Australia's Gold Coast

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.


International Airport Access: Delegates can fly directly into the Gold Coast (20 minutes by car to Broadbeach) or into Brisbane (one hour by car), and coach transfers can be arranged from both airports if necessary.

Breathtaking Natural Experiences: Just metres from the ocean, and a short drive to the hinterland, our location offers easy access to over 100,000 hectares of World Heritage Rainforest, kilometres of iconic beaches and the world-famous Byron Bay.

Affordable Accommodation: With over 4,000 rooms (from one-bedroom apartments to 5-star hotels) within walking distance, delegates are spoilt for choice.

Food for all Tastes: The Gold Coast is home to 22 hatted restaurants as well as drive through, eat in, al fresco and seaside choices. Nearby Pacific Fair Shopping Centre and Broadbeach Mall also offer restaurants and bars that cater to all budgets and food tastes. 

Climate: With an average of 300 days of sunshine a year, the options for indoor and outdoor activities are endless.

Team building

When your delegates visit the Gold Coast, they’re likely expecting some fun... and they’ve certainly got the right idea.

The city is full of activities perfect for conventioneers or business event delegates hoping to make their stay special: on-water adventures, adrenalised action, chilled eco-experiences and Australian wildlife and Indigenous adventures.

Our iconic oceanfront hosts everything from yachting to kayaking and deep sea fishing, while groups looking for a change of pace might try a V8 Supercars experience or a hair-raising jetboat ride.

Our famous theme parks offer corporate packages for bucket list items such as swimming with SeaWorld’s dolphins or getting up close and personal with the spellbinding tigers at Dreamworld.

When you add to the list some of Australia’s best golf courses, whale watching and even the chance to learn to surf, the only limit becomes your imagination.
