This is a place that doesn't take itself seriously, family-friendly attractions and beautiful coastline make it Australia's sixth biggest city. Think Las Vegas, Dubai or Miami and you'll get the feel of the place.
A magnificent 70km stretch of sand is edged with sky-high sky scrapers. The traditional home of the Yugambeh people is a city where you'll find glorious surf, rousing sunsets, major night clubs, bars and theme parks. It's the perfect place to party, yet behind the concrete towers lie the resplendent ancient wildlife of the hinterland – a majestic subtropical rainforest waiting to be explored.
From the strip you'll enjoy watersports, marine wildlife, parasailing, shopping, world-class theme parks, galleries, museums and more. Head into the hinterland and you'll find ancient rainforest, waterfalls, gorges, unique wildlife, wine tours, spa retreats, hot air ballooning and historic sites. It's a fascinating blend of contrasting terrains which means there's always a variety of options to keep everyone happy.
With great gastronomy, serene oceanside restaurants and a sublime array of luxury villas, always with breathtaking views, the Gold Coast is the perfect family break, everyone in the family will enjoy.

WhiteWater World is said to be the most technologically advanced water park in the world with exhilarating slides, one of the world's two LIM-powered rocket coasters and the globe's only 8-lane Octopus Racer.

Take one of the many treks through Lamington National Park in the hinterland. Once a volcanic landscape, today the rainforest is more than 225 million years old. You'll relish walking amongst the ancient trees and fauna with the park's breathtaking vistas its biggest draw.
Amongst rare and unique rainforest wildlife, you'll find gushing waterfalls on the waterfall circuit, including Morans Falls with Morans Creek Gorge close by.

The best airport for the Gold Cost is Gold Coast Airport.
With year round sun and warm temperatures all year, you can visit the Gold Coast at any time of the year. Yet as a major holiday destination, there are some times when the Gold Coast is busier than others.
For the best time to visit when it's not so busy, April and May are the quietest months when you'll avoid clashing with any school holidays and the chance of rain is extremely low. For the best whale watching, visit between July and September. From mid November to March, the Gold Coast is at its busiest with Schoolies Week then Christmas and school holidays.

In 2005, John Paul Donnelly, began his luxury villa journey. He spent three years building resorts and holiday apartments in Alanya, Turkey, along with his brother, Joe. The concept was to create the most luxurious villas on the Turkish coastline and provide clients, along with their family and friends, the opportunity to enjoy exclusive holidays together.
By 2008, after the successful development of 3 resorts, JP had well and truly fallen into the world of villa rentals. With a portfolio of 6 villas and a desire to explore new places, he decided it was time to take the villa rental business outside of Turkey. He wanted to give his clients access to beautiful holiday rentals in destinations across the globe.
The expanding villa rental company was rebranded in 2011 to 5 Star Villa Holidays, and today 5 Star Villa Holidays offers over 4,000 luxury villas around the world.
