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.
Family-friendly places like Surfer's Paradise Beach and Burleigh Heads Beach will thrill your kids. For shopping fun, head to Pacific Fair Shopping Centre or Harbour Town Outlet Shopping Centre. Step out of Gold Coast to go to Byron Bay and see Cape Byron Lighthouse, which is approximately 1h 30 min away. There's much more to do: try out the rides at Sea World Theme Park, find something for the whole family at Infinity Attraction, identify plant and animal life at Burleigh Head National Park, and browse the different shops at The Oasis Shopping Centre.
