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.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Natural Bridge and Springbrook National Park. Go for a jaunt from Gold Coast to Murwillumbah to see Tweed Regional Gallery & Margaret Olley Art Centre about 54 minutes away. The adventure continues: kick back and relax at Kirra Beach, explore the striking landscape of Burleigh Head National Park, stroll through Kurrawa Beach, and don't miss a visit to Best Of All Lookout.

Queensland’s biggest town and state capital, Brisbane has an attractive, manicured image based around its riverside aesthetic as well as the contrast between its high-rise center and extensive urban greenery.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Mary Cairncross Scenic Reserve and Bee Gees Way. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Brisbane: Wirreanda Park (in Buderim), Maleny Dairies (in Maleny) and Kings Beach (in Caloundra). There's still lots to do: gain some tasty knowledge on a distillery tour, get lost in a book at State Library Of Queensland, stroll around Queens Park, and put a fun spin on your tour with Breakout Brisbane.

To see reviews, maps, where to stay, and other tourist information, go to the Brisbane day trip planning app .

Getting from Gold Coast to Brisbane by car takes about 1.5 hours. Other options: take a bus; or take a train. August in Brisbane sees daily highs of 25°C and lows of 11°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 11th (Sun) to allow time for travel back home.
