The bright lights of Surfers Paradise are captivating, but the Gold Coast bubbles with less-explored neighbourhoods offering unique slices of holiday heaven. From the chilled-out beach culture of Coolangatta and the dynamic bars and eateries of Burleigh Heads to Southport’s spacious parklands and Mt Tamborine’s hinterland hideouts, a broad spectrum of charms awaits.

Gold Coast hotels and motels

Whether you’re craving spoils or just desperate for a beachfront break, Gold Coast accommodation ticks a lot of boxes. Stellar lodgings can be found everywhere, but especially within Surfers Paradise, Broadbeach, and Main Beach where the likes of The Langham, QT Gold Coast, The Darling, and the unapologetically decadent Palazzo Versace lie. The southern Gold Coast is also worth a squiz, playing home to more relaxed picks including The Pink Hotel, a 1960s time warp right on Coolangatta beach, and Tessa’s on the Beach, another retro-inspired oasis.
