One of Australia's best-known holiday destinations is the region known as the ‘Gold Coast’. It stretches from Beenleigh and South Stradbroke Island‚ in the north‚ to Cabarita Beach‚ in NSW‚ along 70 kilometres of beachfront that faces the Pacific Ocean south of Brisbane. The Gold Coast encompasses a massive‚ lush rainforest hinterland that is edged with 35 white sandy beaches. These beaches are patrolled by surf lifesavers throughout the year. As well as beaches‚ the Gold Coast is famous for its theme parks‚ including Dreamworld‚ Sea World Warner Brothers' Movie World and Wet 'n' Wild Water World.
