Message from Tourism Australia
The Gold Coast's star attraction is its beaches, including the world-renowned stretch of sand at Surfers Paradise. Beyond the beaches, discover laid-back neighbourhoods, a booming culinary scene and the Gold Coast's famous theme parks. And don’t miss a trip into the subtropical hinterland for rainforest walks and waterfalls. International flights fly directly into Brisbane Airport from many global hubs. From there it’s a one hour shuttle bus ride to the Gold Coast. If you are travelling to the Gold Coast from within Australia, direct flights arrive at Gold Coast Airport in Coolangatta.
