Discover Coolangatta

Warm in the winter, and cool in summer. Coolangatta is the original Gold Coast beach destination and has grown from a tucked-away holiday village into the thriving Southern Gold Coast CBD.

Coolangatta is a hub of activity on the Southern Gold Coast, featuring an abundance of shops, essential services, al fresco restaurants, cafes, clubs, pubs, live entertainment, cinemas and beachfront markets. It’s also home to several beautiful beaches and a vibrant foreshore with extensive parkland, BBQ areas and pathways for locals and holidaymakers to enjoy.

There are plenty of beachfront accommodation options lining the esplanade, making Coolangatta a great base for your Southern Gold Coast holiday with ocean views stretching all the way to the impressive Surfers Paradise skyline in the north.

Dolphins can often be seen frolicking from the rocky headland that stretches past Greenmount Beach, and Coolangatta is a great vantage point for spotting whales out to sea as they pass by on their annual northerly migration from May to November.  

The twin towns of Coolangatta and Tweed Heads have long lived synonymously side by side, with the best of both words to enjoy in the border region. To celebrate the warm winter days, every year Coolangatta and Tweed host Cooly Rocks On, Australia’s largest nostalgia festival celebrating the best of the 50s and 60s over 10 fun-filled days in June.
