A quick guide to: The Gold Coast

Talk to anyone from outside Australia and they have probably heard of the stunning Gold Coast region. It’s a mecca for tourism and car hire with Visit Gold Coast reporting the 2013-14 financial year saw over 11 million visitor arrivals grace its sparkling shores. By comparison, Sydney – arguably our most famous city – saw barely 9 million in the same time period, based on Destination NSW stats.

To put this maths into plain English – this sun-soaked seaside area is incredibly popular, and well worth putting on your Australian road trip holiday plans.

Where to see Australia's unique attractions

Australia is a one-of-a-kind place. It is a continent all on its own, and is home to the world’s oldest living culture – the Aboriginal people – who date back to between 50-65,000 thousands years ago.

European settlers arrived from the late 1700s, bringing with them convicts and budding farmers alike, turning the land Down Under into a farming and gold mining heaven – or a prisoner’s hell.

This diverse and lengthy history has shaped what is now one of the most fascinating countries to visit on a road trip holiday. If you are wondering what to do in Australia, grab your hire car and check out some of these unique activities.
