When was the last time you went to the Gold Coast?

So much more than just theme parks and a glitzy strip, the Goldy is making waves with its micro-breweries, rooftop bars and blossoming dining scene. From the iconic beaches and beloved surf breaks, past the luxury high-rises and up to the tranquil hinterland, this region is ideal for those looking for a healthy dose of nature with a few glamorous extras.

And with 300 days of sun every year, it's always the perfect time to escape to this golden city with our first ever International flight to the Gold Coast from New Zealand. 

Come and Play at Australia's Favourite Playground 🌊 From serene swimming beaches and lush landscapes of the hinterland to a thriving café and dining culture, and rich offering of arts, culture, accommodation, and experiences, the Gold Coast welcomes you to experience it all.
