Coolangatta/Kirra

Located on the Queensland and New South border Coolangatta is the Gold Coast’s most southern city. Affectionately known as ‘Cooly’, this beautiful coastal suburb is renowned for its world class beaches & tranquil natural beauty, it has grown from a small beach-side town into a thriving business, shopping and holiday location that offers something a little more relaxed, and a little less commercialised than that of it’s northern counterparts. Home to the best surfing break on the Gold Coast, Coolangatta plays host to one of the biggest surfing events on the ASP World Tour calendar, the Quiksilver & Roxy Pro. This unique suburb exudes an old-school beach-side charm combined with an array of world-class oceanfront hotels, eateries & shopping precincts. A stunning walking trail wraps around Greenmount Hill connecting to Rainbow Bay from which you can look back towards the Surfers Paradise skyline and take in the entire Gold Coast coastline.
