Luxury residences, world class facilities, and a prolific entertainment scene mark the Gold Coast as the lifestyle location of choice. Seeking a life well lived?
In the late 1940’s, there wasn’t much more to the Town of the South Coast, as it was called back then, than a string of milk bars and beach shacks catering to the Australian and Allied Armed Forces on R&R during World War II.
As its population grew, buildings spilled swiftly up and down the coastline until on May 16, 1959, it was proclaimed the City of the Gold Coast. While the name was used to describe the concurrent real estate boom, it was also fitting for the healthy way of life, golden sands and sunshine that it’s famous for.
Many still travel to this famous coastal haven to holiday 50 years on, and is now affectionately known as home to more than half a million people all enjoying a better life, whatever that may mean to them, by the sea.
Today, the Gold Coast’s glass towers are superimposed between glistening beaches and lush rolling hinterland. What was once just a coastal holiday town is now a thriving metropolis. A place to grow up, a place to raise your family, to explore the great outdoors, to get an education. A place to build your empire, or buy your dream home. A base for that next big adventure or somewhere to simply enjoy your golden years.
The Gold Coast is an iconic tourist destination for a reason and while many travel from across the globe to experience it – the fortunate ones (like us) get to live it every day.
