Certainly one of the great resort destinations in the world.

The many hi-rise apartment and hotel towers give the Gold Coast a unique feel of a city in the midst of paradise.

The stretch of coastline from Runaway Bay in the north to Coolangatta in the south is 30 kilometers long.The first highrises appeared in the late 1950s and now the Gold Coast boasts the tallest apartment building in the world with the 322 meter Q1 Tower.
