The Gold Coast is where Australia does its finest impression of Miami. Like the Magic City before it, this happening medley of condo blocks and sleek skyscrapers seems to sprout straight out of the ocean. Around them are boulevards speckled with palm trees and purring with open-top cars. Tanned bodies move between the surf shacks and gourmet seafood joints. And then there are the waves: From Kirra to Coolangatta to Surfers Paradise, there's always a swell drenched by sun in this corner of Queensland. Cheap flights to Gold Coast are available from both long-haul and domestic airlines, with the cheapest tickets typically on offer outside of major holidays like Christmas and New Year.
A gold-tinged run of miles of beachfront that's towered over by luxury condos is what awaits at hip and happening Surfers Paradise.
Stunning beaches with reliable waves converge on lookout points and cosy local neighborhoods in Burleigh Heads.
The locals call it Straddie – this gorgeous island of whale pods, coastal hikes, and refined country eateries.
