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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Lennox Head Beach and Natural Bridge. You'll get in some beach time at Burleigh Head National Park and Kirra Beach. Venture out of the city with trips to Tweed Regional Gallery & Margaret Olley Art Centre (in Murwillumbah), Broken Head (Broken Head Beach & Broken Head Nature Reserve) and Byron Bay (Stand-Up Paddleboarding, Spas & Wellness, & more). Spend the 3rd (Mon) exploring nature at Springbrook National Park. And it doesn't end there: stroll through Kurrawa Beach, enjoy the sand and surf at Rainbow Bay, brush up on your military savvy at Ballina Naval & Maritime Museum, and learn about winemaking at Bunjurgen Estate Vineyard.

To find reviews, maps, other places to visit, and more tourist information, use the Gold Coast travel planner.

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major airports are Brisbane International Airport and Gold Coast Airport. November in Gold Coast sees daily highs of 30°C and lows of 20°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 9th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
