Family sized self-contained apartments
If your posse is planning an extended stay on the Coast, self-contained apartments are arguably the best option for families, friends and other travel groups. Spcious one, two and three bedroom apartments can be found even in the heart of Surfers Paradise, with full kitchen and laundry facilities so you can save your spending money for a night on the town and not have to worry about carting the beach home with you.
Self-contained Gold Coast apartments are often basic and light on the wallet, but can also come with lashings of luxury such as the Hilton, Sea Temple and the lofty Q1 – all located within easy reach of the Surfers Paradise shoreline – and Broadbeach's multiple Mantra hotels.
Keep calm and stay by the airport
The Gold Coast Airport is on the cusp of two states; its runway passing through both New South Wales and Queensland. Perched on the boundary of southern NSW and northern QLD, the airport's official location is Coolangatta (OOL) and is an easy trip along the Gold Coast Highway to Palm Beach, Mermaid Beach, Broadbeach and Surfers Paradise.
If you're arriving late or just passing through, there is plenty of Gold Coast accommodation conveniently located in the suburbs of Bilinga and Kirra, including beachside apartments so you can refresh your senses in the surf and comfortable mid-rise resorts with private access to the golden sands that lend their name to the region.
Settle into theme park central
The Gold Coast's "famous for fun" tagline makes perfect sense as soon as you enter the gates of the theme parks that define the region as the ideal family holiday destination. Warner Bros. Movie World, Dreamworld, Sea World and Wet 'n' Wild Water World are the perfect backdrop for creating lasting holiday memories.
Stay at Main Beach for a quick shuttle to Sea World Resort and Water Park, with the waterfront Marina Mirage shopping centre also nearby if you'd prefer to check out the bargains instead of belugas. Kids haven't exhausted their energy levels at Dreamworld? Check in to one of Paradise Resort's dedicated junior-themed rooms – happy kids, happy holiday.
