The Gold Coast is one of Australia's leading holiday playgrounds. With 70 kilometres of sun-drenched beaches, World Heritage Listed rainforests, theme parks, shopping and nightlife, it's the Coast with the Most.

Head to a surf school, catch a major surf lifesaving carnival or build a sandcastle at the many beaches running along the Gold Coast. Some of the more popular beaches are Surfers Paradise, Broadbeach, Burleigh Heads, Currumbin and Coolangatta. It's a major family destination with protected waterways and rock pools for safe swimming, white sandy beaches for long walks and a huge choice of attractions.

You can even enjoy an island adventure. South Stradbroke Island is within easy reach of the northern Gold Coast. With nine times more waterways and canals than Venice - be prepared to enjoy some on-water fun with sunset cruises, sailing, jetski rides or fishing.

A wealth of Gold Coast visitor information is available on the popular goldcoastaustralia.com web site.
