You can access our published GIS data through the City's Open Data Portal. How you use this data is entirely up to you – view it, map it, style it, chart it, download it or share it.
In support of the Queensland Government's priority to ensure information is publicly available through open data, City of Gold Coast is providing this data to help our community:
- create applications
- establish research programs
- start new businesses
- assist with improving government service delivery.
You can also request the publication of further datasets by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org

Local government is responsible for providing a number of products and services to the community. To deliver these, the City uses a number of 'administration' datasets, such as suburb boundaries, divisional boundaries, land parcels and local government boundaries.
We are working to protect our landscapes and wildlife, recognising the critical importance of healthy and diverse natural environments in shaping a strong and sustainable future. The data used to support initiatives in this area includes information on fauna, flora and bushfire hazards.
Parks & recreation
The Gold Coast has more than 2200 parks covering 14,000 hectares, almost 700 playgrounds, over 380 barbecues and over 200 sports fields. This theme includes data about parks, barbecues, playgrounds, shelters, showers, tables, bins and other facilities within our parks and open spaces.
Planning & building
City planning is a critical tool in shaping the Gold Coast into a mature, world-class city. To perform this function efficiently a number of information sources are used including zones, building heights, minimum lot size, residential density, flood areas and other related planning material.
Stormwater is rainwater that runs off surfaces such as lawns, roads, roofs, car parks and natural ground surfaces. We maintain stormwater infrastructure to prevent flooding. Datasets that manage stormwater, including drainage pipes, pits, detention basins, are available here.
To provide a balanced transport system with managed road space, infrastructure for cycling and walking, extensions of the rail network and improved bus services, we use the following datasets for transport planning: road segments, pram ramps, road closures, vehicle access, kerb and channel. These are available here.
Water & sewer
To protect our community's health and lifestyle and help build future prosperity, we are responsible for providing safe, reliable water and sewerage services, in cooperation with South East Queensland Water (Seqwater). This theme contains datasets such as the pipe network and hydrant locations.
data.gov.au provides an easy way to find, access and reuse public data. We encourage you to use government data to analyse, mashup and develop tools and applications to benefit all Australians.
