The city hosted the 2018 Commonwealth Games. The Gold Coast is also one of the most popular tourist destinations for domestic and international travellers in Australia, with over 1.8 million tourists visiting it every month during peak times (December to February).The Gold Coast region was originally inhabited by local Aboriginal tribes including the Yugambeh and Tweed clans, who traded extensively with Europeans as evidenced by archaeological artefacts found in coastal areas such as Burleigh Heads. The first recorded European sighting of the Gold Coast was made on 20 July 1770 when Lieutenant James Cook aboard HMS Endeavour charted part of its coastline; naming Cape Byron after Vice-Admiral Sir John Byron who was commander at Portsmouth Naval Shipyard at that time..
