Invest Gold Coast
Within the span of fifty years, the Gold Coast has grown from a small beach side holiday destination to Australia’s sixth largest city.
The Gold Coast is located in the middle of the booming South East Queensland corridor, with a population of more than 538,000 people and a catchment area of over three million. The population is expected to grow to 730,000 people by 2026, based on a 2.5 per cent annual growth rate.
With a strong regional economy valued at over A$24 billion, the region remains one of the fastest-growing urban development areas in Australia.
Growing from a platform of tourism and construction, the Gold Coast industry has diversified in to knowledge based sectors – including education, health and medical, information communication technology, marine and sport.
A combination of lower costs, a highly-skilled local workforce, world-class infrastructure and a supportive business environment offer an ideal location conducive to achieving business success.
Famous for its sun, surf and sand, the Gold Coast stretches along 57 kilometres of coastline. Beyond the city’s beautiful beaches are a vast array of world heritage-listed rainforests with breathtaking scenery – all a short drive from our regional centres. Our natural attractions combined with the highest density of attractions in the southern hemisphere and a range of accommodation, shopping and entertainment options make the Gold Coast a tourism mecca. Each year we welcome close to 12 million people to our city.
City of Gold Coast has an investment attraction program to help you to relocate a business or invest in the city. Services range from financial assistance, to introductions and workforce development. Contact us to find out how we can assist you.
