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.
For shopping fun, head to Pacific Fair Shopping Centre or Miami Marketta. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Cape Byron Lighthouse and Tweed Regional Gallery & Margaret Olley Art Centre. Take a break from Gold Coast with a short trip to Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary in Brisbane, about 1h 35 min away. Spend the 8th (Wed) exploring the fascinating underwater world at Sea World Theme Park. There's lots more to do: kick back and relax at Surfers Paradise Beach, tour the pleasant surroundings at Burleigh Heads Beach, buy something for everyone on your list at Marina Mirage, and get in on the family fun at Warner Bros. Movie World.

For ratings, reviews, maps, and tourist information, you can read our Gold Coast day trip planner .

If you are flying in from Singapore, the closest major airports are Brisbane International Airport and Gold Coast Airport. In May, plan for daily highs up to 27°C, and evening lows to 15°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 8th (Wed) to allow time to travel back home.
