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.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Cape Byron Lighthouse and Boggo Road Gaol. Escape the urban bustle at Dolphin & Whale Watching and Burleigh Head National Park. Change things up with these side-trips from Gold Coast: Byron Bay (Belongil Beach, Kayaking & Canoeing, & more), Fingal Head Lighthouse (in Fingal Head) and Bexhill Open Air Cathedral (in Bexhill). Spend the 12th (Fri) exploring nature at Natural Bridge. Spend the 22nd (Mon) exploring nature at Springbrook National Park. There's still lots to do: kick back and relax at Kirra Beach, whizz through the canopy at some of the top local zipline courses and adventure parks, browse the exhibits of Tweed Regional Gallery & Margaret Olley Art Centre, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Kurrawa Beach.
