A city of towering skyscrapers, sandy beaches, and tree-lined streets, Gold Coast has an unpretentious air complemented by a citywide focus on sports and the arts.

Spend the 25th (Wed) exploring nature at Natural Bridge. There's still lots to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Kirra Beach, putt your heart out at Putt Putt Mermaid Beach, browse the different shops at Robina Town Shopping Centre, and have some family-friendly fun at Slideways - Go Karting Gold Coast.
