Suburbs in the City of Gold Coast
Location City of Gold Coast
Number 81 suburbs
Populations 0 (Southern Moreton Bay Islands) – 28,315 (Southport)
Areas 0.6 square kilometres (0.23 sq mi) (Steiglitz) – 100.6 square kilometres (38.8 sq mi) (Numinbah Valley)
Subdivisions Neighbourhoods

There are eighty-one suburbs in the City of Gold Coast, a local government area in Queensland, Australia. The local government area has been amended several times since its creation in 1948, most dramatically by its amalgamation in 1994 with the Shire of Albert, and losing a section centred on Beenleigh north of the Albert River to Logan City in March 2008.

Fifty-two are gazetted as suburbs and twenty-nine as localities. Many suburbs have been established on reclaimed land including saltmarshes, mangroves and tidal flats. Some of these suburbs have developed extensive canal waterways.[1] There are many shopping centres on the Gold Coast.
