New App for Gold Coast Travellers

Gold Coast Tourism has released a new free app that is said to become a must-have for travellers to the Gold Coast. The Gold Coast receives around 11 million visitors per year and Gold Coast Tourism is hoping to encourage even more visitors with the release of the app.

According to Gold Coast Tourism CEO Martin Winter, the Gold Coast Traveller App is the result of months of research, testing and development. The Gold Coast City Council played a supporting and consultative role in its development.

Winter added that the app has received a 4.5-star rating in the App Store, with many positive reviews from users and that he expects it to boost sales for local businesses by $1.8 million in its first year.

The App features a searchable directory of businesses, attractions, restaurants, accommodation and tours. There are 18 different features including a Hotspots feature that allows users to see the top-ranked experiences and products, as ranked by other users. There are also What’s Near Me, Public Transport and Flight Info features.
