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.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Gold Coast: Ted's Corner (in Capalaba) and Byron Bay (Cape Byron Lighthouse & Cape Byron Walking Track). There's lots more to do: laugh and play at Sea World Theme Park, kick back and relax at Surfer's Paradise Beach, get in on the family fun at Warner Bros. Movie World, and make a splash at Dreamworld.

To see where to stay, maps, more things to do, and tourist information, go to the Gold Coast road trip planning tool .

If you are flying in from Malaysia, the closest major airports are Brisbane International Airport and Gold Coast Airport. In August, plan for daily highs up to 25°C, and evening lows to 11°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 16th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
