The Gold Coast

Discover our Hidden Gem: Holidaying on the Southern Gold Coast

Let’s set the record straight from the get-go – the “Gold Coast” and the “Southern Gold Coast” may share the same breathtaking coastline, but they offer entirely different places and experiences. While most people tend to lump them together, those in the know understand that the Southern Gold Coast boasts its own unique charm that sets it apart from its bustling northern counterpart.

So, what’s the real difference?

The Gold Coast – with its towering high-rise apartment buildings (the tallest in Australia – the Q1 and many more), the glittering allure of Surfers Paradise, Caville Ave and its party scene.  It is the home of thrilling theme parks, The Gold Coast 600, traffic lights, shopping centers, and a go-go-go atmosphere that caters to the adrenaline-seeking masses.

But venture a little further south, and you’ll find a whole new world waiting for you…

The Southern Gold Coast – Here, the pace of life slows down.  Picture yourself waking up to catch the first rays of sunrise on your balcony while seasoned surfers hit the waves, think laid back beach vibes, cute beach houses and low rise accommodation, quaint cafe’s and coffee spots.  Soaking up nature at Burleigh heads hill, or going for a dip in the icy cold waters of Currumbin Rockpools.  Catching up on reading that book you bought 6 months ago, salty hair and sandy toes welcome, surf club dinners overlooking the beach and ice-cream stops on the way home.

The Southern Gold Coast offers the perfect backdrop for a tranquil and rejuvenating getaway.

So, if you’re yearning for a true-blue beach holiday experience, where serenity meets the surf, the Southern Gold Coast is your answer.

Once you’ve experienced the magic of this laid-back paradise, you’ll never look back. The Southern Gold Coast will captivate your heart.
