Gold Coast Sailing

The Gold Coast is the great destination for a sailing holiday. Whether you are a beginner or an experienced sailor, there are several fine opportunities to sail in the Gold Coast. Beginners can learn to sail dinghies in the enchanting surroundings of the main beaches, Surfers Paradise or further afield in Coolangatta or North Stradbroke whilst experienced sailors can explore the Gold Coast’s fabulous man-made lake and drink in all the fantastic scenery. Organised tours also allow you to experience the thrill of real sailing and are freely available from South Stradbroke, the Marina’s Mirage and Fisherman’s Wharf near the Main Beach or along River Drive in Surfers. Sailing holidays in the Gold Coast are available all year round and the prices vary depending on the time of year and the length of time you wish to sail. So while there are not a huge amount of sailing locations in the Gold Coast, those available are close to the city centre, well serviced with many competitively-priced sailing companies and very safe.
