Australia’s #GoldCoast is in the heart of subtropical Queensland, rife with natural beauty and a human spirit dedicated to vitality, fun, and enjoying life. The skyline of Gold Coast practically dips its toes in the ocean, and much of the area is rich in lush greenery and waterfalls.

The north coast of this city began as a #vacation retreat in the 1850s and maintains its position as the Gold Coast’s heart and soul of entertainment and surfing. The south coast has a slower vibe and is a bit more relaxed.

Remember that Gold Coast also happens to be the theme park capital of Australia, which helps drive Gold Coast tourism and serves as a nice complement to the lazy beach life.

Top off your trip down under with a #visit to Mount Tamborine, a 30-minute drive inland from the coast. On the ridge of a volcano, Mount Tamborine offers a bounty rainforest trails.

For now, we hope you enjoy watching this #travel #guide as much as we enjoyed making it.
