The Gold Coast theme parks and popular Gold Coast beaches are easily accessible for a day in the sun and surf. Kingston is largely suburban, and popular with young families. Residents enjoy a variety of community events, including multicultural festivals.
The suburb was at one time an important Dairy region, and is still home to the Kingston Butter Factory, which is now a heritage listed arts centres. It also served as a hub for the Mount Taylor Gold Mine which is now capped and disused.
