Gold Coast for Students
The Gold Coast’s climate is subtropical, with warm (occasionally hot) summers and mild winters. This is great for all of the outdoor activities, such as surfing, that the South- eastern part of the state is so well known for.
Reliable public transport throughout the Gold Coast is also a great benefit of studying in this region, with students eligible for concession fares that are half the regular rate. TransLink also runs train and ferry services. Cycling is also widely encouraged.
