Five reasons you should invest in the Gold Coast now
Many Australian cities boast a close proximity to stunning, world-class white-sand beaches, but there is only one that is defined by it.
Situated between 52 kilometres of beaches and pristine hinterland, it is no wonder that more than one million international visitors arrive in the Gold Coast each year, and more than half a million Australians call it home.
1. Investment from the Commonwealth Games
More than $5 billion worth of public or private investment is underway, or was recently completed, in part thanks to the 2018 Commonwealth Games.
2. An ever-evolving skyline of high-rises
The unique, linear layout of the Gold Coast is thanks, in part, to its striking skyline of coastal high-rises. While there are already a number of impressive towers, there are several more planned to meet growing demand.
3. More than $12.5b being spent on infrastructure and transport
Extensive urban planning of the Gold Coast has ensured that its growth is well serviced by efficient transport links.
4. Tourism continues to rise
Tourism has been the backbone of the Gold Coast economy since the Surfers Paradise hotel was built in 1925. Long a summer escape for Brisbane families, it now attracts more than 13 million visitors a year.
5. Some of the country’s best attractions
Most Australians are familiar with the Gold Coast’s reputation as the go-to destination for theme parks, with Dreamworld, Wet’n’Wild and Movie World all making their mark as must-visit destinations.
