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 and learn at Queensland Art Gallery and Tweed Regional Gallery & Margaret Olley Art Centre. Relax by the water at Surfers Paradise Beach and Burleigh Heads Beach. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Gold Coast: Brisbane (Old Government House, Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, & more) and Redland Art Gallery (in Cleveland). Spend the 4th (Fri) 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 exhibits of Boomerang Art - Aboriginal Art Gallery, take in panoramic vistas at SkyPoint Observation Deck, and take in the exciting artwork at Anthea Polson Art.
