Australia Gold Coast

Live a laid back lifestyle while learning English on the sunny and beautiful Gold Coast of Australia.

The Gold Coast of Australia is one of the most popular metropolitan regions in the country. Visitors come from all over the world to enjoy the beaches, theme parks, rainforests, surfing and year-round sunshine. Living and studying English in this lovely part of the world, you’ll enjoy hip restaurants and bars, excellent shopping, lovely cafes, water sports, golf, tennis, culture and more, as you experience the enviable Australian way of life!

While it’s the long sandy beaches and surfing that have made the Gold Coast most famous, inland lies a lush hinterland waiting to be explored. You can visit the World heritage rainforest ecosystems at Springbrook and Laminton, see an ancient volcano or cuddle a koala at the Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary. You could also take a walk along the O’Reilly’s Tree Top Walkway, which features nine suspension bridges through the Lamington National Park forest canopy, home to rare birds and rainforest.

The Gold Coast stretches along the coast and has an intricate system of inland canals and waterways. Its people are friendly, laid back and welcoming and you’ll make new friends inside and outside your college.
