The Gold Coast is one of Australia 's most popular holiday destinations, and with a staggering 57 km of coastline and golden beaches, lavish accommodation and a vibrant nightlife, it's no surprise.
Located just south of Brisbane , the Gold Coast accessible for any visitor to the east coast of Australia . There are a wide array of beaches to visit including Mermaid Beach, Palm Beach, Broadbeach and Surfers Paradise, each with something different to offer and each as beautiful as the last.
If you are more of an active traveller, visit Burleigh Heads where you will find beachfront markets and wild life parks to wander through at your leisure.
Surfers Paradise is a central zone for those looking to party non-stop, with beach activities such as snorkelling, jet boating and, of course, surfing. The night life runs throughout the night past the early hours of the morning, offering up dancing, music and a good time for all.
Southport is host to Seaworld, a magnificent marine theme park with luxury accommodation on its doorstep. See dolphins, killer whales and seals perform; watch exceptional water ski performances; or simply enjoy a ride on the monorail or in a helicopter.

Peppers BroadbeachThey say that this hotel is 5-star, but I beg to differ. It's more like a 6-star! Move over Burj-al-Arab, Peppers Broadbeach may just be about to take your crown! Being new, everything is pristine, but the thing that bowled me over was the view - an absolute stunning vista of the Gold Coast and in particular, Broad Beach . In summary, great service, total quality and fantastic style have all combined in one place.
