Things to do around the Gold Coast

As the theme park capital of Australia, the Gold Coast is fun with a capital F. It has the rollercoasters and the beaches, it has the nature and the nightlife, it has the tours and the tourist attractions. Visitors travel from across Australia and the world to take in the sights, the sounds and the excitement of this vibrant section of Queensland coastline.

The Gold Coast has five main theme parks, including two water parks, two amusement parks and Sea World. But it’s not all slides and thrill rides – the Gold Coast also offers visitors the opportunity to get closer to Australia’s amazing flora and fauna. Wildlife sanctuaries, rainforest treetop walks and the stunning Tamborine Mountain all offer a different take on the Gold Coast.

While many visitors think of the Gold Coast as a leisure destination, the region also has plenty to offer business travellers. Accor has a number of outstanding conference venues on the Gold Coast, each combining an excellent range of accommodation, leisure and conference facilities.
