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 Natural Bridge and Stand-Up Paddleboarding. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Gold Coast: Tweed Regional Gallery & Margaret Olley Art Centre (in Murwillumbah), Chris Cunningham Park (in Tweed Heads) and Byron Bay (Spas, Belongil Beach, & more). Spend the 25th (Wed) exploring nature at Springbrook National Park. There's much more to do: stroll through Kirra Beach, see the interesting displays at Queensland Museum & Sciencentre, have some family-friendly fun at Timezone Surfers Paradise, and explore the wealth of natural beauty at Burleigh Head National Park.

For other places to visit, where to stay, ratings, and other tourist information, refer to the Gold Coast online travel planner .
