Great beach, lots of shops and restaurants and nightlife, more geared towards families than travellers.

Just a beautiful stunning city on the beach. If you want that beach feel in a great urban city, this is definitely the place.

I've been to Gold Coast back in 2007 Dec. I felt like I was in Miami south beach, same weather, same atmosphere with lots of high rise modern apartments. The beach was decent.

The Gold Coast is downtown high-rises clashing with an almost endless white sand beach. It's a bit soulless.

Nice Experience. I flew to Gold Coast and stayed 4 days in this area including 1 night in Brisbane. Gold Coast is big but it`s too comercial and in my opinion that`s their weakness, too many tourists. On the other hand there are several beautiful beaches and good structure to receive this people. You can not make your opinion of a country visiting only one city and Gold Coast is a place you must go in Australia.

All the glamorous attractions aside, the reason why Gold Coast is such a great place is because of their beach. The sand is soft and firm, perfect for long walk and run. Weather is pleasant year-round, and water is just gorgeous.

I really enjoyed the beaches here, from the airplane i saw people in the water at 7am in the morning. Weather was amazing and water wasn't too cold.
