Location and travel


Destination Gold Coast

  Spanning across more than 57 kilometres of picturesque coastline and bordered by world-heritage listed rainforest, the Gold Coast is Australia's premier tourist destination.   The Gold Coast is a metropolitan region south of Brisbane on Australia’s east coast. It's famed for its long sandy beaches, surfing spots and elaborate system of inland canals and waterways. It’s also home to hiking trails that crisscross Lamington National Park’s mountain ridges and valleys, home to rare birds and rainforest.  


 Whether you are visiting Australia for a short period of time or planning to stay several years, you must have a valid Australian visa. A visa is a form of permission for a non-citizen to enter, transit or remain in a particular country.  Briefly, if you are a US citizen and hold a valid US passport, you may be eligible for an Electronic Travel Authority (ETA). ETAs are free of charge and most are issued automatically. Take this quick survey to explore the Visa requirements for your visit.
