Some useful Facts and Tips regarding the Australian Nanny Association Nanny Convention

We invite you to enjoy the Convention while experiencing Australia's Gold Coast in Queensland. The Gold Coast is a city coming of age. Strategically located on the edge of the Asia-Pacific rim, with access to two international airports, the Gold Coast is perfectly positioned as a destination for business, investment, study, sport, events, tourism and lifestyle.

The Gold Coast stretches along 57 kilometres of coastline and is home to over half a million people. Beyond the city’s beautiful beaches are vast, sub-tropical rainforests with breathtaking scenery.

Welcoming close to 12 million visitors each year, the Gold Coast is full of attractions and things to do. As Australia’s premier tourist destination, the city offers a vibrant mix of shopping, accommodation, theme parks, restaurants, entertainment and events, along with an abundance of natural attractions.

The Gold Coast has developed into a diverse, cosmopolitan, forward-thinking city with a future full of promise. As host city for the Commonwealth GamesTM in 2018, the Gold Coast is embracing transformative civic projects like never before, with more than $13.5 billion in major infrastructure projects planned or underway set to change the face of the city in a way that is distinctly their own.
