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.

Next up on the itinerary: meet the residents at Sea World Theme Park, find something for the whole family at Wet 'n' Wild Water World, cool off at Dreamworld, and identify plant and animal life at Burleigh Head National Park.
