    Going for the Gold (Coast) in Queensland

    Less than an hour's drive from Brisbane, Queensland's capital city, the Gold Coast is a bustling metropolitan region that's known for its scenic beaches, epic surfing, and a bounty of preserved wilderness, as well as modern waterfront resorts and several amusement parks. Set amid an intricate system of waterways and canals, the city's a serious summer vacation destination and a major hub for Australia's entertainment industry. You can find a number of centrally located Gold Coast vacation rentals, offering easy access to major sights like Lamington National Park, Sea World Gold Coast and the Dreamworld amusement park.

    The Gold Coast – a treasure trove of sandy shoreline

    First up: lather on the suntan lotion and hit the beach. The Gold Coast's home to more than 40 km of sandy beachfront along the Coral Sea, and you won't have any trouble finding the perfect spot for swimming, snorkelling, boating or whatever else your heart desires. If you're looking to make a more intense kind of splash, you can join the surfers hanging 10 at Duranbah Beach, a major international surfing destination just a short drive away. There are a number of national parks nearby, and outdoorsy types can find plenty of hiking, camping and mountain biking in the area.

    Sweet ride(s) – amusement parks and more on the Gold Coast

    Looking to make a splash in the Gold Coast? Then look no further than Sea World Gold Coast. Here, visitors of all ages can find marine life exhibits, live animal shows and roller coasters in a sprawling, waterfront space. For even more thrills, head to the nearby Dreamworld amusement park, where you can take your pick from over 40 different rides in a number of themed environments. For a more naturalistic experience, pull on your hiking boots and head to Lamington National Park, more than 20,000 hectares of scenic wilderness in the McPherson mountain range.

    Sun by the tonne in the subtropical Gold Coast

    Like most of the region, the Gold Coast has a humid subtropical climate, with hot, humid summers and warm, pleasant winters. Summer highs peak in the high 20s between December and February, and seasonal storms are common. Temperatures during the drier, cooler winter months range from 3 to 21 between June and August. With its pleasant climate and wealth of activities, the Gold Coast is a happening region all year round, but you'll generally have better luck snagging less costly Gold Coast vacation rentals during the quieter winter months.

    Water, water everywhere – Gold Coast geography

    Along the Coral Sea in southeastern Queensland, the Gold Coast is densely urban, with high-rise buildings and modern skyscrapers dotting the skyline, interspersed amid an expansive system of waterways. You can find more than 40 km of beachfront in the area, as well as waterfront bluffs and more mountainous terrain further inland. The region is home to some seriously diverse ecosystems, and the nearby Lamington National Park boasts everything from rainforests and waterfalls to wooded mountainsides and steep, rocky peaks. You'll find a number of Gold Coast vacation rentals that put the area's natural bounty right outside your door.
