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.
Take a break from the city and head to Burleigh Head National Park and Coolangatta Beach. You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Surfer's Paradise Beach and Moffat Beach. Venture out of the city with trips to Cape Byron Lighthouse (in Byron Bay), Glow Worm Caves (in North Tamborine) and Tweed Regional Gallery & Margaret Olley Art Centre (in Murwillumbah). The adventure continues: browse the different shops at Pacific Fair Shopping Centre, look for all kinds of wild species at David Fleay Wildlife Park, find something for the whole family at Infinity Attraction, and look for gifts at Miami Marketta.
