The Gold Coast

Forestry Australia and The New Zealand Institute of Forestry is delighted to be hosting ANZIF 2023 on the border of New South Wales and Queensland, in the spectacular Gold Coast region.

The Twin Towns Conference Centre is on the waterfront and conveniently located less than 10 minutes from Coolangatta Airport.

A sun-kissed city by the sea, Australia’s Gold Coast is a place defined by an unmistakable energy. Each year, over 13 million visitors flock to the city, eager to soak up the sun, feel the sand between their toes and take part in the near-limitless range of attractions and experiences. With 57 kilometres of sand and surf, 100,000 hectares of World Heritage listed rainforests, award-winning dining, active pursuits and an ever-evolving calendar – along with more than 300 days of sunshine – the Gold Coast is the perfect destination to add a few extra days pre or post conference.
