The Gold Coast is a city coming of age. It is a place of opportunity that, over the next decade, will transform into a globally-recognised city while retaining its enviable lifestyle and stunning natural environment.

Strategically located on the edge of the Asia-Pacific firm, with access to two international airports, the Gold Coast is perfectly positioned as a destination for business, investment, study, sport, events, tourism and lifestyle.

The Gold Coast stretches along 57 kilometres of coastline and is home to more than half a million people.

Beyond the city’s beautiful beaches are vast, sub-tropical rain forests with breathtaking scenery.

The city enjoys a  five-year average annual growth rate of two per cent and has access to an economic catchment of 3.6 million people.

Welcoming more than 11 million visitors each year, the Gold Coast is one of Australia’s premier tourist destinations, offering a vibrant mix of shopping, accommodation, theme parks, restaurants, entertainment and an abundance of natural attractions.

With a robust economy valued at over $25 billion, and an ambitious strategy that encourages innovation and sustainable growth, the Gold Coast’s future is full of promise. Ours is an economy of opportunity that has grown from its basis in tourism and construction to a diverse, knowledge-based economic environment.

New infrastructure and innovation in the Information Technology (IT), health, education and advanced manufacturing sectors are redefining the Gold Coast’s economic profile and creating opportunities in education, research, employment, enterprise and investment.

A city that encourages forward-thinking, is strong in its support of new and creative solutions and is bold in its attitude to growth and development, it’s easy to see why the Gold Coast is home to a dynamic combination of start-ups, co-working spaces and research and education institutions, including three universities.
