Living an active, healthy lifestyle is part of the culture of the Gold Coast an as individuals we make choices every day that can have a positive impact on our health. City of Gold Coast provides a number of services and facilities to improve the health and safety of residents and visitors.

Environmental health services

We maximise environmental and public health within a community environment by identifying, preventing and remedying health and environmental related hazards and risks.


From January 2016, Queensland Health’s Gold Coast Public Health Unit will provide immunisation services for the city, i.e. immunisation clinics for children and the Annual School Immunisation Program.
