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 in touch with nature at Burleigh Head National Park and David Fleay Wildlife Park. You'll get in some beach time at Surfer's Paradise Beach and Burleigh Heads Beach. Change things up with these side-trips from Gold Coast: Cape Byron Lighthouse (in Byron Bay) and O'Reillys Birds of Prey (in Lamington National Park). Next up on the itinerary: take in panoramic vistas at SkyPoint Observation Deck.
