City of Gold Coast Data Portal

Welcome to City of Gold Coast's Data Portal, providing access to all of our published open data.

The City's Open Data Portal can help you access our GIS data. With Open Data Portal, you can view it, map it, style it, chart it, download it or share it. How you use it is entirely up to you.

In support of the Queensland Government’s priority to ensure its information is publicly available through open data, providing Queenslanders with the opportunity to create applications, establish research programs, start new businesses and assist with improving government service delivery, City of Gold Coast is committed to providing easy and free access to its Open Data.

You can also request the publication of further datasets by emailing us at opendata@goldcoast.qld.gov.au

Council administration
