The place for new experiences
There’s never been a better time to visit the Gold Coast – Australia’s postcard-perfect coastal playground is in the midst of a 21st-century renaissance! The Gold Coast remains the country’s premier tourist destination (attracting more than 10 million visitors each year), and beneath the surface, the city’s culinary, musical and cultural identity is surging.
A calendar of new art festivals, and on-trend cafes and restaurants along our glorious coastline are all laid out for visitors to experience. All told, the Gold Coast offers more attractions and events than any other destination in the Southern Hemisphere. The GCCEC team could hardly be prouder of our venue; just quietly, we’re every bit as proud of our city.
