Australia’s Southern Gold Coast is located at the southeastern border of Queensland and New South Wales, offering a spectacular gateway to the Sunshine State. With an inviting subtropical climate all year round, the Southern Gold Coast boasts a perfect mix of coastal and hinterland attractions throughout the region.
