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 Gold Coast's surroundings by going to Glow Worm Caves (in North Tamborine), Byron Bay (Cape Byron Lighthouse & Cape Byron Walking Track) and Moffat Beach (in Caloundra).

Movie World, enjoy the sand and surf at Surfer's Paradise Beach, explore the striking landscape of Burleigh Head National Park, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Coolangatta Beach.
