Southport is the Gold Coast’s Central Business District (CBD), and has played a pivotal role on the Gold Coast and in South East Queensland for more than a century. It was one of the first coastal resort towns in the region, later becoming the administrative and commercial centre of the Gold Coast.
The City of Gold Coast is working to revitalise the Gold Coast CBD as a dynamic and vibrant urban centre that will position the Gold Coast as a globally competitive business, investment and lifestyle destination. A number of significant projects are already underway from both the government and the private sector.
City of Gold Coast is here to support investment and business in the city. The Gold Coast CBD Office is located in the historical Southport Chambers and the team are dedicated to helping you take advantage of new opportunities in the CBD.
Our team provide a range of services; from pre-development meetings, strategic advice and research, business support and capacity building, investment and relocation, partnership opportunities, international delegation assistance, marketing and promotion, to financial assistance and event management.
Our team works closely with the development industry and business as well as state and federal government to connect you with other available programs.
We are the experts on doing business in the CBD. To find out how we can help you, get in touch with us:

The Southport PDA significantly boosts our plans to revitalise Southport as the Gold Coast’s CBD. The PDA status removes development barriers, boosts investment opportunities and facilitates economic development.
The Southport PDA Development Scheme guides planning and development of a vibrant CBD as the definitive centre for commerce.
The Gold Coast CBD has undergone an exciting period of transformation with more than $5 billion worth of public or private investment recently completed.
These projects provide the foundation to support future development and deliver sophisticated transportation links, high-tech knowledge hubs, vibrant multi-cultural precincts and world-class sporting infrastructure.
Parking in the CBD is easy and affordable, with a number of public and private car parks, as well as on street parking, available.
