Gold Coast is a city in the southeast corner of Queensland, Australia. It is the second most populous city in the state and the sixth most populous city in the country. Gold Coast City is renowned for its sunny subtropical climate, popular surfing beaches, expansive waterway and canal systems, a skyline dominated by high-rise hotel and apartment buildings, a vibrant nightlife and wide variety of tourist attractions for the gay and lesbian traveler.

Gold Coast has literally hundreds of accommodation options for the gay and lesbian traveler. These range from gay friendly backpacker hostels to gay friendly three, four and five star luxury resorts, hotels villas and self-contained apartments with stunning skyline, beach, ocean and hinterland views. Gold Coast is all about extravagance. It has the world’s only Versace hotel, Palazzo Versace, and the romance of a rainforest retreat.

Gold Coast’s wining and dining is truly exceptional. The Food and Wine Trail encompasses award-winning wineries, breweries and food-based attractions within an easy morning drive, or for the true gay and lesbian gourmet, an all day drive. Seafood is world-class. Whether you buy the catch of the day from the local fish market or catch your own out on a deep sea fishing charter, you can enjoy spanish mackeral, wahoo, black marlin and mahi mahi as well as snapper, whiting, trevally, bream, pearl perch and greenback tailor. The Queensland mud crabs are a true delicacy. Food based festivals span the year with opera in the wineries, Christmas in July and ethnic feasts celebrating the city’s multicultural base.

When it comes to sports and leisure activities, Gold Coast is hard to beat. With 35 miles (57 km) of coastline and some of the most popular surf in Australia, Gold Coast is a surfer’s paradise. Beaches also line the Gold Coast's 560 miles (860km) of navigable tidal waterways. For racing enthusiasts, the Gold Coast Indy 300 is a car-racing event held annually, in October. The course winds through the streets of Surfers Paradise and Main Beach. During the Indy 300, many other events take place such as the Indy Undie Ball and the Miss Indy Competition. In June, Coolangatta hosts the Wintersun Festival, a two-week 1950s and 1960s nostalgia festival with free entertainment and attractions, including hot rods, restored cars and revival bands playing music of the era. Each July, more than 16,000 people congregate on the Gold Coast to participate in the Gold Coast Marathon.

The Gold Coast Arts Centre located in Evandale, is a fine arts gallery featuring local and international artwork from painting to sculpture and new media. In addition, there is a theatre for live productions including musicals as well as two arts cinemas showing foreign and independent films from Australia and abroad.

Gold Coast hinterland is the green behind the gold. Located just an hour’s drive west of Surfers Paradise, Gold Coast's Hinterland mountains include world heritage listed national parks where gay and lesbian travelers can enjoy stunning panoramas, local restaurants, shopping, bush walking, bird watching and swim in natural rock pools.

Gay and lesbian travelers visiting Gold Coast can embrace a truly outdoor, sporty lifestyle.
