With a sub- tropical climate, white beaches and rainforest hinterland, the Gold Coast is a prime holiday vacation for people from Australia and abroad. There is never any shortage of activities in the city. Gold Coast beaches are famous worldwide for surfing and are a hit with both locals and tourists. Surfing, windsurfing and Para-sailing are some popular beach activities.  images (12)
