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.
Escape the urban bustle at Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary and Surfers Paradise Beach. Head to Pacific Fair Shopping Centre and Harbour Town Outlet Shopping Centrefor some retail therapy. Get out of town with these interesting Gold Coast side-trips: Moffat Beach (in Caloundra), Brisbane (South Bank Parklands, Relove Oxley, & more) and Watersports Guru (in Kingscliff). Spend the 5th (Thu) exploring the fascinating underwater world at Sea World Theme Park. There's still lots to do: get in on the family fun at Warner Bros. Movie World, browse the different shops at The Pines Elanora, hike along Cape Byron Walking Track, and enjoy the sand and surf at Burleigh Heads Beach.
