This coastal city is located in south-eastern Queensland, some 94 kilometres south of Brisbane, the state capital. Gold Coast is the 6th most populated city in Australia and the largest of any non-capital city in the entire country with some 3 million inhabitants.
Gold Coast started to attract visitors around 40 years ago and today is a major destination for tourists thanks in part to its beaches, canals and waterways, impressive high-rise skyline and sub-tropical climate. Its many facilities and attractions have recently received the recognition they deserve with Gold Coast winning the contest to host the 2018 Commonwealth Games.
While the car is by far the mode of transportation most favoured by its inhabitants, the city also has an impressive network of public transport for commuters and tourists alike and includes bus, taxi, ferry, rail and monorail.
With regard to room share, the large student contingent gathers in areas such as Arundel, Burleigh Heads and the appropriately named Surfers Paradise. Gold Coast’s professionals enjoy a wide choice of locations with Robina, Southport and rooms for rent in Oxenford, on top of the list of the best suburbs to live in.
