Gold Coast

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.
Get some cultural insight at Captain Cook Memorial and Lighthouse and Fingal Head Lighthouse. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Lennox Head Beach and St Vincent's Catholic Church. Change things up with these side-trips from Gold Coast: New Govardhana Australia (in Eungella), Tweed Regional Gallery & Margaret Olley Art Centre (in Murwillumbah) and Bexhill Open Air Cathedral (in Bexhill). Spend the 27th (Wed) exploring nature at Natural Bridge. And it doesn't end there: stroll through Burleigh Head National Park, pause for some serene contemplation at Saint Augustine's Catholic Church, kick back and relax at Kurrawa Beach, and take a tour by water with Boat Tours & Water Sports.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airports are Brisbane International Airport and Gold Coast Airport. Expect a daytime high around 81°F in March, and nighttime lows around 68°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 31st (Sun) so you can travel back home.
