Gold Coast

Word From the Mayor

more than a year ago

The Gold Coast is a city inspired by lifestyle, and driven by opportunity.

Our 600,000 residents enjoy more than 300 days of sunshine annually, and are proud to call this part of Australia home.

The Gold Coast is famous as Australia’s No 1 tourism destination. Each year, we welcome 13 million visitors and in April 2018, will host the Commonwealth Games.

This is the first time the Games have been held in a regional city and we are ready to roll out the welcome mat to athletes, officials, families and friends – plus 1.5 billion television viewers.

The Gold Coast has what many other cities can only dream of: a true have-a-go-spirit.

We rise to the challenges and unite in business, sport, the arts and culture to make our city one of the most liveable in the world.

Our people are friendly and carefree and enjoy sharing their stories with visitors who seek out an authentic Australian experience.

At the same time, we are driven to broaden our economy from tourism and construction to manufacturing, IT and health and medical science.

As Mayor, it is a privilege to represent the Gold Coast locally, nationally and internationally.

See you when you visit the amazing GC.
