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.
Get some historical perspective at Cape Byron Lighthouse and Fingal Head Lighthouse. Visit Surfer's Paradise Beach and Moffat Beach for some beach relaxation. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Gold Coast: Scuba & Snorkeling (in Tweed Heads), Glow Worm Caves (in North Tamborine) and Dicky Beach (in Caloundra). Spend the 7th (Sun) exploring nature at Natural Bridge. There's still lots to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Burleigh Heads Beach, stroll through Kirra Beach, contemplate the long history of Wolston Farmhouse, and admire nature's wide array of creatures at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary.
