Three Cool Options For Gold Coast Accommodation: Places To Stay In Queensland’s Gold Coast

By Bailey Jamieson

This brief article examines some Gold Coast accommodation choices (Gold Coast Australia). This destination, which has a sunny and sub-tropical climate, is most famous for sixty kilometres of great surfing coastline, but there are also many other attractions for the tourist. For example there are six large theme parks, four sports teams competing at Australian national level (football, rugby league, basketball and ice hockey), and over forty golf courses. The scenery is good too! Many, many kilometres of canals and waterways, and the beautiful and wild mountain ranges and rain forests of the Gold Coast Hinterland.

Visitors to the hinterland area may wish to consider staying at the Ruffles Lodge in Willow Vale. This is about half-way between the beaches and the mountains. From here you can easily visit the Tamborine Mountain, Springbrook, and Lamington National Parks, but you are still just a twenty five minute drive from the beaches, shopping centres and nightlife of Surfers Paradise and Gold Coast. Convenient local wineries and vineyards also make an enjoyable excursion for guests.

Ruffles Lodge is the only five star lodge and spa in the Gold Coast. It has its own practice golf area and there are sixteen golf courses within thirty minutes drive. There is a fine restaurant here. The comprehensive wine list includes vintage as well as more general wines.

Probably the most famous and most popular coastal resort on Gold Coast is Surfers Paradise. The town owes its name to Brisbane hotelier Jim Cavill. He founded Surfers Paradise Hotel in 1925 the town of Elston. In 1933 he persuaded the locals to change the town’s name to Surfers Paradise. The town and resort has grown around his original hotel. Cavill Avenue, one of the busiest shopping streets in Queensland is named after him.

Families visiting Surfers Paradise might like the Paradise Centre Apartments. Shopping should be convenient: the accommodation is built on top of a shopping centre. There is also a walkway leading to the beach. The apartments, which have from one to three bedrooms, are inside two thirty storey towers. All apartments have balconies with views of the Pacific Ocean.

Apartments here have all the facilities needed by those with children: cable TV, laundry and kitchen. As you would expect in a large apartment complex there is plenty to do without leaving the complex: tennis courts, two swimming pools, a paddling pool for youngsters. Also spa, sauna and sun-deck if you get tired of all that exercise. Golf fans are catered for on site by a putting green, and as is normal for the area, many golf courses are within a few minutes drive.

Other visitors may want something a bit quieter, and with six hundred kilometres of waterway in the Gold Coast, you can imagine that waterfront living is an good option. A quiet location to stay can be found in the 21 apartment Surfers Del Rey Riverfront Apartments.

Surfers Del Rey has one and two bedroom apartments, sleeping up to five people. All have private balconies. Most apartments have a view of the pool, the river or the tropical courtyard gardens. These apartments are a short walk from the beach and from cafes, restaurants, shops and nightclubs. All apartments have kitchen and laundry facilities. The communal areas in the complex have spa, swimming pool, barbecue and a private fishing jetty.

The Queensland Gold Coast is definitely one of the planet’s most fabulous getaway hot spots and is without doubt jam packed with sight-seeing possibilities for all age groups.
