The Gold Coast is one of Australia’s most popular and beautiful places to live, with a population of 500,000 and a one hour’s drive to Brisbane.
Known for its beautiful beaches, rainforests, thriving night life and world-class theme parks the Gold Coast is often talked about as an ideal place to live.
The weather is mild all year round and has a humid sub-tropical climate. Due to the humidity the city can experience heavy thunderstorms and summer rain for weeks at a time and is more prone to natural disasters such as floods and cyclone’s than other areas.
However the warm summers and very mild winters are what draws many people to call the Gold Coast home.
Some of the famous attractions include Surfers Paradise, the Tambourine Mountains and the many theme parks such as Movie World, Sea World, Dreamworld, White Water World and Wet ‘n’ Wild.
For nature lovers you will find an abundance of native wild life, in parks such as the Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary.
