Getting to Your Gold Coast Accommodation

There are many ways to reach the Gold Coast. Located between Queensland and New South Wales, the Gold Coast Airport receives flights from all major Australian cities, as well as some international destinations like New Zealand, Hong Kong, and Tokyo. The flight time from Sydney is about 1 hour 25min, whilst the flight from Melbourne takes about 2 hours.

Food & Drink

Eating out on the Gold Coast

The Gold Coast is located in eastern Australia and is famed for its al fresco approach to life, with high-end restaurants, street side eateries and casual burger joints all embracing dining in the great outdoors. If you are travelling on a budget or just looking to soak up the authentic street food atmosphere then head to the arcades behind Surfers Paradise, which are packed with Asian lunch box restaurants where you can pick up fantastic food for a few dollars.

Tedder Avenue and Broadbeach have the highest concentration of eateries on the Gold Coast with choices to satisfy every taste and budget. Many of the restaurants operate on a bring your own booze basis, with a small corkage fee applied by the venue. If you are seeking something a little cheaper try Oskars, one of the top restaurants in the vicinity, which offers spectacular views of the beaches. It enjoys an equally impressive location with a much more affordable price tag than the nearby Kurrawa Surf Club.

Art & Culture

Getting cultural on the Gold Coast

Despite primarily being known for its beaches and range of outdoor pursuits, the Gold Coast has a surprisingly large community of creatives, artists and musicians. The museum scene is busy and diverse, with a number of smaller specialist museums which focus on local art and local issues.

The Gallery at Hota is one of the city's most prominent museums and exhibits one of the largest collections of Aboriginal work in Australia. Boomerang Art is another highlight and showcases a range of Aboriginal fine art as well as a range of affordable artworks which are available for purchase.

The Gold Coast is also home to the country's only surfing museum, Surf World Gold Coast, which documents the history and technology of this national obsession. The Forest of Memories, situated on top of a hill in Logan Town, is an intriguing attraction which celebrates the lives of influential local figures and heroes.

Gold Coast holiday homes are a natural choice for a family holiday, with excellent weather and plenty of outdoor activities to keep everyone entertained. The abundant beach space and BBQ spots are perfect for keeping children occupied while you enjoy the delightful climate with a cocktail at the beach front bar.

For some natural exploration, Natural Bridge at Springbrook National Park is just the ticket. Kids will be mesmerised by the glow worms you can see in the evening after an adventure through the verdant forests. The Cumbrian Rock Pools are another geological highlight and the perfect place to cool off on a hot day.

If you happened to catch one of the rare rainy afternoons, the Ripley's Believe It or Not Museum and the Odditorium Cinema are excellent family-friendly entertainment choices. For stunning views of the city check out the Skypoint Observation Deck - visitors over twelve years of age are permitted to take part in the thrilling Skypoint Climb.
