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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Brisbane (Eagle Street Pier, South Bank Parklands, & more). There's still lots to do: observe the fascinating underwater world at Sea World Theme Park, buy something for everyone on your list at Pacific Fair Shopping Centre, get in on the family fun at Warner Bros. Movie World, and kick back and relax at Surfers Paradise Beach.
