, often wanting advice to enable them to make the most of their visit. We have assembled information on a variety of topics from several sources, simply choose a topic and see what we have to say. We have put transportation information at the top of the list, because it is the easiest for us to deal with and it interacts on all other topics.
