"Gold Coast" Gold Coast by CandS

Gold Coast Travel Guide: 849 reviews and 1,804 photos

I have been to the Gold Coast about ten times now over the last 20 years or so...

I have visited all the usual tourist places like Dream World, Movie World and Sea World...all of them are great!

The Gold Coast is a very busy place...not somewhere to go for a quiet holiday if you want to get away from it all. The beach is gorgeous though!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Great beaches & lots to see & do
  • Cons:Too busy & too many people

    From Kirra to Burleigh is definitely the nicest part of the Gold Coast. Ripped a fin out of my board at Burleigh many years ago, but still like it.Good wave! Took the girls to W.B yeah it's o.k.!

    Beautiful intro photo, and I love the pictures of the Rainbow Lorrikets! The amusement parks remind me a bit of Orlando.
