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.
Visit Cape Byron Lighthouse and Fingal Head Lighthouse for their historical value. Relax by the water at Burleigh Head National Park and Surfer's Paradise Beach. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Gold Coast: Glow Worm Caves (in North Tamborine), Caloundra (Dicky Beach & Moffat Beach) and Tropical Fruit World (in Duranbah). Spend the 30th (Wed) exploring nature at Natural Bridge. Spend the 26th (Sat) exploring nature at Les Rodgers Memorial Park. There's much more to do: take in the exciting artwork at Tweed Regional Gallery & Margaret Olley Art Centre, enjoy the sand and surf at Kirra Beach, examine the collection at Ripley's Believe It Or Not! Surfers Paradise, and identify plant and animal life at David Fleay Wildlife Park.
