Gold Coast Accommodation

Home to over 70 km of coastline, it’s no surprise how Gold Coast got its name. It is however, a lot more than just the ultimate surfer’s paradise. Gold Coast is littered with internationally known theme parks, like Movie World, Sea World and Dreamworld, each with their unique set of rides and activities. Of course, where there are theme parks and golden beaches, there will be accommodation.

Gold Coast accommodation choices include holiday apartments, tourist parks, spacious resorts and well-equipped apartments that provide unobstructed views of the sparkling Pacific Ocean, nearby hinterland mountain ranges and the Gold Coast skyline.

Things to see in Gold Coast

The Great Barrier Reef is a natural wonder that every visitor should view at least once. A formation so vast, the Great Barrier Reef can be seen from outer space. One way to explore it is by island hopping and indulging in the respective activities, like kicking back and enjoying the white sand on Whitehaven Beach or do water sports on Hamilton.

Another natural attraction would be the Tamborine Rainforest Skywalk, where with an elevated walkway, you get to explore the luscious middle and upper rainforest canopies. The walkway eventually descends to other points of interests like rock pools and a butterfly lookout spot, ideal for the photography enthusiasts.

The apartments in this part of Gold Coast feature spacious interiors, well furnished with huge bedrooms, lounging areas, balconies, floor-to-ceiling windows and accessible swimming pools for your morning exercise.

Another location worth staying in is the world-famous Surfers Paradise Beach, where pristine beaches are readily available. Surfers Paradise services 41% of all Gold Coast accommodation, which means you won’t have to worry about finding comfortable places to stay. One of the many attractions is SkyPoint Observation Deck, where visitors enjoy a 360 degree view of Gold Coast, 270 meters above the ground.
