Gold Coast Highlights
The Gold Coast's bright neon lights bring the glitz and glam of Miami and Las Vegas to Australia. This heady mix of high-rise apartment blocks, airport-sized shopping malls and million-dollar theme parks is one of the most popular holiday destinations in the country, with more than two million visitors soaking up the Queensland sun here every year.
Sand, surf and nightlife sure have their appeal, but there's more to the Gold Coast than the beach. Beyond the high-rises the Gold Coast Hinterland is a densely forested region home to two of Queensland's best national parks: Lamington and Springbrook. It's true there's plenty to discover on this golden coast.
