Gold Coast

The Gold Coast is a city coming of age. It is a place of opportunity that, over the next decade, will transform into a globally-recognised city while retaining its enviable lifestyle and stunning natural environment.

Strategically located on the edge of the Asia-Pacific rim, with access to two international airports, the Gold Coast is perfectly positioned as a destination for business, investment, study, sport, events, tourism and lifestyle.

The Gold Coast stretches along 57 kilometres of coastline and is home to over half a million people. Beyond the city’s beautiful beaches are vast, sub-tropical rainforests with breathtaking scenery.

Welcoming close to 12 million visitors each year, the Gold Coast is Australia’s premier tourist destination, offering a vibrant mix of shopping, accommodation, theme parks, restaurants, entertainment and an abundance of natural attractions.

As host city for the Commonwealth Games in 2018, the Gold Coast is embracing transformative civic projects like never before, with more than $13.5 billion in major infrastructure projects planned or underway that will change the face of our city in a way that is distinctly our own.
