Enjoying an ideal year-round climate and an amazing variety of natural landscapes, including 70 kilometres of famous beaches and 100,000 hectares of world heritage-listed rainforest, the region has been attracting visitors since first settlement. Today, natural wonders are complemented by the largest selection of family theme parks, golfing greens, shopping centres and restaurants.
Family favourites such as Dreamworld, Sea World, Wet 'n' Wild and WhiteWater World are sure to please. Warner Bros. Movie World and the Australian Outback Spectacular provide their own unique feel, while Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary creates a never-ending interactive experience with nature's many creatures.
Jam-packed with adrenaline rides, jet boating on the broadwater, whale watching and themed attractions, including Dracula's Haunted House and Infinity's multidimensional maze located in the city centre, this city is brimming with opportunities to create some exciting holiday memories. Internationally regarded golfing experiences are also in easy reach of the weekend hacker or the serious swinger with more than 40 championship and resort golf courses located throughout the region.
It is easy to see why a Gold Coast holiday is the popular choice, especially from up on high at the Q1 observation deck.
