    • About Gold Coast

      The Gold Coast is much more than the beach, famed for its ‘glitter strip’ of Surfers Paradise and the vast beaches that make up its coastline, this region has a far more diverse array of things to see and do. 

       Away from the glitz and glamour of the surf strip, the greenery of the lush Hinterland area is an underrated part of the region with amazing cascading waterfalls, glow worm caves, bush walks and much more, with vineyards and villages which populate this verdant landscape. 

       Marine and aquatic activities are aplenty throughout the 57km worth of coastline on the Gold Coast; whether it’s fishing, jet boating, scuba diving, or a cruise on one of its many waterways, water-lovers will be in their element here. The Gold Coast boasts two universities Bond University and Griffith University, where you can select an academic program and campus setting to suit your needs.
