Gold Coast Accommodation

Gold Coast accommodation rates are among the best in the world and whether you are staying for one day or one month, there will be options to suit any budget. If you are a backpacker traveling around, chances are you will be on a tight budget and wanting something in the lower price range. Prices usually start around $20 for a bed in a hostel, sharing the room with a number of people (usually 2 - 6), with the price rising for more private accommodation. The hostels on the Gold Coast are clean and social, usually with a range of facilities available such as a pool, TV, computers and common room. Find your best Gold Coast accommodation here.

For people with a higher budget, prices go up thousands of dollars a day to stay in a six star resort like Palazzo Versace. If your budget is somewhere in betweeen, you can grab an apartment near or even on the beach for $80 - $300 a night, depending on the season and star rating. There's a never-ending amount of options for anybody, whether you are a family, a couple, or even just one person.
