Southern Gold Coast
From the Southern Gold Coast, you can look back towards the Surfers Paradise skyline in the distance and the entire coastline and really feel you’ve slowed down.
The surf here is spectacular, particularly off the northern corner of Coolangatta Beach, the headland around Greenmount, Snapper Rocks into the southern corner of Rainbow Bay and of course, the world-class surf break of Duranbah.
The southern suburbs of Palm Beach, Currumbin and Kirra exude old-school beachside charm where you can still find a milkshake in a tin cup. It combines this with world-class oceanfront hotels, restaurants and clubs plus an array of retro festivals.
Gold Coast Hinterland
Escape to the natural wonders of the Gold Coast Hinterland and experience a sojourn to energise the body, mind and soul. Meander along quiet country roads on the way to more than 100,000 hectares of National Parks and reserves.
Ignite your inner adventurer’s spirit with miles of enchanting bushwalks through the rainforest, visiting waterfalls, canyons and valleys along the way.
