Why Gold Coast is such a great place to live

For many Kiwis, living on the Gold Coast is their ultimate destination. It’s the place we went to on holiday and never wanted to leave. That’s why it’s currently one of the most popular landing spots for families, retirees, adventurers, and job seekers moving from NZ to Australia. With a population of over 630,000 the city of Gold Coast is a vibrant, modern city, built on 57kms of coastline and some of the world’s most famous surf beaches. What surprises many is the vast hinterland and lush rainforests which are just a short distance from most coastal locations.

The Gold Coast is simply an awesome place to live. It’s a city where you can find the perfect life balance, between work, studies, and social interactions. Best of all there’s year round sunshine. If you’re looking for excitement there’s a playground of theme parks, water sports, top end shops, delicious food and exciting nightlife. The Gold Coast is also home to Australia’s most famous theme parks including Dreamworld, Sea World, Warner Bros. Movie World and Wet’n’Wild.

If you’re thinking of making a move to Gold Coast from New Zealand here’s some further information you may find interesting;

  • Families make up a staggering 70% of all households. Families tend to avoid living too close to the tourist hotspots, favouring quieter suburbs like Bundall, Labrador, Ashmore, Broadbeach Waters, and Carrara. These areas have excellent schooling facilities, green spaces and shopping centres. Further south the towns of Elanora, Currumbin and Coolangatta are very popular.
  • Living on the Gold Coast is surprisingly affordable. Once you think beyond the tourist spots housing costs are very competitive when compared to Australia’s bigger cities. Residents enjoy a high-standard living without losing the essential features of major cities: these being premium schooling and further education, sporting facilities, plenty of employment opportunities and effective public transport.
  • Gold Coast City is the ultimate foodies’ destination. You can find everything you want, including traditional Asian dishes, Greek-style decor cafes, Italo-Australian fusion restaurants, modern restaurants and bustling street markets.
  • The city is very well-connected from top to bottom, through a network of bus, tram lines and trains. If you prefer to live inland, it’s recommended you buy a car as it can be an extra walk to reach the closest connections. Gold Coast International Airport is the 7th busiest in Australia, serving over 6 million international and domestic travellers a year.
  • There’s a job for everyone on the Gold Coast. For younger people looking for work experience the tourism, retail, and hospitality sectors are always looking for workers. For others the healthcare, construction and social assistance sectors provide the biggest and fastest growing job markets. While tourism remains the pillar of Gold Coast’s economy, the steady flow of new arrivals is positioning the city as a regional powerhouse of business and employment growth.

Shipping Options to the Gold Coast

Most Ausmove customers use sea freight to send their household goods and personal effects to Gold Coast City. There are various options depending on budget, individual needs, and circumstances. These include;

  • Sending your belongings in a shared or groupage container. This is highly recommended if you are on a tight budget or have a smaller shipment. That’s because you only pay your share of the shipping costs. Although this is the slowest shipping option, that’s not always the case with Ausmove. That’s because we have a high frequency of groupage containers going into the port of Brisbane.
  • Full Container Load (FCL) or sole use container. This is the recommended option if you’re shipping a whole house load or wish to send a vehicle to Gold Coast. There are both 20 foot and 40-foot container options. It’s often possible for us to pack and load at residence and take your container straight to the port, without excessive handling. While this option is slightly more expensive, it is generally quicker and can save you money on transit accommodation costs.
  • Airfreight is also a popular method of shipping personal effects to Gold Coast City. This is extremely quick and often used to send a smaller shipment in advance of sea freight. Our offices are perfectly positioned right beside Auckland airport, which speeds up the process even further. Air freight is popular for customers who have young children or need quick access to their tools of trade, sporting, or office equipment. Many customers use airfreight to reduce the amount of time and cost of a prolonged stay in hotel style transit accommodation.


The security of your personal information is very important in today’s digital world. You don’t want your financial information, passport copies, destination address etc. falling into the wrong hands. You can be assured that Ausmove collect, use, disclose and protect your personal information in strict compliance with the New Zealand Privacy Act and high-level EU (GDPR) standards.
