About Us

Our city vision
Defined by our spectacular beaches, hinterland ranges, forests and waterways, the Gold Coast is an outstanding city which celebrates nature and connects distinct communities with the common goal of sustainability, choice and wellbeing for all.

Our mission
Leading the way towards a bold future that can sustain growth and economic development while retaining a lifestyle that is uniquely 'Gold Coast'.

Arts and Craft
The Gold Coast has a thriving arts and craft sector supported by regular community markets at locations throughout the city and promoted through various craft organisations, exhibitions and events.
There are many unique local pieces of art and craft for sale at markets, galleries and gift shops that make special mementos of a Gold Coast holiday or signature decoration pieces for the home or office.

It's official, the Gold Coast is a star performer on the national cultural arena.
The city has a calendar of major arts and cultural events which appeals to a variety of interests from food and wine to music, literature, sculpture and film festivals, and nostalgic celebrations of the 50s and 60s.

Film, television and entertainment is the Gold Coast�s largest 'creative industry' sector and pioneered international film production in Australia since the late 1980s and continues strongly today.
