Northern Gold Coast Sanctuary

Nestled in the heart of Sanctuary Cove, the resort is located just minutes from the iconic Marine Village and an award-winning Marina. From the maze of boutiques and cafes in the Village, to access to three of the Gold Coast’s most sought-after golf courses, you will also find yourself within 15 minutes of Queensland’s famous theme parks, including Dreamworld, Warner Bros. Movie World, Wet ‘n’ Wild and Seaworld.

Renowned as a playground of shimmering coastal lines, endless outdoor fun and an icon of natural beauty, Queensland’s Gold Coast is the golden child of sun, sand and surf. A short 40 minutes north of Surfers Paradise, you will discover the palm-lined oasis of Sanctuary Cove: a rare mix of accessibility and seclusion; moments from urban amenities yet surrounded with a relaxed coastal ambiance.
