The Gold Coast is a city of Approximately 600,000 people, facing onto the Pacific Ocean. It is a year round equitable climate, with cool dry winters (average daily maximum of 20 degrees C) and warm, wetter summers (average daily maximum of around 30 degrees C). The air is clean, and there is no heavy industry, with the main commerce being health, education, and tourism. Behind the Gold Coast is the hinterland, with world heritage listed rainforest.
The city is cosmopolitan, with 30% of the population being born in another country (typical of Australia's international mix). In short, the Gold Coast is a safe, welcoming, and comfortable place to live. I hope this information is sufficient.
