Gold Coast ©
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.
For shopping fun, head to Pacific Fair Shopping Centre or Tweed Regional Gallery & Margaret Olley Art Centre. Get some cultural insight at Cape Byron Lighthouse and Captain Cook Memorial and Lighthouse. Change things up with these side-trips from Gold Coast: Caloundra (Moffat Beach & Dicky Beach), Fingal Head Lighthouse (in Fingal Head) and Glow Worm Caves (in North Tamborine). The adventure continues: enjoy the sand and surf at Surfer's Paradise Beach, buy something for everyone on your list at Robina Town Shopping Centre, look for all kinds of wild species at David Fleay Wildlife Park, and revel in the low prices at Harbour Town Outlet Shopping Centre.
