The coastal summer holiday featuring Mum, Dad, the kids and the family dog is one of Australia’s oldest and greatest traditions.

For many Australian holidaymakers, the destination of choice is the sunny Gold Coast in Queensland which has something to offer every holiday demographic.

Buying A Holiday Unit On The GC

Whether you are planning to invest in a holiday unit that you will rent out through a real estate or turn into a holiday property through Airbnb, you will want something that is able to attract potential holidaymakers all year round.

Here are a couple of other factors that you need to consider before making an investment.

It’s All About Location

The beauty of a Gold Coast holiday is the variety. There are so many different things that you can do which makes it very appealing to a huge range of different people.

Your holiday activities could include:

  • Soaking up the sun on some of the best beaches in the world such as Surfers Paradise, Broadbeach or Main Beach to name a few.
  • Experiencing all kinds of tourist attractions including things like Jet Boating, stunt plane rides, the Q1 climb, Top Golf, skydiving and many, many more activities.
  • Visit the big 4 theme parks including Dreamworld, Wet n Wild, Movieworld and Seaworld.
  • Visit Mt Tamborine, known as the ‘green behind the gold’ and discover a tiny town that is filled with fine wines, brewery’s, chocolate fudge and a beautiful rainforest.
  • Experience fine dining or hit up the Gold Coast nightlife in Surfers Paradise, Broadbeach or take the house at The Star Hotel and Casino.

With the advent of the light rail, it has become even easier to access all of the fantastic things that the Gold Coast has to offer.

Choose to buy a holiday apartment that is located somewhere central such as Surfers Paradise or Main Beach. This will give you and your guests easy access to all of the coast.

Choose The Right Beach

In order to ensure that your holiday unit attracts visitors all year round, it needs to be situated on an appealing beach.

One thing that is great about the Gold Coast is the world-class beaches which there is quite a few to choose from. A long beach with clean surf is ideal and it is a bonus if it is patrolled by lifesavers to give parents peace of mind.

Night time is also important to think about and it is a good idea to choose a beach that also has some popular nightspots along with a licensed venue that remains open until late.

If you can get a mix of these elements, you can attract high-income guests and families on holiday all year round.

On the Gold Coast, there are three locations that are a good fit which include Surfers Paradise, Broadbeach and Main Beach.


Choose A Great Property

The best beachside properties are houses, but there are few and far between. Apartments are generally more modern, readily available and are situated within a 2-minute walk to the beach.

Ideal apartments will have an open plan living style and also feature a generous balcony. A lock-up garage will allow tenants to keep their car off the street and store holiday equipment for water sports or fishing.

Main Beach features many apartment complexes that are within 1-2 minutes’ walk from the beach. There is also a smattering of local cafes, bars and boutique stores offering high-end fashion, as well as easy access to public transport.

For our furry friends, there is dog-friendly beach located at The Spit which is only a 3-minute drive to the Northern side and there is also Wavebreak Island which can make a nice day trip.

Main Beach is a little quieter than the hustle and bustle of Surfers Paradise or Broadbeach, which makes it more suitable for the holidaying family.
