The Gold Coast is about 1 hours drive south of Brisbane.

It's famed for its long sandy beaches, excellent surfing spots such as Snapper Rocks, Burleigh Heads and Kirra.

There is also an elaborate system of inland canals and waterways.

It’s also home to theme parks such as Dreamworld, Sea World and Wet’n’Wild. 

Inland hiking trails crisscross Lamington National Park’s mountain ridges and valleys, home to rare birds and rainforest.
