About the Gold Coast

The Gold Coast has come into its own. It’s starting to look, feel and behave like a capital city, yet has kept hold of the beachy aura that’s attracted people for decades. Whether adventure calls your name, or you’re long overdue a restorative getaway, this metropolitan coastal city awaits you.

Experience the unmistakable energy and enviable lifestyle that attracts over 13 million visitors every year, eager to soak up the sun, feel the sand between their toes and take part in the near-limitless range of attractions and experiences.

Within walking distance of the conference venue, you’ll be able to bask in the Gold Coast’s breezy beach culture and meet the friendly lifeguards - maybe even learn to surf, stand-up paddle or watch a stunning sunset.

As a vibrant haven for foodies, you can also sample the culinary temptations at an ever-evolving array of nearby restaurants or see local produce and arts at beachside markets, or shop up a storm at the newly transformed Pacific Fair Shopping Centre - whatever you’re looking for, the Gold Coast offers endless choices to find moments that move you and discoveries that inspire you.
