Gilston is a suburb in Gold Coast, Queensland, located 13 kilometres southwest of Southport and 69 kilometres south-southeast of Brisbane. As of 2011, the suburb garnered a population of 1,449 individuals living in the area.

The settlement in the area generally began in the early 1860s. The main industries are dairying and timber cutting.

The Gilston State School provides education from Prep to Year 6 and is currently located at 588 Worongary Road.

In March 1923, the first telephone office in the suburb was opened.
