  • 5Im delighted to extend to you an invitation to visit our beautiful city to undertake training as part of your high performance sporting program.

    Millions of visitors flock to Gold Coast City each year to experience our world-famous beaches and majestic World-Heritage listed rainforests. Within this idyllic setting lies the fastest growing city in Australia, with a population of 515,000.

    Our city has a long history as a centre for sporting excellence, with a proud sporting tradition and dynamic can-do attitude. Sporting teams have access to natural resources and purpose-built facilities to assist with preparation for major competition. Pleasant summers and warm winters make for an environment fit for year-round training.

    Excellent facilities, expert sports science capabilities and dedicated sport-friendly accommodation make training in our city effective and enjoyable.

    As a former Olympic athlete, I understand the requirements of elite athletes. Thats why our city has created Sport Gold Coast. Designed to be a one-stop shop for national and international sporting teams, Sport Gold Coast can assist squads with location enquiries, facilities, sports science, accommodation and more.

    Were not just about sport though. Our citys strategic location and low-cost base also make it a hot-spot for business growth.

    Driving our business sector is our economic development arm, BusinessGC. Funded by the Gold Coast City Council, BusinessGC is responsible for developing a sustainable Gold Coast City economy through industry development initiatives and investment attraction programs.

    Gold Coast Citys relaxed lifestyle and diverse attractions continue to make the region one of Australias most popular and enduring tourism destinations. We are committed to sharing our success with you, so read on and find out a little more about our great city and what we have to offer you.

  • 7Queensland and interstate sporting teams have enjoyed the benefits of training on the Gold Coast for many years, but the 2000 Sydney Olympics opened the doors for teams from around the world. More than 1300 athletes from 15 countries trained in the city during the lead up to the games. Since then a growing number of sporting teams have flocked to the Gold Coast time and again.

    World-class training venues are within minutes of two international airports. As well as boasting Olympic-standard swimming pools and athletics facilities, the Gold Coast also offers incredible cross-training locations.

    Sporting teams can make use of 55 kilometres of sandy beaches with a 36-kilometre network of pathways, stretching from the Gold Coast Seaway in the north, to the Point Danger Lighthouse in the south. Alternatively, teams can head to the Hinterland and train on several leafy rainforest tracks.

    Great weather means sporting teams are able to train outdoors more often. The region receives an average of 10 hours sunshine a day for approximately 300 days a year.

    Gold Coast City is widely acknowledged as one of the best sports training locations in the world. Fabulous weather, superb facilities, sports science specialists and a welcoming local community combine to make the region ideal for sports training.
