I've lived in the Gold coast for 28 years. Most crime happens in Surfers Paradise where all the partying is, but even then, only late at night when youths wander around drunk. Also down in the southern parts, near the airport. In many other suburbs the crime is very low.

I have lived on the GC all my life, and as long as you don't walk around alone at dark (especially around bars) and avoid surfers paradise at night (mostly during schoolies) you'll be good :)

I have lived here for 20 years, crime is very low but the perception might be higher due to it being a drunken party town. If you stay away from Surfers Paradise at night then you should have no problems
