Famous for its surf beaches, national parks, waterways, and mountain ranges, the Gold Coast has a population of over 400,000 and is an extremely popular tourist destination for visitors worldwide. Catering to such an international tourist crowd, the Gold Coast has excellent shopping and an enormous selection of fine cuisines from all corners of the world. Along the beach any surfer will find home and entertainment lines the shore with the many theme parks and attractions. If searching for a break from the vacationing mobs, head to the little-visited, near-by national parks. These are some of Queensland’s best and provide a welcome sanctuary.
