The Queensland region of Gold Coast has been a popular holiday destination since the late 1800s and has been described as a “Surfer’s Paradise” since the 1920s. It’s long, golden beaches boast amongst the most popular surf breaks in Australia and the world.
The home of world-famous stretches of sandy perfection, Gold Coast beaches include Surfers Paradise, Mermaid Beach, and Burleigh Heads, along with plenty of others. You will never lack for a place to lay your towel and catch some of Australia’s notoriously beautiful weather.
The city is also broken up by an 860km network of waterways, which have several excellent inland beaches. At places like Southport, Jacobs well and Evendale Lake, you can relax away from the surfing crowd, who stick to the wild waters along the Pacific Ocean shore.
Gold Coast also boasts a uniquely Australian solution to the problem of traffic and parking regulations. Dressed in golden bikinis, the “meter maids” were introduced in 1965 and are known for topping up meters and leaving their calling card.
The Miami-esque coastline and waterways are dotted with skyscrapers and attractions, including several wildlife parks and centres. Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, Australian Outback Spectacular and Paradise Country and Sea World are all worth a visit, as are Dreamworld, Warner Bros. Movie World and WhiteWater World.
The city also boasts what was once the world’s tallest residential building – the Q1 building. At 322.5m tall, it has now been relegated to the fifth tallest.
All of these sights and more can be explored using Gold Coast’s excellent public transport network, which includes community bike hire, ferry services, buses and trains. However, to really enjoy the beautiful Queensland weather and a thousand miles of clear blue sky, rolling through the city on a Harley Davidson is unbeatable. This kind of unique experience is available with Wildfire Tours.
Book now for the trip a lifetime in a destination synonymous with good times, great weather and the best memories.
