The Commonwealth Games will bring 17 sports, four para-sports and countless amazing athletic feats to the Gold Coast over its 11 days. It will also provide an opportunity to join in the giant festival atmosphere in one of Australia's best loved beach metropolises. The Gold Coast offers beach culture, nightlife, dining and accommodation aplenty, especially at Surfers Paradise, the Gold Coast's main hub. Add the Commonwealth Games, and you've got a recipe for lots of fun.
