What Is Gold Coast, Australia Known For?
Gold Coast is known for its cosmopolitan party-at-the-beach, surfing lifestyle, with high-rise buildings that line the beach, theme parks galore, and all manner of recreation including nightclubs, surfing, and mountain hikes. The year-round pleasant weather, canals that wind through the city, and clusters of students on holiday has drawn well-founded comparisons to Miami Beach. Ironically, there is a neighborhood called Miami in Gold Coast. The beach stretches nearly 20 unbroken miles from Main Beach to Coolangatta. Popular surfing beaches include South Stradbroke Island, Burleigh Heads, and Coolangatta. The region is one of the top vacation destinations in Australia and one of the top surfing destinations in the world. Gold Coast is a long stretch of coastline with several distinct suburbs that make up the Gold Coast metro region.
