Built for pleasure and committed to the sun and surf, the Gold Coast might just be Australia’s most famous holiday destination. When viewed from afar, the coast’s skyline seems almost make-believe. There’s a 52 kilometer stretch of pristine sands, breathtaking sunsets, pleasant water temperatures, 300 sunny days a year, and a vibrant culture to be found in the Gold Coast. You’ll find unique, charming neighborhoods, flourishing culinary scenes, and laidback local ora all around town. Be sure to visit the lush, subtropical forest of the hinterland while you’re there.
