Gold Coast

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.
Take a break from the city and head to Lennox Head Beach and Stand-Up Paddleboarding. Step off the beaten path and head to Burleigh Head National Park and Kirra Beach. Explore Gold Coast's surroundings by going to Broken Head (Broken Head Nature Reserve & Broken Head Beach), Tweed Regional Gallery & Margaret Olley Art Centre (in Murwillumbah) and Byron Bay (Kayaking & Canoeing, Wategos Beach, & more). Spend the 6th (Sun) exploring nature at Natural Bridge. Spend the 12th (Sat) exploring nature at Springbrook National Park. The adventure continues: enjoy the sand and surf at Greenmount Beach, take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Tamborine Mountain, stroll through Surfer's Paradise Beach, and buy something for everyone on your list at Robina Town Shopping Centre.
