Friendly locals? Check. See you in the land Down Under!

The Gold Coast is one of Australia's fastest-growing cities, known for its beautiful beaches, sporting events, and outdoor activities. With 32 miles of beaches and 300 sunny days each year, locals and tourists alike agree that the Gold Coast has some of the best surfing in the world. And, the city is located near some of Australia's most valued treasures, including the Great Barrier Reef, inland mountains, and tropical rain forests!
While living on the Gold Coast, students will have endless opportunities to explore their surroundings. Just fifteen minutes away from Bond University, you'll find a buzzing city filled with award-winning restaurants, cafes, festivals, shopping, and nightlife. Enjoy the beach during the day, explore farmers markets and festivals in the afternoon, and dine on international cuisine at night.
Want to escape the city life and encounter some wildlife? Plan a visit to the Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, where you can pet kangaroos and take a photo with a koala! Also, with quick access to the local airport, you can easily travel to Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, and other major cities in Australia.
If you're a sports fan, don't miss the opportunity to see The Commonwealth Games in 2018, one of the largest elite multi-sport events in the world. It's the equivalent to staging fifteen world championships simultaneously! The Commonwealth Games will be the biggest international sporting event in Australia for a decade and the largest ever hosted by the Gold Coast.
Whether you’re looking for a quiet day by the shore, a fun-filled surfing lesson, or time in the city, the Gold Coast has it all.
