What are the best places to visit on the Gold Coast?

By Andrew Bell

When people are looking for a new place to live, they tend to opt for the places that will offer an attractive lifestyle, lots of fun things to do and, above all for many Australians, great access to the beach!

The region offers all of these and more – you can make the move easily by looking for a Gold Coast rental property from which to base your next chapters on. Once you've experienced the lifestyle on offer, you'll probably want to buy your very own patch of real estate here. We can make that a breeze.

But what's on around the Gold Coast that might interest you? There are plenty of sights and sounds that are perfect for the whole family.

The beaches are a great start

We don't just mean any old beaches either. White sands, crystal clear waters and incredible surf breaks have been drawing tourists for years and years.

Burleigh Heads is a great option just south of the CBD. The beach side village will steal your heart, and the perfect barrels mean that your grommets can spend hours in the surf, rather than in front of their screens. There are places to eat and sit as well as swimming spots for the kids and adults alike.

Currumbin is a little further down the coast, but the calmer waters here might be better for those who can't swim, or even if someone in the family is learning how to stand-up paddle board! The patrolled waters will mean your loved ones are safe at all times. Even if you've got your base in Surfers Paradise real estate, there are many more beaches to explore than the one down the end of your road. Get out and explore the region – you won't be disappointed.

Gold Coast real estate offers more than just surf and sand

For the more adventurous among you, the Tamborine Rainforest offers a number of sights and sounds to experience. There is a treetop walk that puts you up in the lofty heights with the birds and other wildlife you're unlikely to see in the city, while the glow worm caves at Tamborine Mountain will give avid explorers the opportunity of a lifetime to see some of the natural world's most extraordinary creatures.

The beachfront markets in Surfers Paradise offer more than 100 stalls of artisanal wares and food from the surrounding areas, and it might just be a Sunday afternoon stroll to see them. Why not sample the local goods? If you're living in the city, there's plenty more to do than first meets the eye. Sure, the sun and surf are very attractive, but buying property on the Gold Coast is much more than just that.

There are also two sites of historical significance to the residents of the Gold Coast, both war memorials. The first is the Pimpana and Ormeau War Memorial, that lies between the city and Brisbane. It was a tribute to the seven local men that died in the First World War over 100 years ago, and is a great spot for remembrance.

The second is the Greenmount War Memorial, which was originally unveiled in 1922. This statue now lies in the Greenmount Bicentennial Memorial Park, and is a tribute to the 184 men from the township who enlisted as well as the 27 who never made it back.

The Gold Coast has a lot to offer, and there are so many activities and sights for families and young couples alike to experience.
