City breaks to Gold Coast
The Gold Coast is an area of Queensland coastline along the eastern side of Australia. Soaring towards the sky under the heat of the tropical sun, the high-rise beach resort attracts surfers and backpackers alike for a city break on the waterfront. For water sports fans and pub crawlers the Gold Coast is the perfect destination as the beer flows and the water swells in perfect unison. The sprawling metropolis is easily navigated by local bus or taxi or by bike for those who like cycling in the sun. There are golf courses, restaurants, shopping centres and family theme parks to entertain visitors. A massive bungee ball and various other rides light up the skyline at night and prepare visitors for the mayhem of what lies ahead. Behind the city an expanse of world heritage rainforest makes for a good place to disappear once the partying and adrenalin junkies have lost their edge.
Rent a room fro your city break

There is a wide range of budget hotels and hostels for backpackers and those on a budget but expect drinking games and organised night tours to leave from the reception on most evenings.
