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.
Popular historic sites such as Cape Byron Lighthouse and Fingal Head Lighthouse are in your itinerary. You'll explore and learn at Ripley's Believe It Or Not! Surfers Paradise and Tweed Regional Gallery & Margaret Olley Art Centre. Change things up with these side-trips from Gold Coast: Byron Bay (Belongil Beach, Wategos Beach, & more), Lennox Head Beach (in Lennox Head) and Caloundra (Moffat Beach & Dicky Beach). Spend the 15th (Sat) exploring nature at Natural Bridge. Spend the 25th (Tue) exploring nature at Springbrook National Park. The adventure continues: explore the wealth of natural beauty at Burleigh Head National Park, cool off at Dreamworld, look for all kinds of wild species at David Fleay Wildlife Park, and find something for the whole family at Warner Bros. Movie World.
