Gold Coast Beaches Australia

The Gold Coast is renowned for cheap souvenir and t-shirt shops ; plastic koalas are one of the most popular items. There are dozens of stores catering exclusively for the Japanese tourist market and Australian opals, sheepskins, wool products, and aboriginal “artefacts” are popular, although often overpriced. There’s one important thing to remember – the Gold Coast is a long, slender city. So just about everything runs north and south. The Gold Coast is situated in the southeast corner of Queensland, to the south of Brisbane, the state capital. Gold Coast City is renowned for its sunny subtropical climate, popular surfing beaches, expansive waterway and canal systems, a skyline dominated by high-rise apartment buildings, active nightlife and wide variety of tourist attractions.

The Radisson Resort Gold Coast can cater meetings, conferences and corporate functions for small groups of 10 or large groups of 350. With our flexible Gold Coast hotel meeting space, cocktail style events may be arranged for up to 900 guests. We host successful events in renovated conference facilities at the Courtyard Surfers Paradise Resort, with professional event planners managing the details.

Located in the northeast Australian state of Queensland, just 50 miles south of Brisbane, the Gold Coast offers a relaxed, outdoor-focused lifestyle with all the conveniences of urban living. One can choose to while away an afternoon being pampered at one of Australia’s top spas, or hiking in the Hinterland; wandering through world-class shops, or bungee-jumping out of a helicopter over the Pacific Ocean. Gold Coast Australia is home to so many different events, you can plan your holiday around one. Or just see what’s on when you get here. The Gold Coast also boasts the greatest concentration of duty free stores in Australia, more than 500 restaurants offering every kind of international cuisine, and accommodation to suit every budget. It is justifiably regarded as the theme park capital of Australia.

The Gold Coast is one of Australia ‘s leading holiday playgrounds – and for lots of great reasons. With 42 km of sun-drenched beaches, World Heritage Listed rainforests, brilliant theme parks, shopping, nightlife and spas, it packs in more holiday attractions than you can imagine. As weird (or as simple!) as it may seem, behind this site are real people, based in Australia, with a passion and enthusiasm for travel, to help you with all your needs. Lamington National Park is Australia’s largest reserve of subtropical rainforest and offers nearly 160km of walking tracks.
