GOLD COAST

The Gold Coast is a coastal city in the southeast corner of the state of Queensland in Australia. It has long been a high-profile tourist destination for Australians and overseas travelers, with Surfers Paradise being the hub of tourist activity. The Gold Coast, that visitors are more familiar with, stretches along the coastal suburbs from Paradise Point to Tweed Heads (about 35km).

Promoted as "the green behind the gold", the Gold Coast Hinterland refers to the mountainous area between the Gold Coast and the Scenic Rim region. It is home to national parks, mountain resorts, waterfalls, reservoirs, scenic drives and lookouts, wineries, rock formations. The area is mostly covered in sub-tropical rainforest, but sections have been cleared for dairy farm land and wineries. The Hinterland is best seen by car or on a bus tour as the roads wind through the mountains with various lookout points along the way and towering trees lining the roads - it is truly a beautiful drive.

The Gold Coast region is big on theme parks which include Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, Sea World, Warner Bros Movie World, Dreamworld, WhiteWater World, Australian Outback Spectacular, Wet 'n' Wild and Tropical Fruit World.

Cavill Mall and surrounds have some cheap souvenir and t-shirt shops. There are dozens of stores around Surfers Paradise catering exclusively for the tourist market and Australian opals, sheepskins, wool products, and aboriginal "artifacts". Surfers Paradise has several shopping centres including the Centro Shopping Plaza (with Woolworths supermarket and numerous souvenir shops) and the Chevron Renaissance (with Coles Supermarkets and fashion shops).
