Visits & Tours
Throughout the year we are pleased to receive many visits from schools, government organisations and the general public. We are always happy to welcome visitors to the Islamic Society of Gold Coast Mosque.
The Mosque is a place of worship for the followers of the religion of Islam. Followers of Islam are known as Muslims. The word Mosque is the English word for the place of worships of Muslims, which is referred to as a Masjid. The literal meaning of the word Masjid is “A Place of Prostration” which is also referred to as Baitullah (House of Allah). Muslims refer to God as Allah.

We also have a number of faith-based groups, organisational visits and tourists who visit the mosque. Most visits are booked via the main office and in writing either with the Imam or Masjid Management Committee whose contact details can be found here. A normal visit consists of an observation of prayer, a tour of the Masjid building and a Q&A or discussion session. Light refreshments and worksheets are also provided for younger visitors.
