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.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Bexhill Open Air Cathedral and Fingal Head Lighthouse. Discover out-of-the-way places like Belongil Beach and Burleigh Head National Park. Get out of town with these interesting Gold Coast side-trips: Broken Head (Broken Head Nature Reserve & Broken Head Beach), Byron Bay (Wategos Beach, Kayaking & Canoeing, & more) and Murwillumbah (Tweed Regional Gallery & Margaret Olley Art Centre & Tweed Regional Museum - Murwillumbah). Spend the 3rd (Sun) exploring nature at Natural Bridge. Spend the 12th (Tue) exploring nature at Springbrook National Park.
